Case 3, Answer 7b


Correct. Surgical removal of the affected gland is often curative. Most dogs will only have one enlarged gland, and the other three will be atrophied. Remember to always send the tissue in for histopathologic examination as there is a chance the mass may be a carcinoma. The patient will require close postoperative monitoring of hypocalcemia because the contralateral glands are often atrophied and not functioning properly.
