Ask a Vet and Get Your Veterinary Questions Answered.
Hello. Well, the specialization does not go quite that far in veterinary medicine. What you are looking for is a veterinary internist who is properly equipped and experienced to deal with the problem.
You can use this link to locate the internist that are closest to where you live. It will simply be a matter of taking some time to screen through the internist to see who's experience, communcation, etc...is suitable for you.
Find Various Specialists
--> Under "specialty" select SAIM = Small Animal Internal Medicine
--> Or, you can search for a Neurologist, Cardiologist or Oncologist
There is no doubt that if you wanted to drive to a veterinary school's teaching hospital, they would be more that capable of handling this situation, but that is not entirely necessary.
That link is my best suggestion. Unlike human medicine, you do not even need a direct referral from your vet. Feel free to call anyone on that link. When necessary, the internist will simply contact your primary vet for whatever info they need.
That's about the most I can help from ehre.
Would appreciate any more specific info that you might be able to give
Personally, if previously biopsied as a cancerous growth, the likelihood of a complete excision this way is unlikely.
Depending upon where it is located in the colon, a "pull-through" approach or abdominal approach to ensure complete excision is recommened.
Suspect microscopic diagnosis is in error since the poly has not changed in one year

Website that will enable you to contact just about any local internist?
Wow...very surprised from one professional to another. I have no idea what answer would have been satisfactory. For me to randomly pick one internist in your area would have been a bad answer. Giving you the ability search for internists and screen them yourself, I thought was an excellent.I'm done.
