I didn’t think much an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> it at that time but as time progressed lump seemed like it was growing. The lump was right below the anal and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dogan> more frequently scratched his butt on the carpet. Finally the partial skin peeled an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan>f and started bleeding. I took an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dogan> to the vet and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> vet recommended lump removal surgery and also neutering him at the same time. all was done and I brought him from vet yesterday and I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>noticedan> that the stitched area wasn’t covered with any bandage.
He was just to the vet last Thursday and everything checked out fine. This weekend, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> fiance informed me an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> a lump he had seen near his penis. I looked, its about 2cm long by about 1cm wide. It literally looks like the bump is going to pop. I do not see any kind an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> head on it to say its a pimple or ingrown hair. I know an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> vet most likely won't be able to get him in this week. We leave for vacation Thursday and I just wanted some input as to what it could possibly be. Its hard, and pink.
Good morning aan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan>...first, let me say thanks for an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>beingan> proactive and neutering your pet! Was the "lump" on either side an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> the shaft an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> the penis? If so, what you are describing is known as the bulbis glandis and it actually helps "tie" the male an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dogan> to the female an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dogan> during mating. Many owners have called back an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> their an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dogan>s castration to tell us that we forgot to remove the testicles!!! In all likelihood, this is normal and nothing to worry about.
It's normal for them to not want to eat right away either. I know I didn't want to eat the day <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> I had surgery. I wouldn't worry about cleaning her right now either. You don't want to be pulling around the incision area. When she feels up to it, she'll start cleaning herself. The tricky part is keeping her from pulling at her incision. Did they give her the kind that dissolves? It's been a few years since I've had a cat get fixed. I'm not sure what they're using right now.
Some people are confused on their male an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dogan>s when the see two lump like objects along the shaft an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> the penis even <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dogan> was neutered. These are the bulbous glands and they help in the "tying" an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> male to female an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dogan> during copulation. These will remain despite neutering and on some an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dogan>s they are quite prominent. This is a very common question in veterinary practice.
I been Doctoring it and looking better it trying to scab over the lump is gone all the puss is out I been doing what I can cause at the moment I don't have the money to take him we are at the moment struggling trying to pay bills I peroxide and antibiotic ointment all I can do at this time
anyways today I just got really lightheaded <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> climbing the stairs and I seriously thought I was about to collapse. I felt like I was choking and I had that feeling like something in an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> body wasn't right... I was very shaky. I just don't know what to do - I'm 85% sure that it's probably panic attacks but that other 15% doubt is totally taking over an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> mind and making me freak out. I'm finding an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan>self having to pop four to five 25mg xanax/day just to relax and now I'm terrified to exercise.
Over the years he has eaten sheet rock, insulation, carpet, lots an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> bedding, socks, underwear, trash and grasses. He's never had a blockage or needed any surgery (besides his neutering). The thing is that he doesn't just eat stuff like a puppy would - for fun. He eats it like his stomach is hurting and he finds whatever fiber around to eat to possibly absorb something/acid? It really wasn't that bad in the beginning and we just thought what the vets thought. That he's just an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>beingan> a lab.
Our old an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dogan> was mauled by a cow some weeks ago. Some time <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> this we an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>noticedan> a lump on one an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> her hind breasts. We took her to the vet yesterday and the vet said she has cancer. Mum and Dad think that if the cancer has spread and isn't contained to the one breast that she should be put down. I disagree. I think she still seems reasonably well and that it would be premature to put her down.
When I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>noticedan> a san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan>t lump on back near scabbed area, got worried and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan>f we went to see his vet. Glad I acted fast as he had an abcess...similar to one he needed surgery for on shoulder awhile back. This time he was shaved and tech said she (or vet) expressed. Vet said I'd caught it early...a good thing. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> course...I'd had to use their restroom during the process...returned to exam room to find an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> boy roaming around on floor under table....with large round shaven place on back.
He had two seizures, one on Sunday and one on Monday, at almost exactly the same time in the evening. <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> the second seizure, the vet put him on phenobarbital (97 mg/2x per day). He's been on it for five an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>daysan> now and is still pretty out an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> it. He is extremely lethargic (sleeps most an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> the day), has coordination problems, and weakness in his hind end. He walks veeery slowly. He's also extremely hungry and thirsty. I've read that all an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> these are possible phenobarbital side effects.
