Customer Question

I have an 11 yr old female border collie. she has a lump the size of a golf ball or a bit smaller on her up rt leg and the vet does not know what it is. She has done blood work and states its at normal levels. A rx for previcox was given.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the Border collie?
Customer: she appears healthy, weight 75lbs but does have a limp when she first stands up. there is another one growing on her left outer paw.

Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your border collie!

Has your vet discussed doing a needle aspirate of the growths?
