Cardiac neoplasms are uncommon tumours in dogs with an incidence between 0.2% to 3%. They may arise from various cardiac sites, including the atria, auricles, valves, ventricular wall, heart base, pericardial tissue, and the great vessels; the most commonly identified primary cardiac tumours are haemangiosarcomas, chemodectomers (heart base tumours) and mesotheliomas.
