|Farley has what seems to be a small lipoma on his left leg around his knee area. I'm not sure how long it's been there (it's small, so it's hard to feel unless you really try, and you can't see it through his fur).
It's about 1/3 of an inch around, round, soft, and a bit mobile. Doesn't appear to cause him any pain or discomfort when I put pressure on it.
I made an appointment for him to get it looked at tomorrow morning, and I guess they'll probably aspirate it just to make sure it's a lipoma, but it definitely sounds like one.
Has anyone else dealt with a lipoma on a dog? I know they're common on older dogs and Farley is 6 and this would be his first one. Are they usually something that have to be surgically removed?
