naturespets A histiocytoma is a benign skin tumor that originates in the Langerhans cells, immune cells that function to provide protective immunity to the tissues that are in contact with the outer environment (the nose, stomach, intestines and lungs, but mainly the skin's surface.) Histiocytomas are common in dogs, with some breeds more common than others. These breeds include flat-coated retrievers, Bulldogs, American Pit Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers, Scottish Terriers, Greyhounds. boxers, dachshunds, cocker spaniels, Great Danes, and Shetland sheepdogs.
Symptoms
Small, firm, dome or button-shaped masses on the skin surface
Rare autoimmune blistering (dermoepithelial) masses, which may be ulcerated
Fast growing, nonpainful, usually solitary ( on it's own)
Common sites are the head, ear edges, and limbs, eyes and toes.

Diagnosis
You will need to give a thorough history of your dog's health and onset of symptoms, after which your veterinarian will perform a thorough physical exam. Definitive diagnosis is established via cytology or biopsy.
Most histiocytomas will regress within two or three months.

naturespets هل تساءلت لماذا بعض الكلاب والقطط يبدو أن لديها دائما التلون البني والتفريغ على فرائها تحت أعينهم؟
السؤال:
ما هو برأيك سبب ذلك، ولماذا بعض السلالات أكثر عرضة لذلك من غيرها؟
Have you ever wondered why some dogs and cats seem to always have brown coloration and discharge on their fur underneath their eyes?
Question:
What do you think is the cause of it and why some breeds are more prone to it than others?

naturespets The second dog was in for dental care and had a mass in the middle of his ear flap that was as big a ping pong ball. This is called Histiocytoma which is a type of Skin Tumor that is benign (not cancerous). Next post for more details 3d

naturespets Day 1:
Today was surgery day, the first surgery was a small male dog who came in to get neutered.

The procedure is very simple and safe and takes a few minutes. A small incesion is made leaving no scars behind.

He also had an extra baby tooth stuck with his adult tooth. This is referred to as RETAINED BABY TEETH. If they are not extracted, food and debris can be caught between the teeth, leading to early decay, tooth loss or gum disease.

If your dogs baby teeth do not fall off by the age of 7 months it should be surgically removed.
