It is a lipoma !!!! Thank goodness-I was so worried but as you all know, they are common in labs. She aspirated it and also took a thyroid test cuz Boone is shedding beyond shedding. No skin problems so she thought a thyroid test might be a good idea. This shedding is more than just blowing his coat. We are surprised he has hair on his body. I questioned maybe it is his food but she said if he has no skin problems it probably isn't that. She also suggested to give him fish oil, so we will try that.
Oh and he had his nails trimmed. He is now sleeping after the big ordeal and I am so happy that he is okay. Thanks for all the good thoughts--as always JL rocks !!!
boone and joann
Glad his lumpomas are benign
