Customer Question

Our 10 year old German Shepard has what we believed was a fatty lump on her back leg. It is about the size of baseball now and has open sores on it. It does not stop her from running, walking or standing on her back legs to see over the short fence. What would be the treatment options and approximate costs. She has a history of liver disease in her line and she has lived several years longer than expected. She does not seem to be in any pain. It has gotten noticeably bigger in the last few months, We aren't sure if the sores are caused by her licking it or if she scraped it along something. She still eats regularly, wags her tail and is excited to see us.
