Default FAtty tumours

A lady at the dog park looked at the one on Mary's side (the one my mother tells Mary that a puppy is in it) and told me about her dog's tumour and how it ruptured. SHe said it was awful and messy but the vet said it was not serious. I look at the one on Mary's side and pray that it doesn't. I cant begin to imagine. Has that happened to anyone here? Mary is more lumps and bumps then not on her stomach and the one on her side is huge.

Yes, my mother's dachshund, who is now 17, had one on her stomach, below her chest. It was there for years, and it did burst one day. It was disgusting, and ended up getting extremely infected afterwards, and required a vet stay and some antibiotics.

So yes, they can burst.

Basically , whether it opens on it's own or is removed ,the treatment is the same . At Mary's age, I'd let nature take it's course .

Dogy had a very massive fatty tumor on her side. Grew to the size of a baseball. If they stay fairly small, they aren't a great concern, but we usually always have them surgically removed anyway.

Good Lord i hope it doesn't. It is enormous, easily the size of a grapefruit. Everyone comments on it when we go to the dog park. WHat is that? Does it hurt her? Is it cancer? They can't see the dozen or more she has on her belly. SHe is my lumpy bumpy woman now. SHe saw the vet a couple weeks ago when i took everyone in for their shots and got ear meds for her. He didn't say anything about it so i guess he wasn't concerned.

Yikes, that's big. My mom's dog's was the size of a golf ball when it burst. Size of a grapefruit sounds worrisome.

My old girl Midnite has very large ones on her sides and I always pray they don't open up. All of them are just fatty tumors and because of her age I won't have them removed. She has many on her belly too. Don't really like giving her belly rubs anymore because of it.
