Volumes have been written on the surgical management of neoplasia. Maxillectomy and mandibulectomy, both partial and radical are everyday procedures for oral surgeons. Most animals handle these procedures quite well and it is the owners that tend to have the difficulties accepting the changes. The most important point to remember is early diagnosis. In a word: biopsy. Many times radical procedures might have been avoided had an early diagnosis been made and local excision would have been curative.
