I have 2 labs they are about 6 and 7 years old , about a year ago I found a growth under the skin on one of my labs (the older one) I asked the vet about it and it said that it was a Lafoma basically fatty tissue and not to worry about it because it was common to the breed.it could be surgically removed but he did not recommend it where it wasnít bothering them.
Over time she got a few more now I have found them on my other lab the (younger one). They donít seem to cause any discomfort or bother them in any way there just bumps, soft to the touch but noticeable when petting.
My brother-in-laws Lab a little older had a cancer growth a few months ago but that was scabby and drained and needed to be removed.
Anyone with older labs seen these? Should I not worry about them like the Vet said?
They are super common, and only need to be removed if they interfere with quality of life.
Vets can poke them and look at the tissue under a microscope. Fatty tissue is easy to see.
thanks for the spell check even google couldn't get it right for me :grinning:
that's king of what I was hoping to here I think they bother me more than them
