My Patchwork Dog

Fudgie is home and asleep at my feet.  He won't let me out of his sight. When Sara brought him to me in the exam room, he jumped right up into my arms.
He looks like a real patchwork dog tonight. All the lumps were on one side of his body. This is the one on his shoulder.
This  one is on his hip.
There is one on his tail and two on his chest that I haven't gotten a good look at yet.

This is the bad one. Dr B said it had almost doubled in size in just a week so it was good that we got it out of there. He took plenty of tissue surrounding it and is hoping that we got it early enough to not cause anymore problems.
Fudge had his teeth cleaned but the doctor didn't trim his gums back. He thinks we may be able to control the gum issue in other ways.

We also went over the blood reports on Bailey and Morgan from last week and had some surprises. With the exception of one liver enzyme which has gone up quite high, her report looked really good. The other liver values were completely normal for the first time in several years. The big surprise was that her thyroid level was so low it didn't even register. We're starting her on Soloxin in the morning and she may start acting a little more alert.

As for Bailey, her report was very good except for her thyroid. It was borderline, so she'll also start on Soloxin tomorrow. It explains both her inability to drop a few pounds and her lower than normal activity level. At leats thyroid is an easy fix and both my girls should feel better soon.

Now I need to go tuck Mr Fudge in for a nice long nap.

Good that he is home where we all know he will get the most loving care. Not sure where you get your soloxine, but we use Drs. Foster and Smith - $0.12 for a 0.7 mg tablet, pretty reasonable. If you spend $50, the shipping is free. Our vet writes a scrip for 450. Very good service too.
