My american bulldog had surgery yesterday. He had a growth on his tail that is called histiocytoma. Does anyone know what the cause of these tumors are and if they will return? Tyson is very young to have health problems like these. He is only 18 months old. Also, Are these tumors caused by his immune system? Any information would be greatly appreciated.View Thread
I took tyson my american bulldog to the vet today about the growth on his tail. They told me that it is a Histiocytoma. He is scheduled for surgery to remove it on Friday. Is there any other treatment for this type of growth? Or is surgery the only cure for it? Also does this type of growth keep returning?View Thread
