Katya was examined by one of our vets at our Llanelli branch after her owners noticed that she had developed abdominal swellings.

After performing a fine needle aspirate, it was discovered that the swellings were rapid growths of mammary tissues.

This condition is called mammary hyperplasia, a process that can be caused by the progesterone hormones and normally occurs in young, unspayed female cats.

After a course of antibiotics and neutering, Katya’s lumps have improved.

It is always important to monitor your pets for any lumps that might appear, especially in the mammary region with unneutered pets.
