My beloved Marsha (15 year old Yorkshire Terrier) seems to be suffering. I know for a fact she has lost much of her hearing and I'm pretty sure she's got cataracts as she's having problems navigating around the house she's lived in for 8 of her 15 years. Her problem...she's got a rather large lump on her head. It's dark and firm to the touch. It's not rock hard though, more like a ripe peach. Not only that, she's grown these pink wart-like things in many places. Does anyone know what this is? Today she can't move. I pick her up and she's just like a rag doll. She's limp and unwilling to do anything but breath. I'm taking her to the vet as soon as they're open. I love her so much and am afraid the Vet's going to tell me something I don't want to hear. Does anyone know what I could be dealing with?
