• My dog has a fatty tumor on her leg. Is it necessary to have it removed?

    I recommend that you talk to your veterinarian about this question. The decision on whether to remove a tumor or not will depend on a few different factors. These include the type of tumor, size, location, and your pet’s overall health. With it being on her leg it could also potentially affect how she walks which is also a factor. Your vet knows your pet and will be able to give you the best advice on this.
