Thank you for your question. My name is***** I have been a small animal veterinarian for 13 years and I'd like to hope with your question. Can you tell me a bit more. Did the veterinarian do a needle aspirate of the cyst? Was it full of clear fluid or was it infected? Can you tell me more about his trouble walking. Is he painful or just weak? Is it something that has come on suddenly?
