    okay ....i am freaking out a wee bit so i am gonna do a thread following jake and this growth.....hubby and i are sitting up in the pasture...under the apple tree when jake grins and we both go...wtf?

    [​IMG]

    i mean its sticking out....so we call the vet...come in at 4...we got time..we get on the net....wrong ...so wrong....90% chance of cancer...jake is like 12 ish now....so we go to the vet...who looks at it and says....i dont think its cancer but its got to come off .....we nod in simple thanks and hope....she continues...the post opt will be a mess...i will stitch it..he will tear them out...it is a hard place to stitch...i inquire about valium....she says fine to the valium....i inquire about bluebirds (10 mlg) she realizes it is not for jake and laughs...seems vets only do yellow ones..she gives jake an antiinflammtory to see if the growth would go down.....we have an appt for monday if the growth doesnt go down any...if it does she will put it off till friday....she is going out of town for a few days but i want to get it done and get it the pathologist

    i will update yall on the progress with graphic post opt pics.....i might get jen to take opt pics but damn that will be gross...

    he has been grumpy of late.....snapping at the others regardless of what they are doing..waking up and kinda snapping.....

    the meds would have brought it down if it were an abscess...for his age he has great teeth

    so tomorrow he goes in....to have it removed

    vet has called... a 'boney' growth.....they are sending it off....not sure what it is...perhaps i should not have suggested a parasitic twin....it got me a look that would kill from hubby....we pick up jake at 4:30. he will be given an ample amount of pain killers...i have a quiet place for him....
