A 6 year old male pug breed of dog was presented to Eden pets care with a history of bleeding from a nodule present on the skin. The owner also informed that it has started as a wart like structure on the skin which was soft and fluctuating which has remained in the same size for 2 years. Increase in size of the nodule was seen for past two weeks. Clinical examination of the pet showed a 0.7cm diameter nodule on the skin on the cranial aspect of right forelimb at the time of presentation. No pain was evinced on palpation. Cytological evaluation of fine needle aspiration was suggestive of mast cell tumour. This article outlines the cytological findings and the treatment adopted in this case.
