Vet Diary - Elsie's Lump

Elsie, an elderly crossbreed, was brought to our vet with a rather suspicious thickening in the skin. Without further investigation, it was impossible to be sure whether this was sinister or not.

When the hair was clipped, 2 small puncture wounds became visible. It was decided that, although probably a reaction to this previous bite injury, it was safest for Elsie if it was surgically excised, to ensure it did not become malignant in the future. As you can see from the photos above, this thickening has been cleanly removed. Elsie has made a full recovery, and been transferred to Jerry Green Dog Rescue at Thirsk, along with presumed daughter Rita who was picked up on the streets with her.
