My 9.5 y.o. male black lab mix Milo weighs 125#. Don't know what the mix is. He has a large lump on the side behind one of his front legs. It is firm but not hard and the vet said it was a fat deposit. It has gotten larger over the past 2 yrs. One vet said he could remove it but another vet said it would just come back. Is that true? Any advice on remove or not? Any warnings about this lump--could it become cancerous or something worse?
It sounds like your pet has a lipoma and in my experience they do not come back after removal. I remove them only if they bother the dog. vetcare
