When do we worry about lumps and bumps on skin of our pets?
As you have probably heard me say before, prevention is better than cure, well in this circumstance we might not be able to prevent, but we can certainly look out for and act immediately when we see lumps and bumps on skin of our pets.
In this FB Live session, Dr Leigh discusses why getting to know your pet and its lumps and bumps on skin are crucial for the early diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer and other cancers under the skin.
It is a sad fact that many people ignore the early signs of bumps under the skin, thinking that it might be a dog cyst or a lipoma, or maybe even ‘nothing’.
Unfortunately, signs of cancer in our pets do show as lumps and bumps and as owners you are the best people to recognise and act when you notice changes.
To help you with recording and recognising your pet’s lumps and bumps we have a free downloadable Body Map that you can print off, and record all your pets skin abnormalities on.
In this talk you will hear Dr Leigh discuss:
1. examination of your pet’s body
2. how to measure lumps and bumps
3. when to seek a vet’s opinion
4. how vet’s will diagnosis the lump
5. what treatments for skin cancer will occur
If you have any questions about lumps and bumps on skin in your pets ask us below in the comments or if you prefer we can offer a personal consult to assess your pet via video.
