This news item is about: In March, Cindy Cousins brought her nine-year-old French bulldog, Beans, to her veterinarian for a routine dental cleaning. Concerned a growth on her lip could be malignant, her doctor excised it and sent it for biopsy. The results determined the lump to be melanoma, not uncommon in dogs but more often found in those who were light colored and more susceptible to sun exposure (Beans is brindle). Within weeks, Cousins noticed little, black lesions on Beans' skin that were multiplying almost daily. Her veterinarian referred her to the oncology department at Cornell University's Companion Animal Hospital. By the time they arrived at Cornell on April 4, there were 17 lesions total.
