This afternoon Fudge and Sebastian visited Dr B. Fudge has a nickel size lump on his chest and I wanted it checked out.
The doctor did a needle biopsy and we had good news. It's a fatty tumor and isn't a problem except that it's located over his breastbone where it can become tender when he lies on a hard surface. I'll make sure he has a soft bed to sleep on and that should resolve the problem.
On Monday Sebastian will go back into surgery and the doctor will attempt to follow the path of the drainage and remove whatever is causing the area to bother Sebastian. We don't know what exactly we're looking for or where exactly it is, but we need to provide some relief to this poor dog.
Speaking of dog bites, please go visit our friend Gretchen who was attacked by another dog earlier this week. She had emergency surgery last night and isn't feeling great today.
