Abstract: In response to the publication of the article, readers brought to the author’s attention that there are some inaccuracies in the original published article [1]. 1. In the abstract, it is stipulated that thoracic metastasis of mast cell tumours (MCT) has not been reported in dogs, however this is inaccurate and therefore the abstract should be amended to the following: Abstract Background Mast cell tumours are the most common cutaneous neoplasms in dogs. Other primary sites include visceral organs, such as the gastrointestinal tract, liver, or spleen, and the oral cavity. Frequent metastatic sites include the local lymph nodes, skin, spleen, liver and bone marrow. The thorax is rarely affected by metastatic disease. Mast cell tumours are usually not considered as a differential diagnosis for lung and intrathoracic chest wall masses in dogs. Chest wall tumours can be primary tumours of the ribs and sternum, an invasion of adjacent tumours into the chest wall, and metastasis from distant tumours.
