Masses are a common condition in pets. These masses can grow on, in, or just under the skin. Ranging in size from a couple of millimeters to football-sized, masses can represent a wide variety of conditions from simple skin tags, to scars, to malignant cancers, to large fatty growth on dogs and cats. 

Inquire below and our surgery concierge will reach out to answer all of your questions, and help you schedule a visit with one of our highly-trained veterinarians.

Mass Removal Surgery

Mass removals typically require sedation or general anesthesia. This serves three functions: ensuring your pet holds perfectly still (with no sudden movements that could cause injury), keeping your pet fear-free (they’ll sleep rather than feeling nervous), and avoiding pain.

Once the mass is removed, our veterinarian will send it to a laboratory for analysis. This test, called a “histopathology,” is the most accurate way to determine what the mass is (and, if it’s cancerous, to determine whether or not all of the cancer was removed). 

In some cases, our team may recommend just monitoring a mass. This is common for masses that look and feel benign (like skin tags). Or, if a mass removal is recommended, we will go over the specific plan with you and answer all of your questions.
