My choco lab had two spots removed yesterday. The one on her side the vet and I think is a Mast cell tumour. The one on her inner front leg don't know, might be just a bug bit??
She is very tired and I think mad at me for taking her.
Found out that all the licking down under is that she has an "innie" and we are to use baby wipes a couple times a week. The licking of her anals was nothing as they were empty. She licks them a lot so don't know why in case she just likes to be extra clean.
Will let you know when the report comes back.
Thanks for your posts.
I'm glad your baby is home with you...hope she has a speedy recovery.

She'll get over her pouting now that she's back with you.
Thanks for your good wishes. She is better today with us. I think she was just a combo of drugged and mad at us at the same time.
Her stitches look good although she is able to lick at the ones on her inner front leg. So we are watch patrol for the next couple of weeks.
I will let you know when the report comes in. THanks
I hope your pup is alright.
So they also told you she had an innie...is she spayed yet? If not, wait until she is through her first heat as it will right itself after the heat is over.
Pleased your baby is home.
continued good thoughts.
Report came in today. The lump on her side was a cyst and not a mast cell tumour. The vet and I were 99% sure that it was going to come back as a MCT. So we are happy but surprised too.
The small little lump on her inner front leg that we thought was a bug bit but she had had for more than two weeks turned out to be a grade l mast cell tumour. Again, the vet was not sure what this was going to be but was surprised that it was a mast cell.
So, they got it all and we are happy for the results. All her 9 mast cell tumours have been grade l and all completely removed. Thank goodness for that.
Just wish she would stop getting them. If anyone knows of any studies being done on these tumours, please let me know if you know of anything about how to prevent them.
I'm so happy that it just was a harmless cyst
