The aim of this study was to report the occurrence of two cases of thyroid neoplasm in dogs. The treatment of choice for these cases was surgical removal. In both cases the diagnostic was infiltrative follicular carcinoma of thyroid. The first animal did not present a good recovery after the surgery, and died four hours after the procedure. In the second case, the diagnosis was more precocious and antineoplastic chemotherapy was used after the surgery. At the time of submission of this manuscript, this animal had survived for fourty months. Currently, there is a need to define the protocols of chemotherapy to avoid relapse and metastases, in order to increase the life expectancy in dogs with thyroid neoplasm.
