Hello all bloggers, would like to share with you that Alfie has unfortunately developed a small (about the size of a penny) 'spot/cyst' on his chest - in his little white diamond, which the Vets have recommended we have removed, wasn't prepared for this on the visit to the Vets but trusting my Vet (of 16 years) I agreed. Am very worried and would like to hear if anyone has had any similar experiences. Have attached my favourite photo of Alfie enjoying his raw hide chewie. Best wishes Jannine'
Jannine hopefully it is just a sebaceous cyst. Lots of bedlingtons develop these as they get older, they are usually quite harmless. Chelsea has had two operations to remove several cysts of various sizes.
