Meet Tama the rat

At Murrumba Downs Vet we aren't all about just dogs and cats! Fur, Scales or Feathers we love them all! Meet Tama the rat. He visited our clinic after his family noticed a lump growing rapidly on his abdomen.

After a check-up and FNA (fine needle aspiration) of the lump it was thankfully diagnosed as only being a benign tumour. As the lump was growing in size quickly and was already 20mm in diameter Dr Liam decided it was best to surgically remove it and keep Tama comfortable.

Surgery went smoothly and Tama woke up happy and comfortable (and a little lighter) and went home to his family that night.
