Thread: Hooch has a lump

  1. #21

    'bunny-girl' - how is Hooch this morning ?

    I can't really add very much to what has already been posted above - particularly from what '
    mymatejack' has said.

    By the look of the size of the operation site - it looks like your vet is on the ball and excised the whole lump plus allowed for a very clear margin around the lump site. This is very important when looking at these types of things.

    Try and not worry too much - but in saying that - we do worry about our pups who we dearly love and wish to protect.

    Heaps and Heaps of Good Luck Wishes and
    for you and Hooch !

    Hooch is such a handsome man!!!

    Try not to worry too much BG, a lump with blood supply can mean a lot of things but the fact it was pussy is a good thing! If you have any questions about feeding him or him sleeping on the drain, I'm sure your vet will be more than happy to answer them

    Please give than gorgeous boy a hug and kiss for me and let us know how he gets along!

    thank you everyone. funny how all the questions/problems/concerned rise at midnight... comes morning everything seems just that little bit brighter.
    what a sleepless long night that has been. he was in so much pain he was climbing on me, so we ended up giving him the painkillers the vet prescribed (he told us to start with them today), took him to my bed.. drain and all and that did the trick.
    his appetite is sky rocketing, he went out for a wee wagging his tail, we got him the everlasting fire plug https://www.worldforpets.com.au/products/14955 so he is on his bed now chewing it with all his might.
    i hate waiting for the results, not knowing. i cant help thinking the worst.. preparing myself. he is such a good innocent pure soul, i hope the universe gives him a break.

    its not cancer.
    results are back.. it was inflammation due to possible trauma.
    he is going to live and he will be ok and we dont have to lose our hooch, the best dog anyone could ever have.
    i would like to thank you all for the support, it means so much!

    I was avoiding this thread but breathed a great sigh of relief when the vet said pussy. Cancerous nodes are not pussy. I was dreading you being told Lymphoma. No way in hell would I put my dogs through chemo. Been there done that myself. Such great news!

    I dont think I have cried so much in my whole life as I cried in those last 3 days.
    My poor baby is all stitched up and it was only a bump/trauma.. I feel guilty for doing it to him but the vet recommended and I was so worried because the lump grew so quickly and changed texture. We have been spoiling him rotten trying to make up for what he had to go through.
    I am so sorry Di_dee1 that it brought back bad memories, I hope neither one of us ever has to experience this again.

    Great news bunny-girl!!!!

    Don't stress about putting him through a minor procedure like that, dogs are tough, especially bully breeds. A few days and he'll have forgotten all about it and will tearing up your house ......

    BG, it doesn't bring back bad memories, I am in remission and also on a cancer forum to help others. I learned so much and my perception of life and the situations it can throw at us changed...for the better too. I no longer sweat the small stuff, If I can't change a situation I change how I deal with it, what is important in life and what really isn't. Kind of grateful to have it all tidied up like that, lol.

    I was dreading reading that Hooch's lump would turn out to be lymphoma. Doing the happy dance for you both!
