Poor Cookie - now her leg is swollen

Postby littleCloClo » Sat Apr 23, 2011 9:00 pm

I noticed this morning that she had a bit of trouble getting up, but figured it was due to the lymphoma, since she has a lot of enlarged nodes. Then a bit later I was petting her and thought she seemed a bit warm; we went outside a little later, and I noticed her right rear leg is swollen, the whole thing, but there doesn't seem to be any trauma. Is this normal, with the lymphoma? I'm guessing it's some kind of secondary infection. We'll be taking her in, but I don't know if we'll be taking her home. Poor baby. :(

Good thoughts and prayers for Cookies :pray I don't know what caused this, but I sure love your baby.

When are you taking her to the vet? I will be thinking of her.

I'm not an expert, but we didn't experience any swelling with our lymphoma boy other than his nodes. I hope she's feeling better soon.

We are fairly sure that we are going to put her down tomorrow. The lymph nodes are so enlarged that she is having trouble pooping. We'll see what the the doctor says, but she must miserable. :(
