Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
It is not uusual for older dogs like sweet Maggie, to develop benign lipomas which are only areas of fat deposition. These are harmless unless they get large enough to interfere with function. IT would be best to have your vet take a needle biopsy to know for sure but from your description and taking into consideration of Maggie's age, these masses are most likely benign and will not cause Maggie any harm.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, ***** *****
