It turns out his diagnosis is rare.

It is a form of neoplasm but is probably not a cancer. Their best guess is it was originally an infection that the bacteria was secreting an anti platelet factor, and when he cleared the infection the body over-responded and created a vascular bundle.

The pathologist confirmed that with the damage to the muscle, cartilage and bone around the forepaw the correct treatment was amputation as he would have been lame with a simple resection.
