On October 18, a seven year old female cocker spaniel was presented to the small animal clinic with a large swelling on the medial and caudal side of the right hind leg and right inguinal area. The dog had a history of being hit by an automobile approximately six months previously, but the owner did not observe any after effects following the accident. About two months ago the animal was being clipped and the swelling was noted on the caudal and medial side of the leg. No history was obtained as to whether the swelling had increased over the two month period before it was brought to the clinic.
