So this morning Mom called the vet rushed me in and the vet looked at me and said "He needs stitches for sure." So I am now the proud owner of some stitches, he did a local on me so I am not to drowsy thankfully. Hopefully I can get them removed in two and half weeks and not my regular six weeks.
Good news or sorta good news is he doesn't think my back legs are swelling due to cancer he thinks it is a breed thing and used a really big word that pretty much means swollen hocks.
Bad news is he is concerned about my front leg where he removed the mass cell because, it is too large in his opinion. Without removing the leg it will always be like that and he is 98% sure I still have some of the mass cell in that leg and part of my chest. He also said I have to have eye surgery beginning of next year, because my eye lids are upsetting my eyes. I was really confused when he said that but, Mom and Dad understood so that is all that matters.
For the next two and half weeks I will be going to work with Mom because, she can't leave me with Missy unattended. Missy is big on smacking me with her feet so better safe then sorry Mom says.
Was the big word Amyloidosis? Mom's first Pei had that also. Another name is "Shar Pei Fever". And the eyelids messing with your eyes is called entropian where the lashes curve into your eyes and scratch them every time you blink. I've got some of that, but didn't know for a fact until april. Its not real noticable on me like it is on some Pei.
P.S. Hope you feel better soon. :o)
You got it right Austin on both accounts! I don't get the eye thing personally because, when I was a little guy they tacked my eyes so wouldn't that stop it? I know I can't be that wrinkly. It's fairly noticeable on one of my eyes, I am constantly squinting. I was told not to worry about the Amyloidosis it's just a breed thing and you can't really do much for it just anti-inflammatory.
aww...I sure hope that you feel better soon, my Grampy had a black lab that's eye lashes did the same thing...
