Rosie's story... the whippet with a 600gm lump

If you live in North Fitzroy you may have noticed Rosie the 14 year old Whippet with a large lump on her side. Recently Rosie had this lump removed at our practice.

Rosie’s lump had been present for many years and although it was large, it did not bother her. A short time ago however, the lump began enlarging and causing some discomfort.

Even though Rosie has a heart condition, a decision was made to perform surgery and remove the lump.

The 1 ½ hour long procedure was successful, with Dr. Samantha removing a 600g lump – quite large considering Rosie only weighs 7kg!
