Wow, well THAT came from out of nowhere fast!! I have had a mole on my left side since before I moved in here. The vet said not to worry unless it started to grow. WELL a few days ago Daddy noticed it was growing, and then he showed Mommy. Mommy was worried, but not too much. She tried calling the vet on Tuesday, to have him look at it. The vet was busy, so Mommy called again yesterday. Today she finally got to talk to someone, and the vet said he would need to look at it to decide what next.
Mommy knew it would have to be removed. We went today to see if I would need to be put under or if he could do it with just local anesthesia would suffice. The vet looked at it, and then he disappeared to see if he could do it TODAY!! It was just 15 minutes before his office closed, AND he was short staffed. Mommy told him she would bring me back tomorrow, knowing how busy he was. He told her to hang tight and wait.
5 minutes later he was back in the room and told Mommy and Daddy that he wanted it taken off now and sent out to the lab for testing! He took me back to the procedure room, while Mommy and Daddy went to the lobby to wait. About 20 minutes later one of the girls brought me out to Mommy and Daddy. I am now wearing a retched E-collar and I have 3 staples in my left side!!
Mommy feels SO bad about this, since she didn't TELL me it was going to happen!! She said we were going for shots! Okay, so I did get my yearly shots while I was there, but STILL!! We left there sort of in a daze, and Mommy has to call tomorrow to find out when the test results will be back. It wasn't even on her mind when she saw the stapled shut hole on my side! All she could do was hold back the tears for me and hold me tight! Hey, I am a tough chick!! Ask the vet, he'll tell you I didn't even flinch during the whole thing! Oh well, I am gonna MILK this for all I can!! MOMMY!! I was a treat and then a nap!! See, she is at my every beck and call!!
I will keep you updated on the test results. For now though, I want to sleep....Mommy says I am drugged up....I say I am just milking the whole ordeal!! Our secret though, don't let Mommy know!! ;-)
