Two of my labs Bear and Blue are 11+ now, and when they were between 9 and 10 both had little tumors.The vet didn't seem too consirned and now their is no sign of them.Seems to be more common in some breeds than others,and most end up being binine(sp?)

Default Yes they can

We had a Bouvier de Flanders,she was about 10 yrs old when got skin cancer,all benign -about 7 of them.She began losing weight,vet put her on special food & took alot of tests-refused to admit she could have cancer. Less than a year later we had to put her down for cancer.

I should clarify this to state: when asked the vet if internal cancer possible he stated if they have tumors on outside they can't possibly have them inside.

Live & learn,got a new vet of course.

Happy is ten and developed two fatty tumors this year... it was really scary to find them, but they are apparently very common and normal for "senior" dogs - and I guess anything over seven is senior! Yikes!

mary is my lumpy bumpy old wonderful woman. I did have her fatty tumor checked out in the beginning, but as long as they are pliable and move that is a good indication that they are not harmful. If they are firm and feel like the end of your nose you best have a vet check

love comes in many directions with mary
