The authors present a retrospective study on cases of malignant epithelial neoplasms in dogs and cats, over a period of time of two years (2013-2015), diagnosed in the Medical Clinic of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of Bucharest, within the cytology and hematology laboratory, with a quick and easy technique as the cytomorphological exam. In this paper work, based on the studied cases (39 dogs and 11 cats), we intend to bring new information related to the incidence of these cancer forms in the two species, analising several aspects: solid tumors with various anatomical localizations (mammary gland, perianal region, testicle etc.), celullar proliferation of cavitary fluids and internal viscera solid tumors. Our study shows how of a great importance is to corroborate the clinical investigations with laboratory investigations. Our study demonstrated the possibility of double cancers or metastases, which are very important data for the therapy.
