I work with an animal rescue and we had a dog brought in

Customer Question

Hello, I work with an animal rescue and we had a dog brought in with what looks like a very large Epulis tumor. He is a small JRT mix, age unknown. It is 4 times the size of his nose. He is staying at an animal hospital for now. Is surgery successful, or is this a recurring problem? Thank you
