Adipoma?
Weight loss
Image by timtak
When I took my aging border collie bitch to the vet today, they pointed out that she has a swelling near her front left ankle (see note). The vet suggested benign adipoma, but asked if I would like a biopsy. Should I?

She has some weight loss. A little out of sorts. Probably a vaginal infection. Blood tests normal. No gum cancer or womb cancer (I know, bitches should be spayed).

Hikari got better and stopped peeing around the house. We had a biopsy done on the lump on her led and it was a benign adipoma. It seemed to cause her a little discomfort but it was not the cause of her recent death in January 2012.
