Exotic pets and a smattering of other things I deem interesting.

Photo with 24 notes

This is a photomicrograph  of cells taken from a red, raised nodule on the top of a dog’s head. There is a basophilic background and several greyish looking cells that are red blood cells. A single neutrophil is located in the  left hand side. Just to the right of the neutrophil is the nuclear remnants of a cell that popped, probably from too much pressure when I made the slide.  The round purple cells are histiocytes which are a type of dendritic cell, that makes this mass a histiocytoma which is a benign type of tumor that usually goes away on its own.
