Has your dog ever been missing for hours on end without explanation, just to mysteriously appear in the house and he can't remember where he's been? If so, this is a classic case of alien abduction.

Its not uncommon for labs to grow growths in their later years, its dangerous to remove them because blood vessels grow into them.

Fatty tumor. Common in Labradors.

I take it you're not in the U.S. Operating on animals by anyone but a licensed veterinarian, is highly illegal.

I hope she's got the dog on some sort of adequate pain management. Chrissakes

Actually, my friend's dog disappeared for almost 4 months and then re-appeared at her doorstep one night. She said he was a different dog in terms of personality. I imagine it must be weird to have a dog that looks the same as your original dog but acts completely different.

I didn't think she'd ever do something on her own like that. But she did.

I visited my mom and her dog the last 3 days and the dog seems to be just like normal. Nothing has changed. I'm going to bring him to the vet in the next couple days. I want him to be on antibiotics just in case.

...Actually, legal in (most? all?) US states. The owner (or designated employee of the owner) can practice veterinary medicine on their OWN animals, just illegal to advertise as a vet and/or practice on other people's animals. This allows livestock owners and animal breeders to take care of health issues they're comfortable handling, without being jailed.

Admittedly, the owner could still get hauled up on cruelty charges - depending on how everything was handled during and after surgery/care.

Re: Strange Growth Excised from My Mother's Dog

could be a fatty tumor. it should be biopsied to check for cancer, now that it has been removed. she also has to make sure the dog doesn't get an infection in the wound
