Movable is good...right?
Cappy started developing lipomas around age 6 and currently has at least 8. We've had several already removed in the past three years. Some are attached to the flesh and are of more concern to me than those that are "movable"... meaning soft and slide around with the skin. If your dawg goes to a vet regularly, be sure to point them out. The vet can almost always tell by feel if they are simple fatty tumors (lipomas) or, if questionable, will needle aspirate and look at the fluid on a slide. If there's still a question they will either recommend removing it or at least doing a "punch biopsy" for a pathologist to examine if they feel that's more advisable.Magnum has many of them now, and Ruger's just popped two of them.
Never heard of the "movable" thing before. Have your vet aspirate it if in doubt.
Good thoughts for both of you AnneThanks, all. =) Murphy will be going in to see the vet later this week to have the little lump aspirated. I (personally) need to know. Though, I am sure it will be fine.
