Statistical data of prevalence of neoplasms and risks in canines associated to age, sex and breed are not available in Quito, Ecuador. In the present study, 13 573 medical records from 2011 to 2014 were evaluated to identify animals diagnosed by cytology and histopathology as positive for some type of neoplasm.
