D'Elle Posted July 5, 2015 Report Share Posted July 5, 2015 This is about my terrier, Digger. He has two lumps just under his skin, one on his ribs and one in his groin. The vet said, about 8 months ago, that they were extremely unlikely to be anything but fatty deposits, and not to worry about them but keep an eye on them to see if they get bigger. They have gotten larger, although not super rapidly. I have a friend whose standard poodle has such a lump and she put off having it removed because it was not life threatening. Finally it got so large she felt she had to have it removed, but when they did the bloodwork prior to surgery they discovered issues making the surgery impossible. Now he is carrying around this huge still growing lump that can't be removed. My concern is if I wait, perhaps the same thing could happen with Digger. But on the other hand, if they are not life threatening, perhaps I should not do surgery because of course a general anesthetic is always dangerous in and of itself. I am pretty attached to this little dog and want to make the best decision for him. Comments or advice? Have you had any experience with this kind of thing?
