Abstract

Intestinal adenocarcinoma is a malignant tumor. The most common clinical signs of gastrointestinal adenocarcinoma are depression, anorexia, loss of weight, vomiting, diarrhea or constipation due to obstruction. In cats, gastrointestinal adenocarcinomas are the most common non-hematopoietic gastrointestinal tumors and their frequency is higher in males. In this report, the case of an 8 year old male cat with adenocarcinoma that had metastasized to the lymph nodes is presented.
