the dog is registered at the pdsa
Ok, thank you.So you would need to call your local pdsa directly.Usually the first step with an internal lump like this would be some imaging such as an abdominal scan or Xray.If a mass is confirmed, we may then biopsy it. How this is done will depend on the size and location of the lump.A treatment plan will then be made which may include surgical removal of the growth.

I do hope this helps and please let me know if you have any further questions.

This window stays open so you can keep me updated.

Wishing Bullseyes all the very best and stay safe.
