The vet called today with the results for Loki’s biopsy for the bump on his snout.  It is a histiocytoma, which is totally benign, and generally resolves on its own in 2-3 months.  Of course Loki’s whole tumor was removed during the biopsy, so his is a matter or recovering from that.  He has one stitch.

There is no link whatsoever to histiocytomas and malignant histiocytosis, a a very fast and very fatal cancer very common to Bernese Mountain Dogs. 

So it is a happy day here!



  1. That is great news!
