Light Skin + Sun = Tumors
Scarlet is 19 years old and gets cancerous tumors around exposed skin areas (area above eye once-years ago, and currently, her vulva) during the summer. This is nothing new and I acquired her with this condition. In the winter they are non-existent but summer time brings more sun, more turn out time and longer days so this summer she developed a small culliflower type tumor on her vulva. The vet is coming Wednesday to remove it, but said if I knew the type of tumor (cancer) then a biopsy wouldn't be needed.
I had this information, SOMEWHERE, but lost it in a move. Anyone else have a pink skinned horse that has this sun issue (skin cancer)?
