After surgery I started calling the vet after 5 days hoping the biopsy report would be in early. Then day 7 I called again and it still wasn't so the staff said the vet would call as soon as it came in. The doctor called yesterday late afternoon after his office visits.
Ben has a low grade (thank God) MAST CELL tumor. Thank goodness I took him in to have it removed immediately as it could have developed quickly into a worse problem. I've never seen this on my other dogs but understand it is common with both cats and dogs.
It was a soft tissue and looked harmless. BUT, had it been on my body I'd have wanted my dermatologist to remove it immediately. Since my boy Ben is my companion and my FAMILY I treat his health as tho he were my child.
You can learn more about that health issue by Googling MAST CELL TUMOR. And, please consider adoption for your next pet. This is a sweet loving Rottweiler (okay, he hates cars and trucks) but he loves people, particularly kids. He will go right past adults to seek out children and he loves my grandson.
A disclaimer, as with any pet purchase or adoption, please make sure it is a suitable fit with the family and learn about their history if you can.
I love my handsome boy Ben.
Hugs to all.
