Customer Question

My male dog has a large saucer sized growth on his abdomen, a smaller one under his leg and an even smaller one on his chest. These are quite new, perhaps less than a month. They are fleshy and under the skin. I had noticed he was drinking more water about six months ago and he seems to be panting more. My vet checked him about 3 months ago for diabetics and he was fine. He gets his annual injections, workers and flea treatments. Freddie is about 6. A very large mongrel and has been neutered. Help, I'm really worried!

Aloha! You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin
I'm sorry to hear of this with Freddy. Can you tell me, please, if Freddy continues to be polydipsic (drinking excessively) and panting more? In addition, do you think he's polyphagic (hungrier than usual)?
