Fatty tumors in my dog

I have a 13 year old mixed breed dog. She is all muscle and weighs about 90 pounds.Tasha developed two tumors, one in the right side of her neck and one in her lower left side around her waist area,about a year ago. Both were aspirated and neither is cancerous. She eats well, there has been no weight change, we walk twice per day. My vet doesn’t want to operate unless they change — is there any way to help her body reabsorb these masses? She eats Orijen dry dog food with raw beef, or sardines/mackerel or eggs etc., added to it for a change of pace. Any advice you give would be greatly appreciated.


Answer from Dr. Gaylord Brown:
There are no treatments that will cause absorption of fatty tumors. Though benign, if these grow or change in character they should be removed.
