I discovered a lump on my Baxter's upper chest yesterday. I called the vets office and made an appointment for him and as it was not an emergency at this point in time, he will go in next Monday to have it checked out. In the meantime I am suppose to keep an eye on it. If there are any changes in it, I am to notify the vets office and he will get in sooner.
While I am concerned, I'm probably not as panicked as I could be, because I have gone through this before with my Bobbie girl @ 10 years ago. Her lump was removed and tested and it turned out to be fatty tissue. Since Bax's lump in almost in the same place, I'm hoping that it will be the same kind of tumor and that he will heal up as quickly as my Bobbie did.

Poor Baxter! I hope it isn't anything more serious than a fatty deposit. Hope all goes well at the vet.

No change in the lump....tho Baxter does not want to cooperate with me examining it.....at least without the aid of yoggies LOL. When I have been able to feel it, it feels .... loose??? like it's not really a part of his muscles, but just kinda sitting on there, and is not a hard lump, but more squishy.

At this time, I don't know if it will be removed on Monday when he has his appointment or if it will just be biopsied so it can be tested.

Baxter is doing well. He in enjoying his one on one magnet & Mommy time.....of course that might be because he gets yoggies and turkey. As far as his lump.....I know it's not any bigger, but it's hard to tell if the magnets have made it smaller because based on how he holds his head it can appear either smaller or the same size.

Baxter just got back from the vets and he is definately going to need surgery to remove his lump. His surgery is scheduled for Wed. am. In the meantime, I am to start him on antibiotics and pain meds.

Baxter did NOT like the vet touching his lump or even looking at it. The minute he was held so it could be seen he began to yell "it hurts! it hurts!" which is the crab the majority of my gliders use at the vets....some even start it before they are touched!

I was able to get a few photos of the lump and the vet tech said she would ask about taking pictures during his surgery.

Chris, I'm so sorry Baxter is going through this, how upsetting. You know you're doing the right thing though, and in the long run Baxter will be grateful to his mommy for being so dedicated to him and loving him so much...it sounds like you have a wonderful knowledgable vet, so hopefully that gives you a little peace of mind....please continue to keep us updated....I'll be sending prayer and positive thoughts your way!
