Customer Question
Open lesions on abdomin...

Open lesions on abdomin close to the surface wuth hard mass underneath.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What sort of animal are we talking about?

Cat

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. Some lumps are serious and some aren't. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. What is the Cat's name and age?

Elvisina she is about 5. I got her off the street. She is mostly white. The hard mass extends across abdomen with a few open spots

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Elvisina?

She is a cat that was dumped in one of my colonies. She seemed to be a pet from day 1. I just pulled her out of tge colony she is crated in my home which is why I have been able to look at her belly more closely
