My dog has a new mole on his belly?

Postby tremaine20 » Thu Jan 17, 2013 1:21 am

My 7 year old Male German shepherd dog has a black mole on his belly, it never used to be there also it's risen, he was fine with me touching it, but should I be worried? What could it be?

You should be extremely worried as it is probably a melanoma. Get into your vet as soon as possible. Some melanomas can be surgically removed but many have already metastisied.
I just had my Sheltie in for surgery for a black mole that luckily was stage 2 and hopefully they got it all. Cancer is rampant in many dogs and the sooner you get it diagnosed the better the outcome.
