Well Thursday July 29 th Chauncy had a small tumor removed from his right hind hock and it was sent off to find out what it was. It was a bit swollen when we left the clinic at 3pm but the tech said just to snip the white tape near the bottom. Well this is what it looked like only 3 hrs later.. Needless to say I called the vet twice and finally back in we went and used warm towels and massaged the fluid out and home we go.
Zonked out on morphine ( thankfully ) and notice the swelling again only 1.5 hr after we had massaged it to normal..
This is his foot less than 12 hrs after being at the vets and I spent the whole night spending 20 minutes every hr massaging it. Back to the vet this am and it looks like he has had a histamine reaction to the tumour removal, between his toes and around the incision looked like raw oozing meat and its only 24 hr post surgery. My Vet figures we are looking at a Mast cell tumour so now we just wait for the results. So more drugs to combat infection and benadryl for the histamine reaction..But I have a bad feeling about this and so does she.
