Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 10 months ago

I am sorry to hear about Page's fatty tumors. The bot***** *****ne is that we do not know why dogs form lipomas, or any tumors (benign or otherwise). A high fat diet might predispose a dog to these. Certain breeds that were developed to form a fat layer below the skin, like Labrador retrievers who have to swim in icy water, may develop fatty tumors more than other breeds.

Outside of feeding a low fat diet, there is no known way to prevent these, and even that may not help. There is no way to make them go away, except surgical removal.

I have asked this questions to board certified oncologists, and they just do not know!

Please let me know what other questions I can answer.
