Breast cancer is one of the most frequent injuries in female dogs and often constitutes considerable aggressiveness. Your definitive diagnosis is established by histopathological examination, and the Pap test is still poorly used to help diagnose this injury in Veterinary Medicine. On the other hand, in Human Medicine, the Pap test has been widely used as an important auxiliary tool in the diagnosis of breast cancer, contributing to the decision of the therapeutic management and prognosis. Studies have shown that breast carcinoma in bitches and women share many similarities in the pathogenesis and morphological characteristics, mainly. On this track, this study aimed to carry out a comparative study between cytopathology and histopathology examinations of bitches and to establish their malignancy criteria, in order to verify the agreement between the parameters found and the applicability of the Pap test in the diagnosis of this injury in dogs, since the study of this lesion in these animals can also serve as a study model for the disease in women. The study of the samples and establishment of the criteria proved to be satisfactory, enabling conclusive diagnosis of breast cancer in bitches.
