Older lab with fatty tumors
Hello! I have a ten year old lab who is just sweet as can be. The past year or two he has developed fatty tumors. The vets said this is very normal for labs and none of the tumors have contained any diseases or anything negative.

I worry about his pain level with them, though. He does not seem to be in visible pain but I can imagine those tumors must be a tad bit uncomfortable. Recently, he has developed a large one on his leg, which the vet said he will remove if it gets any better.

Anyway, is there anything I can do to make him feel better? I'm not sure if the tumors put him in dire pain or anything...but if there is even a small thing I can do to help him, I'd love to hear it.

Thank you!
