Over many months the benign tumour on the underside of Wolfie’s chest grew to quite a size. Early on a fine needle aspirate had confirmed that this was a benign lipoma but because Wolfie, a Belgian Shepherd dog, was 11 years of age it was hoped that the growth would stabilise and surgery could be avoided. When the mass began to interfere with Wolfie’s comfort when lying down, surgery became necessary. As the surgical wound was large and in need of protection from the ground when he lay down, Wolfie was re-bandaged frequently and wore t-shirts for protection. Healing took almost six weeks but now he is fighting fit once more.
