Why do the cysts have to be removed? Pepper has one on her rear, it's been there for years. Periodically it gets big and drains, then goes back to being small. It's never bothered her and never caused any trouble. Although last time it did get infected after draining, but healed up within a couple days of treatment. If they don't bother her and aren't harming anything, I say leave them. And I hear you on the vets...at this point I rely on them for vaccines, blood work, etc. and the rest I am very cautious about. I do a lot of research before trusting them. I also say no a lot! Although I do have access to a couple very good ones here, and I'm very thankful for them!
