Identifying Tumors on Your Dog
No one likes tumors on their dog, but some are problematic and some are not. Here’s how to tell the difference.
Given the opportunity to examine an older dog, I’ll very likely find at least one or two cutaneous (within the skin) or subcutaneous (just beneath the skin surface) lumps and bumps. Such growths are common by-products of the canine aging process. In this regard, I liken them to the brown spots that appear on our skin as we get older.
