Harper the greyhound needs reconstructive surgery of… the lip

Harper, a 7-year-old greyhound, had a fleshy mass the size of a silver dollar inside her right upper lip. The mass (which came back as a mast cell tumor) was removed and the lip was reconstructed. Her owner GK writes:

“Hello Dr. Zeltzman, We wanted to share with you how happy we are with the outcome from Harper’s surgery. She looks absolutely fantastic with her scar only being approximately 1/2 inch long. The healing process was a little rough in the beginning but with all the excellent instructions we were given we knew what to expect. But overall it seemed to be a quick process and Harper is as good as new and back to her silly greyhound antics. 
Thank you for taking such excellent care of our girl.”
