I'm going to the vet with Daisy around 7h00pm.I want to have her eye check out,I think she is starting to have glocoma or cataracts.I wanted to wait but I found another lump on her,a big one and I don't like the feel of it.It was smaller last week,first time I felt it.Yesterday was way bigger,called my vet in a panic.If it was a fatty lump,would it grow??I don't think so...I was "alright" yesterday,but now,I feel sick to my stomach.She already had 2 tumours removed in 2 separate occasion in the last 9 months,2 operations,she is 10 yr old,I promised her it was the last time (in April) that she had to go thru this.Please let it be something else.I just want to cry right now and don't feel like working at all.:sad:

Frenchy, my prayers and positive thoughts are going out to your dear Daisy.
I hope the news will be postive.:fingerscr
It's hard to think about anything "else' when worried and frightened about our animal's health, isnt it? No wonder you dont feel like working...

Good luck, and keep us posted.

Sending along my prayers as well, are their other health problems or were previous lumps cancerous or problems with anesthesia? I am confused as why you would not want to operate again, dogs tend to handle and tolerate and recover from surgeries so much better than humans do, and 10 is not really that old for most dog breeds.

Thanks for your kind words.I don't know much about the lump,still waiting for my vet to call with results.He was more concern by her eyes.A different problem in each eye!What are the odds.I have to put ointment for 10 days in her left eye,but if there is no change after 5 days,I should see a specialist.I will call tomorrow to make an appoitment at the animal hospital.He saw a white line in the other (you have to use their little flashlight to see and I could barely see anything) He tought it was strange.So not the news I wanted to hear.Poor Daisy,she just wanted to get out of there!So I guess I'll have to wait for the results,again,the waiting.Still hoping for that fatty lump!:fingerscr

:fingerscr Daisy will be OK:fingerscr My last dog had fatty tissue lumps and the largest was the size of your fist, and yep it grew from small to that size in a little span of time. So hopefully thats all it is, with her eyes I've never had dogs with eye problems before, so who knows.

Well it seems to be a fatty lump :thumbs up,vet is not 100% sure,some blood came out in the sample,he told me to check it every week.I have an appointment for her eyes July 5 but I'm waiting for a phone call from a vet in Montreal I went to see with Bailey last week.Maybe he knows more than my vet about the eyes thing.Worse case scenario;tumour or ulcer in one of her eyes,that would mean an operation to take out the eye:sad: .I'm still praying it's not it and that the ointment treatment will clear everything :fingerscr I'M kind of hoping for a miracle!But who knows?Boxerrescue;no,the other lumps were cancerous. That's why I freak out everytime I find a lump!Ontariogreys;I don't want to put Daisy thru operation after operation.If it keeps coming back,it would be too much for her (and me!) It only been 2 months since her last one.

Hi Frenchy GLAD to hear it was a fatty lump, we all get alittle lumpy bumpy when we age HEE HEE HEE, I have to agree with you somewhere you have to draw the line in what is fair for her and you as far as the operations go, best of luck with her eyes, having had a dog that her eye sight went very quickly its hard, now we're going through it with the old man but his is due to age. Hope the drops help:fingerscr :grouphug:

Frenchy, I can definitely understand why you are so worried. I too freak out when I find a lump. Misty has quite a few. The vets think they are just fatty lumps. I will be visiting the vet tomorrow for her Cushings blood tests and will be discussing some of her lumps with him some more. There is one in particular that I'm not sure I like the look of it. We will discuss having her put through surgery to remove that one and another. She has two that we are keeping a close eye on, one on her mammary gland and the other on her bum area. The needle aspiration on the one on her bum suggested it was benign, but they still scare me. I can definitely understand your worries about putting her through more surgery. Misty is 10 and it scares me to have to put her through surgery.

We are hoping for the best for Daisy. Hopefully her eye heals quickly and it is nothing serious that requires surgery. My thoughts and prayers will be with you both.

Good luck to you too Beaglemom!I wish we could have something at home so we could test the lumps ourselves!It's normal for older dogs to get those but everytime I rush to my vet...Bailey never got any,Sam got one (fatty lump) and I stop counting for Daisy's!Keep us updated:fingerscr
