Good Afternoon and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
This other tumor may not be the same as the first one. I suspect that the one on Cookie's toe is a Melanoma which is very serious but the one by her nipple may merely be a benign skin mass and when they ulcerate, they will continue to bleed until it is removed. It would be best to have this one removed and biopsied to be sure. It may be able to be removed under a local and if not, it will continue to bleed and make a mess.Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you. Sincerely, ***** *****
Since this last one is painful and is bleeding, it must be removed or it will keep bleeding until it is removed. This is the best way....then you will know for sure. Cookie's age and breed makes her susceptable to these masses.
