A middle aged Doberman presented with a firm painful swelling at the top of the humerus in the right forelimb. Radiography of the affected limb revealed the typical features of a malignant bone tumour called an osteosarcoma. There were no masses visible in the lungs on x-rays at this time.
Bubbles, a four year old boxer bitch presented with a left hind limb lameness of a few weeks’ duration.
After removal of a tumour, there was a large wound that we weren’t able to close with local skin.
Lola had a large wound after trauma. Her owner vets had attempted a closure but unfortunately this came adrift, and she was referred to us a couple of weeks later for wound closure.
Cassie presented with a long standing mast cell tumour that had grown under her Achilles tendon. It was getting knocked and inflamed.
A female Staffie Bull Terrier was admitted for removal of a mass from the caudal thigh. This was likely to be a soft tissue sarcoma from fine needle aspirates done by the referring vet, and the owner requested excision on that basis without further confirmatory biopsy.
Bella, a 10 year old Staffie, had a large soft tissue sarcoma over her lateral left elbow. Excision with margins wasn’t feasible. Amputating her leg was a huge step to take for a mass that was unlikely to ever spread beyond the leg.
