I had a health scare over the weekend. I was licking my paw a bunch Sunday morning and when my people checked it, they found a big lump that had a lumpy top on it. The lump hadn't been there a few days before. It had started to bleed a little so they put me in the car at 7 am and took me to the e-vet.
The e-vet said it looked like a histiocytoma which she said is a tumor that is usually benign. My woman looked them up and chatted with some people who have had experience with these and found out they could do some nasty things.
We waited for Tuesday to come so I could go to the vet clinic. By that time my lump had become a wound and it turned out to be an abscess from when I got poked by the spruce needle a couple of weeks before.
It's healing up pretty good but I don't like having to get my paw wiped with the stuff the vet clinic gave us or having to take those huge antibiotics twice a day!
