Our 11 year old male Vizsla has many lumps all over his

Our 11 year old...

Our 11 year old male Vizsla has many lumps all over his body, but our big concern is that the area around his penis started sagging. Hard to know if it's a huge lump or what could be causing this and if it's dangerous. Ever heard of such a condition?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Some lumps are serious and some aren't. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca; I am a veterinarian. Please give me a moment to type my answer.

I am sorry to hear you are concerned about your Vizsla. Have any of his lumps been tested or biopsied to see if they are benign?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

The sagging you describe could be from fat, or a fatty tumor, forming between his penis and the rest of his body. It could also be a more serious type of growth, such as a mast cell tumor.

I might consider having FNA, fine needle aspiration done. Your veterinarian would insert a tiny fine sterile needle into the area, to get cells to look at under a microscope.

They have not yet been biopsied. Our former Vizsla had them also, and caused no dire health issues. He's seeing his vet on Monday and I'm so worried it will be some terminal condition.

Often growths like this are benign fatty tumors, called lipomas. FNA should tell you if it is.

That is the most likely thing your vet will find.

Rebecca, You've provided me with enough information to rest easy until he sees the vet on Monday by offering two possibilities. I greatly appreciate your help. You know how we Vizsla parents can be a bit over-vigilant! It's such a wonderful service you offer. Please know your public is grateful.

Rebecca, You were spot on with your answers. All the lumps, bumps and sagging are fatty tumors. The examining vet said he's healthy and good to go. Thanks again for your expertise.

Thanks for the update; glad it was just fat.
