RE: [RC] cancer in horses. what do you know about it? - heidi

Melinda, there are all sorts of cancers in horses, just as there are in people.  Some are treatable, some are not very treatable.  Some are debilitating, some are less so.  I only know of one right off the top of my head that is more prevalent in a particular color--and that is malignant melanoma in greys. 
You need to have a vet see your horse, and determine what the specific problem is, and if it is indeed some form of cancer, then determine the best course of treatment for that specific type of cancer.

i may have a horse that has some type of cancer. what do you guys know about cancer. is it treatable? will the horse be able to continue in the same manner? is it debilitating? is it more common in certain breeds or colors or bloodlines? just tell me all that you guys know. thanks so much.

looking forward to the new ride season- but now not so sure
