    He had to have a lump removed today. The incicision is WAY bigger than I thought it would be. He's still so out of it, wants to lick it, is terrified of the cone. I don't know I am going to do tomorrow when I have to go to work :(

    Aww I'm so sorry that your dog is feeling so awful! Hopefully he'll end up falling asleep, I remember that's mostly what my dog did when she had to be on painkillers. Also, as much as you might hate to do this, keep his cone on! If he licks his incision he can easily infect it or even take the stitches out accidentally.

    It’s a good thing his lump is going to be removed. It must have been hurting him. What causes the lump? Maybe you can hire a babysitter to look after him while you’re at work or you could leave him in the clinic. Or you can just make sure that he’s comfortable at home (though I know you will) before you leave. Anyway, I guess he would just lie around most of the time and rest. I hope he recover soon. :)

    The lump is gone and he is healing. The scar is HUGE, never thought it would be that big. We're not sure yet what caused the lump but hopefully we will find out soon. 10 days from now he shoudl be good as new!

    Hopefully he's feeling better now. If your dog is an older dog it may be a cyst, I'm sure the vet will biopsy it to make sure there's nothing more wrong with it.

    Yes he's feeling much better. He got his stiches out and we got the biopsy results back. It was a benign mass! So a few more days of healing and we're done with this whole ordeal.

    Glad he is better. One of my daughter's dogs has had that cone thing so many times, he hardly notices it and runs around like usual....it really does help though.

    I don't htink this boy would have ever gotten used to his cone. But the pro collar thing that we bought him worked like a charm. I'm very excited in case he ever has another surgery :)
