Yep, they grow really fast and we are getting them tested, but the vet is pretty sure they are benign. She had three of them.

Aww! :( Poor thing; it's good you got them removed though. Hope she feels better soon!

Success comes a [bit] at a time.

Yeah, she actually kicked herself while coming out of the anesthesia and had to get stitches on her elbow as well. Poor Nani, but she seems to be feeling much better after getting the tumors out and she gets some time off, which she is enjoying.

Wow, poor baby! I hope she makes a speedy recovery and enjoys her time off!

But it is really interesting to see. Thanks for sharing.

I thought so too the vet actually asked us if we wanted to keep them... we declined, but it's really interesting to see.

oh nice one, glad you could get them removed. How old was she?
My friend has an appaloosa that was 17 years old and had some tumours underneath his chest and the vet said she couldnt opporate, not because of his age, to be honest she never really told us why she just said that she had to put her down so I think it might have been cancer. Poor menace he was a stunner of a horse.

Just glad you could get yours removed, let us know how she's going :)
