Large cyst on our dog

3 posts in this topic

Our black lab has had a cyst(vet diagnosed during check-up) about a 1/2" from her rectum. The vet said if it gets larger it might have to be removed, and there might be a chance of incontinence because of the area it is in.

It is getting larger but it does not seem to be causing any pain.

Has anyone seen this before and has anyone had it removed? Also any reccomendations of a good vet in the SE metro to have this removed by.

Thanks,

Jim

I had a yellow lab with cysts when she got older (about 7years old), she had them on her upper legs. My aunt had the sister to my dog and her dog had the cysts also, and in the same place that started to appear at the same time. My aunt works as a vet teck at a vet so she had them biopsied and they were not cancer or anything, just lumps of tissue. We were told that it's common for labs to have these. just a side note: we didn't do anything about the cysts and my dog lived a long (11years old) and healthy life. My aunts dog did seem to take the removal of the cysts well and she was sadly put down shortly after removing them. Just my experiance. I hope everything works out with your lab, they're great dogs.

    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
