What to Expect with Mass Removal
During your initial visit to Pet Method, Dr. Finn will perform a thorough exam to assess the size and placement of the mass. Usually, a biopsy is done by taking a sample of tissue in order to discover whether it is cancerous or benign. It's worth noting that not all tumors require removal. Dr. Finn will discuss all of your options and inform you of any risks to help you make an informed decision regarding your pet. If lump removal surgery is necessary, your pet will be placed under general anesthesia. The procedure itself is fairly simple. Dr. Finn will create an incision in the selected area, followed by extracting the mass and then closing the area with sutures. After the procedure, detailed follow-up instructions will be provided by our staff to ensure proper healing.
Pet Method Reviews
Dr. Finn and his team are the best! I had taken my dog to four other vets before all of which prescribed pain medication and said it wasn’t emergent when she was having trouble walking and unable to eat. I took my dog to Pet Method where Dr. Finn did blood work, X-rays and an ultrasound she was found to be in CKD and needed to be emergently admitted for aggressive treatment. My baby would have died if it wasn’t for him & his team
Dr. Finn and staff are amazing! Kaitlyn is great and Sara is awesome. Love Dr. Finn's fear free approach and appreciate the insight he provides. Highly recommend bringing your pet(s) in!
Dr.Finn was great with my dogs. One has severe anxiety and Dr.Finn was extremely patient and caring. 10/10 reccomend Pet Method.
My dogs absolutely love Pet Method. We used to take them to another pet hospital and they would always end up being terrified after the exam. For example, our older dog, Henry, would cower under the chairs after getting his shot or his nails clipped. At Pet Method, they took their time to make sure he was comfy and gave him lots of treats while also clipping his nails in a quick and neat manner. He ended up snoring afterwards in his exam room! We live in Garland and are gladly driving up to this place because we know that our pets would get the best treatment from Dr. Finn and his staffs. 10/10 would definitely recommend them to anyone who's looking for a vet who truly cares about their pets!

Mass Removal FAQs
What causes a lump or bump in pets?
There are several reasons why your pet may have a mass (or lump). These can include an abscess or infection, a growth (cyst), a foreign object in the body (granuloma), or a tumor.
If my pet has a mass, does that mean they have cancer?
Not necessarily. Many masses, bumps, and lumps your fur buddy may have are benign, or harmless. However, sometimes it can be a cancerous tumor. That’s why Pet Method provides diagnostic testing to determine the cause of your pet’s mass so you can give your best friend the treatment they need to stay healthy and happy.
Do all masses need to be removed?
Not always. Dr. Finn will perform an exam and biopsy to determine if your pet’s lump needs to be removed or if other treatment options would be better for their health.
Will having a mass removed from my pet hurt them?
No, it won’t. Dr. Finn performs all mass removals with general anesthesia, meaning your little (or big) guy will be completely asleep and feel no pain. During the recovery period, they may have some soreness and tenderness, but this is normal, and there are options to help keep them comfortable as they heal.
