    My dog has fibroadnexal dysplasia on lip

    Hello everyone. New to the forum and need your help. I have a beautiful 4 year old Weimeraner male. He has developed fibroadnexal dysplasia on the lip/side of his mouth. It's kind of large and thick and a biopsy has shown that it is NOT malignant. If you have had this on your dog can you tell me what you did to mitigate or remove it. Our Vet wants to perform surgery to remove the complete side of his mouth and stitch the area with extra mouth skin. Doing this will make his mouth much tighter and could pull his nose off to one side. Not good. The wife is pushing for surgery and I'm not. Not sure what to do :( Blu1.jpg Blu2.jpg

    I had never heard of this but a quick google search suggests that various forms of this disease are not uncommon. If you are in doubt about the best way forward, you could ask your vet to refer you to a specialist for a second opinion.
    I am so sorry for your boy, sometimes these non malignant conditions can be just as difficult to deal with as a true cancer. My 12 year old Beagle boy has just had his fourth operation to remove bowel tumours - they may be non malignant but that doesn't stop them from growing and causing problems! Best wishes for a successful outcome.

    Thanks for the reply. We've already been to a specialist who suggested the radical approach. I'm so torn over this :(
