A quick update

He’ll be okay

Just so’s y’all know. I mentioned that Poptart has a lump on his side and we took him to the vet for his annual check up. The vet did a biopsy of the lump and it’s a fatty tumor. Not malignant at all. No cancer. He said we can just keep an eye on it if we want to, but it’s probably best to remove it now before it gets any bigger. It’ll probably cost about $500 altogether. Poptart still has a few more years left in him — he’s ten I think — so we’ll probably get that taken care of. Just thought y’all would like to know in case you were worried about the little guy.

    Glad to hear it’s a ‘common’ fatty tumor (to which Chihuahuas are prone). Is he in any discomfort (is it impeding his ability to walk or anything?) If not, and depending on the depth of your pockets, you can probably wait til you are ready to do it. I’m sure Poptart isn’t going to mind..

      It’s right behind his right leg and it is growing. We figure it’s better to get it now before it gets too big and costs more to remove it.
