Well my big brave boy has had his surgery and it is a lipoma. Paula showed it to me and it looked like a small brain with all the ridges etc.. weird. They checked to make sure it was not a mast cell hiding in there somewhere. He also had a light dental cleaning done as that was all he needed, brushing their teeth pays off! His blood work was perfect for an almost 10 yr old dog.. He has mostly been sleeping since I brought him home and this time NO swelling like the last time. Back in 5 days for a recheck and then sutures out in 14 days.. I sure feel better now that it is out!
Ok I need EVERYONE'S help who reads my blog. I have to decide which picture to submit for the Addison Dogs 2011 calendar.. These were taken this morning at Risser's Beach and yes Raider had a wonderful swim and run as well on the beach as well as posing for pictures. I needed a picture with his back to the water so we can merge a picture of him jumping threw the waves ( Gilda's idea ).. So tell me what picture you like best!!
Beach is slightly foggy and a smiling look to Raider
Paula thinks it is a lipoma but even with the needle biopsy she is not completely sure. I chose not to send it out to the lab. Fairly certain it is not mast cell though. But I have decided it is best to have it taken out and then have a sample sent to the lab. This one came up really quickly and considering the postion of this one ( he will be walking on it soon as it is in a bad spot on his foot ) I don't want to leave it get any bigger.. Surgery is on the 20th... Chauncy is turning out to be my lumpy bumpy boy....
Chauncy has another lump, this time on his other foot. It feels different so I am hoping it is not a return of the cancer. It is in a bad spot like the last one as well. It has been almost a year so I have my fingers crossed. We have a Vet appointment this morning at 10am.
