A 2-year-old 28-kg castrated male Australian Shepherd that was adopted from California at 8 weeks of age and traveled across the southwestern and southern US was referred for follow-up care and management after removal of a hard testicular mass (approx 2.5 to 5 mm in diameter) and castration by the primary veterinarian. The mass had been present for about 2 to 3 weeks prior to surgery, and purulent discharge during surgery was noted. In addition to surgery, the primary veterinarian performed a fecal examination, which revealed no evidence of parasitism. Monthly heartworm and flea and tick preventatives were prescribed.
