A two (02) years old male non-descriptive dog was presented with the history of progressively enlarging massive mass on the distal portion of the right hind limb. On physical examination the palpable mass was found semisolid type, but there was no pain at the affected site and no evidence of visible lameness. Lateral radiograph of right hind limb was advised and no attachment of the growth with the underlying bone was found on radiograph. Routine blood parameters were within the normal range

Excised mass was subjected to histopathological examination that revealed polyhedral closely packed neoplastic cells with vacuolated cytoplasm and flattened nuclei placed peripherally which confirmed the excised growth as lipoma. Present communication describes about the confirmatory diagnosis of lipoma and its uneventful surgical recovery in a dog.
