Liver Tumors in Older Dogs
There is usually no treatment required for hepatic nodular hyperplasia. In cases of rupture of large nodules, blood transfusion and emergency mass lesion excision (removal) may be necessary to stabilize your pet.
Living and Management
Your veterinarian will want to perform quarterly biochemical profiles, along with abdominal ultrasonography, to evaluate progression of hepatic nodules, and to head off any subsequent complications that may result from nodular formations impeding the normal functioning of the liver.
