2010 blows.

Postby Libby » Mon Feb 15, 2010 9:52 pm

It hasn't been so much of a happy new year at my house so far.

First, discover Hoss has osteosarcoma.

About two weeks ago, found out Mexi has severe, severe arthritis in her right foreleg.

Last week, had Hoss back in the vet to have some spots checked out....he has what the vet called a 'waxy tumor' on his elbow, that we are watching closely. If it grows, then we worry. Oh, and he has mange.

Then today, I'm grooming Umah and I find this little black lump on her left hock. It is almost like a crater, it is black and then sunken in the center. It was bleeding very lightly. I shaved it and kind of felt around it, and it is hard and bleeds heavier with the lightest pressure.

So to the vet we go.

She has what the vet suspects is a mast cell tumor. Tomorrow she is having it removed and sent in to be tested.

I wont be around much. I will try to update as I find out information. Still waiting on results for Hoss's x-rays.

I'm so sorry :hug:

It seems like everyone's going through a little bit of a rough time right now, but I can't imagine what it's like going through what you're going through.

I'm praying for you and your pack.

Umah is doing ok now, she came through the surgery just fine. She has a hot pink wrapped leg, which she isn't so pleased about, but otherwise she doesn't act like anything is off. I'll get the results from the lab in a few days and I will update you guys.
