Lump on my dogs teat

We recently saw Poppy the Yorshire terrier who visited us with lumps near her teats, Poppy had a mammectomy.


Lumps found in the region of a dogs teats is usually a benign or malignant tumors of the mammary glands. They occure more often in female dogs that aren’t spayed  and another risk factor for development of mammary tumors is obesity. In fact, mammary gland tumors are the most common type of tumor diagnosed in entire female dogs.

The mammary glands' function is to produce milk to feed newborn puppies. They are located in two rows that extend from the chest to the lower abdominal area; the nipples indicate their location. Spaying can largely reduce a dog’s risk of developing these tumours,


Surgery is an essential treatment for mammary tumors. Generally, one or more mammary gland is removed. If a tumor is found in multiple mammary glands, removal of the entire mammary chain may be recommended. The tumor and a large zone (2 to 3 cm) of surrounding normal skin, fat and sometimes muscle are removed to reduce the risk of local tumor recurrence. If the tumor is located in fourth and fifth mammary glands, skin flaps from the both flank folds may be needed to reconstruct the large wound following removal of the tumor.
