Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? How long has the mass been there for? Does it seem to bother him at all?
Okay thanks for the additonal information. How big is the mass? If it seems large I would recommend a biopsy of the area to rule out anything malignant. Depending where it is located or the size of it , it may either be able to be removed completely or only a portion of it may need to be removed to get a biopsy.
Okay thanks for the picture. It is definitely helpful. Definitely concerning due to its appearance and its size. I would definitely recommend a biopsy of the mass to get a definitive diagnosis of what the mass may be. That will give you an idea how to best treat it. You may also need to have additional testing such as chest x-rays and labwork
