Vet Diary - Routine Checks

When you agree to take any animal into your home, you have to accept responsibilty for it, and make sure you check it regularly. Not just a quick glance, but actually run your hands over it, at least once a week. It can be quite surprising sometimes, what can be lurking under all that hair!

Growth under hair Growth on neck exposed Growth removed now scarred

A quick stroke of this dog (as we love doing here at Stray Aid!) revealed a growth lurking under its long hair. Although the growth was smooth and did not appear sinister, we thought it was better to be removed incase the collar aggravated it in the future. As you can see, the growth was successfully removed, ensuring that the new owners could forget about the lump and concentrate on enjoying their new dog.

They fell in...…read more
