Speaker: Dr. Sarah Beatty
If you’ve ever found lumps and bumps on your pet’s skin, chances are you’ve felt concern — even alarm. However, most of these types of growths will prove to be benign, or non-cancerous. Even so, an unusual or fast-appearing skin abnormality in your pet deserves your attention, and should be seen by a veterinarian. The good news is that through cytology, the examination of cells under the microscope by a clinical pathologist, you are likely to get a quick diagnosis, and can form a treatment plan as soon as possible if needed. On this show, Dr. Sarah Beatty, a clinical pathology specialist, will discuss the types of lumps and bumps commonly found on pets, and how they are commonly dealt with to ensure your pet stays both comfortable and healthy.
