She does NOT have cancer!!!! It was a type of tumor that is completely benign (non-cancerous) but would have kept growing until it ruptured. It would have been very painful & would have required a much more extensive surgery than she had. It was good that we got it now.
The vet said the fluid will take a couple of weeks to go away. If it is still there when we take her to get her stitches out on June 3 we’ll talk about what the next step might be. The discoloration in her chest is probably bruising & completely normal with the fluid she built up. The vet believes she had this reaction because she lays on that side—at night it is the side she likes to sleep on; when she’s on the couch it is the side she sleeps on.
As for the diarrhea; the vet said to put her on bland diet of hamburger & white rice until her stools come back to normal. If they don’t return to normal by Wednesday or if she begins to act lethargic we need to bring her in. As long as she’s drinking she shouldn’t dehydrate. I’m thinking she’ll never eat her kibble again once we start burger & rice. Lol
Anyway, that’s good news!!!! YAYAYAYAYAY
