Harvey - Found a growth
Taking baby Misty to vets this afternoon for her last vacc. They split second one in two as she had such adverse reaction to first one - temperature of 106! plus the Vets changed manufacturer / supplier

Just before weekend, checking Harvey over discovered growth on his chest near to his arm pit. I really dont think its much as its on the skin probably more wart like however not taking any chances & fitted him in this afternoon with Misty at the Vets

Wish us luck please folks

Re: Harvey - Found a growth
All went well with surgery, Harvey got the growth removed, a skin tag off his elbow & an area under his chin cleaned up where he had scratched it raw. (allergies). Home with painkillers & antibiotics. His wound has about 12 stitches so bigger than I envisaged it would be

They sent him home complete with a plastic buster collar & I can honestly say I have never in my life seen an animal so terrified or stressed by one of those collars. He was shaking, panting, drooling with occasional high pitched whimpers. Rightly or wrongly it came off. He was swaying on his feet & wouldn't sit or lie down for ages. Poor pupster had obviously found the whole thing very traumatic.

I went to bed early, he was quite happily stretched right across the bed - nope not comfy for me!!!! Timmy & Mindy curled up tightly against him & Misty kitten kept coming up, gently inspected his face & then washed it. Amber uncharacterisically (sp?) for her kept popping in to the room, getting onto the bed & staying for a while watching Harvey. It shows, i think, how close a bond different animal species can form (Perhaps he was a cat in a previous life)

The tumour has been sent off for biopsy. I think this will be one of those very rare occasions I put in an insurance claim!

Re: Harvey - Found a growth
Hope the biopsy turns out well.I know what you mean about those collars.Brody HATED it!I did too!He tore it up,etc,but had to have it as he woulnd't leave his stitches alone.He had only one testicle that descended and vet had to search for the other.So,he had ALOT of stitches.
Why they dont have see-through(clear)collars available in this town is beyond me.
Quite tramatic for all.
Hope your baby is all better soon!

Glad it all went well, poor Harvey with his collar!

The swaying and drooling etc could have been the anaethestic wearing off still, my girls have both been a bit woozy when they came home and unsteady on their feet.

Hope he feels better soon and fingers crossed the results for the lump come back clear x
