Piper's Health

We recently found a suspicious lump on Piper's side.  It didn't feel like one of those fatty tumors aging dogs sometimes get, but I hoped I was wrong. I waited to see if perhaps he had banged himself playing and maybe it was swelling that would subside, because he otherwise was acting perfectly fine.  Unfortunately it has not gone away.  This past weekend we were told by the vet that it didn't feel good and it should be surgically removed.  Tomorrow we go for a second opinion and to get some of my many many questions answered.  Our hopes right now are that either we find out it's not cancerous, or if it is, that it has not spread.  I will post updates when I have them.

  5. We will all cross our paws for you, Piper. Phantom has a very large mass on each of his sides that are supposed to be fatty tumors too. We hope you get a good report.
