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.

    • Hey you guys-you forget I'm an old Alaskan.  I know all I need to know about the dingbat and her famous family. If you are actually accepting her blather as useful intelligence and knowledge than you are as squirrely as she is. Let her just fade away for Pete's sake.
    • Hi Dave.  We have talked about this briefly a year or two ago.  Due to the paranoia factor on this site I and most others aren't here as much.  I do miss guys like you Dave.  I remember the pic of your camper at Itasca so we took a drive through this summer.   I wondered where your spot was.  Man I hope you come out of this alright Dave.  My Uncle had diabetes bad and finally lost the battle.  The docs said change your diet or take the shot.  He said give me the shots.  Well that lasted for many years and his body finally gave in..  He should have changed his diet too.  I took him to a couple of bear baits he wanted to see and he told me his feet were finally giving in.  AND he was a tough guy.   Anyway Dave we all love you and I hope you can persevere....   I am thinking good things for you so you think positive too.....    Barry.    Hope this isn't deleted for one of their paranoid reasons...  If it is deleted I will never be back as many others.   So sad.....
    • It is interesting how people got out so early.  I have done it too.  3 or 4 hits with the spud and it is alright.......  NO it isn't ....  It is manly to talk about getting on the ice first.  Well now that I am older I realize it is stupid talk not manly.  The fishing sales world is just as guilty.  They talk about the first ice fishing being so good.  They actually are hugely responsible for getting stupid people out on thin ice.  The lets make a buck is more important than anything.  ANYTHING!!! 
    • Great pictures.   I'm used to seeing eagles, but those pictures are outstanding. 
    • Didn't I just do that?   Can't you read? 
    • Only if they have a drinking problem and maybe me implants.  That's all the Canadian folks care about....
    • That sounds like a great idea. 
    • I know perfectly well how phishing works.   Typical Liberal thinks anyone who is not toeing the party line is ignorant.    It isn't that hard to phish a fool like podesta.
    • I feel like we were just water skiing not to long ago!  Definitely caught a sun burn for deer season ha.  I'll be doing my fishing at the grocery store for a bit yet.
    • Remember, your fishing for pickerel!!  No such thing as walleye where your fishing
