Lipomas in Dogs

I see a lot of Lipomas in my grooming business and sadly it does not have to be that way.  So what is Lipomas anyway?  Lipomas are one of the most common benign tumors found in dogs. Most often they appear in older and/or overweight dogs.  You may have heard the words fatty tumors, "growths" and often describe them as fat deposits. These are most always found  in the subcutaneous tissue. These are firm yet moveable and are painless.  

If you find a lump on or under your dog's skin, have him examined by your veterinarian. The veterinarian can determine if it is a lipoma by examination and can verify it by performing a fine needle aspirate or a biopsy. Treatment for this is surgical removal, but usually it is not necessary because these growths are benign and rarely become overly large.  If the tumors are in areas that can cause difficultly in movement such as under the legs in the pit area, they can be removed.

The best preventive is the use of one simple supplement NuVet Plus
