Dog With Neoplasia

Sharon asks,

I have a dog with a neoplasia on his shoulder, its pretty big and full of blood, had all kinds of tests done but not the CT scan, can't afford to do that. Removal was recommended but worried that he could lose a lot of blood.  Is this something your facility can do. I have all the records and the lump appeared in 2 days, it's the size of a softball.

Dr. Spencer's response:


Thank you for you question. I am sorry that your poor pup is has a tumor. We are able to do many types of soft tissue surgery here at Patton Veterinary Hospital. In order to assess our ability to best treat your dog, we would first need to examine him. This will help us make the appropriate recommendations regarding his tumor. Please call or email us to set up an appointment so that one of our five doctors may better assist you.

    Very nice pet hospital. We were extremely pleased. Impressed by the education they give you as well. Our dog had her teeth cleaned and the nurse spent 10 minutes going over post-op procedures. Also we needed to come back in one week to have sutures looked at and they don't charge you an office visit for that like Leader Heights Animal Hospital would do


    I am extremely happy with the care that my puppy Cody received when he had his recent hip surgery. I highly recommend Patton Veterinary Hospital.

    I would absolutely recommend Patton to anyone who has pets. Fabulous service every time by all the staff. Thank you


    The entire staff is courteous, friendly, and helpful. They all seem to have a true love for all pets. They follow-up promptly and we have never had a problem with any of the doctors (Dr. Doug is our primary) or any of the other staff.
