Ask a Dog Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Welcome! I am Dr. Altman, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your questions.
So sorry to hear Wizzer has this cyst on his chest!
First, any new lump/ bump I recommend aspirating or poking with a needle to ensure it is nothing to be worried about
Once aspirated your veterinarian can evaluate the cells under the microscope to ensure it is benign (noncancerous) versus malignant (cancerous)
If it is found to truly be a cyst or fluid-filled sac and Wizzer is leaving it alone then monitoring it should be fine
I always worry about cyst growth and rupturing which can be painful and lead to a secondary infection
So some cysts we will actually aspirate the fluid as needed to remove the excess and reduce the risk of rupture, discomfort, infection
Please let me know if this information makes sense and any additional questions I can assist with regarding this cyst
Perfect, please let me know if I can answer any additional questions for you today! Good luck to you and Wizzer :)
