Default Why Most Lipomas (Fatty Tumors) Should NOT be Removed

Learn about the rare times that a Lipoma should be removed by your vet...http://healthypets.mercola.com/sites...og-lipoma.aspx





Quote:
A lipoma is a lump or bump that is actually a benign fatty mass. Lipomas are the most common type of noncancerous growths in dogs, and typically grow just under the skin on the neck, upper legs, underarms, or torso.

Dr. Becker has found there is often a correlation between the number and size of lipomas, the dogís overall vitality, and his ability to metabolize fat. Dogs with metabolism problems tend to have more lipomas.

A fine needle aspirate will determine whether a lump or bump on your dog is something to be concerned about, or a harmless fatty mass.

If it is a lipoma, unless it is interfering with your petís mobility or quality of life, thereís no need to remove it. Going forward, the mass should be routinely monitored for changes in its size or shape.

To give your pet the best chance to avoid lipomas, we recommend keeping him at a healthy weight and feeding a balanced, species-appropriate diet that is minimally metabolically stressful.

Also offer fresh, filtered drinking water, and take care not to over-vaccinate or over-medicate your dog.
