Default Cyst/Tumor ?

I found a soft lump, about 3/4" diameter, about midway up the rear leg of
my Yellow Lab mix. Will call Vet for appointment. Anyone have any info that
can clam me down?


Thanks,


Tony

Could very well just be a fatty tumor (not to be scared about) or cyst. Your
vet may aspirate a bit to see what's in there or opt to remove it.

And when you get it asptrated, ask your vet to make a note to keep in
your dog's chart about where the lump is, what its size is and when it
was aspirated.

We had a lumpy old Lab and sometimes we'd forget information. The chart
was really handy.


I have friends who have a "map" of their Newf mix's lumps. When they
start adding up, that's very handy!
