January 12, 2007, Newsletter Issue #167: Canine Lipoma

Tip of the Week

Canine lipoma is a fatty-cell tumor usually found on older dogs. However, sometimes puppies or young adult dogs can get them as well. This common condition is typically benign, meaning that it is not life threatening. The lipoma can be single or multiple tumors on a dog's body. Treatment is not necessary unless the tumor causes the dog problems or if the owner wants to remove them for cosmetic reasons.
