Hemangiosarcoma (was Wart Looking Growth)

Mya (my 9 1/2 year old) has what looks like a wart on her thigh. I researched and that was the closest thing it resembled...having that cauliflower appearance to it. I only noticed it today as Mya was chewing at it and I noticed a bloody area on her fur.

Of course I am very upset...as everything I am reading said warts are usually in young dogs and in the mouth/face area...and that in older dogs...in other areas there is a high chance it is something else.

Can anyone think it anything else it might be...something that also resembles a wart? Praying it's something as simple as that....

I will be calling in the morning to get her seen at once....

Re: Wart looking growth

it could be a small cyst like growth (can't remember the name) that GSDs are known to get...my dog had one for many years and now it is smaller but still there. The vet checks it and says they are common in the breed. Please take her to the vet and get it checked out.

Re: Wart looking growth

Can you take a picture of it?

One of our Beardies used to get this fat pocket thing on her foot all the time. It looked like a wart, but kind've had a "x" on the top to make it look like it was four parts grown together. Hard to explain. Anyway, it was harmless and we'd wrap it when she would get it. A couple got gross enough that the vet removed them.

(confession: I did put Neosporin on one and wrapped it with gauze and it went away on its own in about a week, but I dont believe Neosporin is an approved dog first aid item, so I dont recommend it and I would not use it now that I know better)

Re: Wart looking growth

It's not a fatty tumor or cyst (she gets those too)...this is really weird...definitely looks like a wart..it's kinda raw (probably from chewing) and cauliflowery...

I'll take a pic...

Re: Wart looking growth

My border/golden x got these when she was 13. One was on her eyelid and two on her muzzle area. Onyx was a pup and her sharp teeth would break them open when she played with Clover. We had them surgically removed, and they did not return. Clovers were just growths, not warts and cauliflower like as well, about the size of a dime. I wouldn't have removed them, had it not been for location. Due to her age, the sedation was scary and she had a heart murmer, so I was really nervous about her being put under antesthesia. Came out of it fine, and she healed great!

Re: Wart looking growth

I've used product on my dog's warts and cysts for years.

Make sure the vet says it's a wart, though.

Put this stuff on a couple times a da for a few days. The wart will turn black and fall off very quickly.

Re: Wart looking growth

sometimes dogs will have cyst(sp) type growths (that can be expressed) almost pimple like. two of my dogs have had this. If you have never seen it before on your animal I'd have it checked but a vet.

Re: Wart looking growth

Unfortunately...Mya's appt did not go so well..

the Dr. was very concerned with the appearance and location of her mass...and has done a biopsy...so please say some prayers. The mass is hard and red.


as far as her nose...(as far as her nose...it's flakey and has a sore)..it's probably an autoimmune disease...which she would like to send me to a dermatologist to biopsy and diagnose. Of course...with most of the diagnoses...comes treatment with steroids which opens a whole new can of worms. I'm not sure if I want to go there...will need to research and cross that bridge when I come to it. For now...this is going on the back burner and I have decided to treat ultra conservatively....just applying an antibiotic creme.

My main concern right now is her mass.
