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 to us at West Midlands Referrals with a left hind limb lameness of a few weeks duration.
After removing a tumour, there was a large wound that we couldn’t 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 at West Midlands Referrals a couple of weeks later for wound closure.
Cassie presented to us at West Midlands Referrals 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 to us at West Midlands Referrals for the 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 she had been referred to us at West Midlands Referrals by a local vet. 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.
