Treatment: Imaging and Surgery
Comments: Louie, an 8 1/2 year old Labrador, was presented with a grapefruit size mass under his neck.
Follow Up Care: We cat scanned him within the hour of his visit. The cat scan showed no other involvement elsewhere in the body. The mass was very involved with the trachea and the carotid artery. The next step for Louie was surgical removal. He returned 2 days, later and it was removed.
Updates: Louie is 6 hours out of surgery and doing well. He will be able to go home tonight. We will follow up with Louie in a few days to see how the recovery is progressing.
