Wow! what a great thread! Last night I was looking for information on lipoma's as my 8 year old collie went in for surgery this morning for removal of a large lipoma on her chest. So glad I came across this thread, even though it is a few years old, it has provided me with so much helpful information. Thank you everyone who contributed to this, especially Pepper's mom. I just called my vet and Cookie's surgery was successful, no nerve damage thankfully. This was a concern as it looked like the lipoma may have extended to her armpit area. She has a drain in her for a few days, but is recuperating at the vets and I will bring her home later this afternoon.
So glad I found this thread as it really helped to ease my mind. Everyone who contributed on here were awesome!
