A nine-year-old intact male Spitz dog was brought to the Veterinary Clinical Complex, Veterinary College and Research Institute, Tirunelveli, with a history of swelling in the left caudal thoracic mammary gland over the last six months which slowly increased in size. Physical examination revealed the presence of a painless, fatty-soft elongated mass about 19x10 cm. On clinical examination, all vital parameters were under normal range. On fine needle aspiration cytology, the case was diagnosed as lipid-rich carcinoma. Pre-operative haemato-biochemistry values were under normal range and thoracic radiograph showed no metastasis. The excised mass was analyzed by gross, cytology and histopathology. Post-operative follow-up was done for 8 months and the owner reported that the animal died after 8 months post-surgery.
