Feline fibrosarcoma in the cheek: A surgical story
When 9-year-old Daphne came to me at Berks Animal Emergency & Referral Center for a mass in her left cheek, the biopsy results told the story cat owners least want to hear: Cancer, specifically, fibrosarcoma.
The surgery was tough, because there was so little skin to work with after the mass was removed. That’s why we used a “skin flap” in order to close the area.
The great news is that three weeks post-op, she is doing great.
Here’s to a full recovery, Daphne!
