She has a lump...

She has a lump in her throat, about where an adam's apple would be, if dogs have one of those.

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. What is the dog's name and age?

Maggie, She's 7 yrs

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Maggie?

Her appetite has increased

Hi

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

Just the one lump on one side? Or are there two lumps there?

Paul

Just one side

Okay thanks

I am worried that this is a thyroid or parathyroid mass

She needs to be examined and that mass ultrasounded

It could also be an abscess or cyst but they will know that from the ultrasound

Make sense?

Paul

Thanks for the information. I'll call her regular vet to get her in. Can you briefly explain a parathyroid mass?

Sure

Parathyroid glands are associated with the thyroid glands

Function in regulating calcium levels in body

If it is this the calcium will be very high
