In dogs, thyroid carcinomas are capable of invading regional blood vessels.

Severe hemorrhage may result from arterial invasion in dogs with thyroid carcinomas.

Computed tomography may be helpful in the diagnosis of thyroid carcinomas in dogs.

Although surgery is typically the treatment of choice for dogs with a thyroid carcinoma, adjunctive chemotherapy in combination with radiation therapy may be beneficial if the tumor cannot be completely resected.
