Few days ago I noticed a small lump on the outside of my dogs knee. It didn't appear to cause any distress when I touched it, but I arranged a vet visit anyway.
The vet said it could be a tumour or it just a harmless growth. She cut off the external growth for biopsy. She said if it does turn out to be a tumour there are two options.
1. A kind of syringe treatment to clean it out, but that does have a danger of spreading the tumour.
2. An operation under general anaesthetic to cut out the infected area.
She gave me an extimate for the operation - £600
Already paid £40 for the consultation.
Anyway, Vet called a few hours later to say it is a tumour and really needs to come out.
I've got my mum to call the PDSA to see if they can do it for a lower cost.
