For those of you that follow Floppycats on Facebook, then you know that Trigg had a dental on May 21 as well as had a mass removed from his neck. Luckily it turned out that the mass was just a benign cyst.
Here’s what the histopathology report said:
“The section of haired skin had a discrete encapsulated follicular cyst. The cyst wall was composed of stratified squamous epithelium with gradual keratinization towards the centers which contained numerous fragments of keratin. The mass had a thick capsule.”
Microscopic Findings: Follicular Cyst
“The mass appeared completely excised. Dogs and cats which develop follicular cysts frequently are predisposed to developing additional cysts at other sites over time.”
Total cost for dental and cyst removal – $525.20
Here’s a video I shot of Trigg shortly after he came home:
