This is Daisy who came in to see us with a large lipoma on her chest. A lipoma is a fatty deposit. In most cases these remain small and can be left as they are non-threatening to a pet’s health. However, when they impede a pet’s movement or when the lipoma causes the skin to stretch so that it starts to become irritated and angry, there is a discomfort and quality of life issue. In Daisy’s case, as you can see from the photo, her lipoma was a considerable size and a bit like a pendulum dangling from her chest. Her lipoma weighed around 1kg, so you can imagine the difference Daisy must have noticed post-op. We hope you are enjoying your new found physical freedom Daisy!
