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.
On in May 2018 Romeo, a 7 year old Chihuahua presented for left maxillectomy (radical removal of part of the upper jaw) for a plasmacytoma.
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.
A 3-year-old Bulldog presented for attention her breed-related “screw tail”. The deep skin folds associated with the cork-screw tail led to festering skin infections.
A 7-year-old female Labrador presented with a large soft tissue mass, a leiomyosarcoma (a malignant tumour of smooth muscle cells), in the perineum (the area between the vagina and the anus).
A 12 year female Border Collie presented with a massive (>2kg) soft tissue mass over the right rump. This was believed to be a soft tissue sarcoma and had grown over a couple of years. It was removed with reductive intent rather than curative intent.
A 45 kg, 10-year-old cross bred dog presented for CT chest/neck and surgical removal of an apparently well-defined mass between the left carotid artery and the trachea. Our colleague Mayra had recently scanned him.
