My male b has developed a rather large lump (about the size of a golf ball) on his belly. I’ve had it examined thoroughly by a Vet and am reassured that it is benign. My b is 9 years old. I’m wondering if I should have it removed as it is slowly growing and somewhat unsightly. Has this happened to your b and if so what would you advise? I would welcome your comments.
Hi. Joey has a golf-sized lump on his front upper leg. When he had his teeth cleaned, the vet aspirated the lump to determine whether it was cancerous or benign. It was benign and the vet said it could be removed regardless. I chose to save money and left it. I am not a medical person so please seek guidance from your vet. Joey was about 10 when his developed.
My Promise has a lump on her neck and the vet got a sample of it just by using a needle. (I'm sorry, I don't remember the word used to describe the process)
It was just a fatty tumor and as long as it doesn't bother her, I am not going to have him do the surgery required to remove it. (She is 14)
