In 2006, a 12-year-old Kelpie-cross named Patch made headlines in Sydney, Australia, for being the first Australian dog to undergo liposuction. Patch had several lipomas, one of which, on his hind paw, was threatening to paralyze him within a few months. Remembering a European veterinarian who performed liposuction on a dog using the suction tool normally used to clean fluids during surgery, an Australian veterinarian suggested to try this approach on Patch.
The patient had painful shoulder movement that could have been attributed to rotator cuff and acromioclavicular joint disease. However, magnetic resonance imaging and electromyography were compatible with trapping of the suprascapular nerve. The treatment of rotator cuff disease and excision of the lipoma led to the resolution of the patient's symptoms. This case is presented as an unusual cause of suprascapular nerve entrapment with a review of its course and anatomy.

But in May 2012, Ling Ling lost weight while its tumor grew. "It has increased so much," says Dr. Mobley, "that it seemed to have disrupted his own blood supply. There was an unpleasant bulge that seemed to die and rot. Not so good. She had 90 minutes of surgery as a champion. The tumor was so big that it was like delivering a baby. He weighed three pounds and was as big as his head. Because the mass had disturbedThe muscles of Ling Ling's shoulder were tied up, added Dr. Mobley. She made a complete recovery.
Utero and postnatal follow-up images (case 3). B, image obtained at birth. Sagittal image spin-echo turbo T1 (350/16/1) confirming the presence of lipoma and the agenesis of the corpus callosum. C, image obtained at birth. Front view turbo spin-shot image in T1 (350/16/1) shows the lateral extension of the lipoma. D, image obtained at the age of 3 years. Sagittal medial spin-echocardiogram weighted T1 (450/15/1) shows the growth of lipoma. E, image obtained at the age of 3 years. Similar results are revealed by the weighted sequence in T1 turbo spin-etch T1 (450/15/1). A mid-sagittal view Spin-echo weighted T1 sequence (400/17/1) shows a typical lipoma and an incomplete corpus callosum.
Classically trained homoeopaths such as Dr. Herman use unique remedies (not combinations) in response to the specific symptoms of their patients. "The correct cure is the one that fits the patient's overall picture," says Dr. Herman. "Lipomas are part of the chronic disease picture, not single entities." In 2004, Dr. Herman treated Anna, a one-year-old Golden Retriever, for muscle myositis. masticatory, an inflammatory muscular disease that causes pain incapacitated to open the jaw.
