Lump the no legged dog

Common Questions and Answers about Lump the no legged dog


Avatar n tn If you can't get to the vet within an hour or so, put the sample in the fridge. There's no need to jump to the cancer conclusion just yet. In the meantime, don't feed a bunch of fatty foods. If you feed steak, cut off any excess fat. If your dog has a pancreas problem, fat can be deadly. Are there any other symptoms you've noticed? Increased or decreased water intake? Constipation or diarrhea? Bowel noises? Gas? Any observations will help your vet with a diagnosis.
375103 tn?1199227274 My beagle has a lump/hematoma and the vet just bandaged his ears to the top of his head. He said that gravity would cause the blood to pool more so putting the ears up made it easier for the fluid to drain naturally. It still cost over $200 for the visit and the antibiotic. Has anyone one had the "ears up" method work?

Avatar m tn I may be far off the mark here, but could she be dreaming? My dog makes the strangest noises when dreaming sometimes: howling/yipping/ and sometimes letting out a long moan which sounds terrible. I don't normally wake her from a dream, but if on the odd occasion she does wake, she is always her normal self. That's just a thought. It may not be that at all.
Avatar f tn We've always had 2 dogs, and can't imagine being a 1-dog household. Twice the love, twice the fun, and twice the.... poop! LOL!
Avatar m tn It dies sound like the cancer is probably in the internal organs. You certainly don't want the dog to suffer and the kindest thing you can do is euthanize which is never an easy decision! This opus only a decision you can make but sometimes we need to step out of the personal relationship we have with our pets and consider their quality of life. Have you taken her to the Vet recently? If not, maybe you should and your Vet can give you an outside, professional opinion.
Avatar f tn By the way, I'm the CL over in the pregnancy forums so y'all know I'm not just some random person who stumbles onto MedHelp. You can also PM me and I should be on later today. Still waiting for a vet to call me back...

10030400 tn?1407342882 Four days later we noticed a lump at the vaccine site. By July 11, 2014, only 3 weeks later, the mass on her leg was the size of half golf ball. The vet suggested we contact the vaccine producer to see if there were other adverse reactions to that batch of vaccine. The manufacturer Boehringer Ingelheim said that reaction to the vaccine was "rare" and they had never seen a reaction sooner than 30 days after the vaccine was given.
Avatar m tn How long do these usually last before the dog gets used to the medication? I'm hoping that these are not signs that something else is wrong, though I am aware of the possibilities.
Avatar n tn We are going through this right now. My daughter adopted/rescued a dog February 2015. We took him in a week after she took him to her apartment as she realized school + new doggie with "potential" heart issue = not enough time.
Avatar f tn One day when I was about 10 my brother and I wnet over to visit him with our 3 legged dog Pokey. Dave had a dead Possum in the cave near his camp fire, Pokey grabbed it and started to eat it. It was actually Road Kill and Dave was furious with Pokey because he wanted to make a Possum stew. Alot of people back then (especially the Hippies) used to make Possum stew. I came from a family that wasn't into that tradition...THANK GOODNESSA!!!
405614 tn?1329147714 I wonder if they're squamous cell carcinoma, too, or just some benign lump like he's had in the past. I went to the social gathering after yoga today, one of the organizers asked about Fluffy in private, and one of the women kept me engaged in conversation in the group. She also ran into me shopping (the yoga class is upstairs in a health food store), and told me to go ahead and get some chocolate covered ginger, it would be good for me.
Avatar n tn I was devastated when I found out the results. Within 8 weeks the lump had reappeared. The vet said they couldn`t operate again and to prepare for spending our last few months together.She is a cat that always has to be with you and spends every night on the bed glued to my side !! When the lump came back, everynight when she was sleeping with me I began massaging the lump. The lump reduced in size to a marble and is not showing through the skin.
Avatar f tn The vet said that chemotherapy was the next step, but to first find out if if would increase estimated survival time, otherwise there would be no point in proceeding with the chemotherapy. She gave me some statistics from a study that put surgery + adjunctive doxorubicin treatment at 441 days mean survival time. This would indicate that there would be no gain from the chemotherapy, but does not specify if this is with just tumor excision or so called 'radical surgery'.
Avatar n tn The needle biopsey came back inconclusive but when they removed it the results came back negative for cancer. It's now 7 years later and I have a lump on the remaining half. I have been able to live with out medication so far and even with the lump my thyroid is fully funtioning. I still have the symptoms of the hypothyriodism though, fatigue, moodiness, ect...but was able to balance it. However now there's a chance that the rest may need to be removed. My biggest concern is keeping wieght off.
Avatar n tn You can look at my knee and see the presence of a lump below the knee cap towards the inside of my knee. I do not complain of pain unless it is extreme. I walked around on a torn meniscus in both knees the right one for about a year the left almost 2 years when I told my doc that it was getting bad. I am angry and hurt that the first MD did not listen to me. I told him over and over again that my knee was not hurting on the side where the prosthetic is.
Avatar n tn For the past 2 days I have a very slight heat sensation in my lower left leg (no other problems). Is this some thing I should be concerned about now, or wait for my drs. appt in a few weeks?
Avatar n tn - no pun intended There is some minor pain and discomfort associated when I sit on any hard/firm surfaces for a long period of time, it starts to heart (sitting cross-legged on a hard floor is the worst) and the area by the tailbone and a few inches up goes numb. With regards to the "options" the doctors recommended, I would not want butt implants either. So what are you thinking of doing?
Avatar n tn I've even had the entire even happen while I was seeing my doctor for something else, and he saw the vein do the swelling thing, and then the popping thing, and then the bruising thing. He had no idea what it was. And while some of you think heat or something else "causes" this, it is my experience that this can happen at almost any time. As far as I know, I've never had it happen in my sleep. Besides my hands, I sometimes get them in my shins.
Avatar n tn Did all the tests possible and saw one of the best urologists in town and still no apparent answers or resons for it! No kiddney stones, no std's, no hernias. Just a lower left abdomen disconfort that radiates into my left testicle and leg. Like if someone is squeezing the testicle. The pain also comes and goes, and it get's worst when I'm laying down for a long period of time. Please anyone let me know if you find what this is!
Avatar f tn It sounds horrific and i have never heard anyone burp the way i do when i am sick. No one believes i cant burp, even the people who have heard my gurgles. My mothier thinks i am weird and refuses to take me to any kind of docter because she thinks i am making this up. i am afraid that if i dont get help soon i might just blow up. Recently, i was curious if i was the only one with this problem so i did some research online.
Avatar n tn With all that said, I have no answer (sorry!) but sometimes understanding the nuts and bolts helps. Like, with knowing all that, would seem like a nerve thing? Oxygen levels? Both of the nerves are found in the neck, and the Vagus travels alongside a pretty big neck muscle... hmmm...
Avatar n tn This happened to me rather suddenly for no apparent reason (no trauma at the most I lifted a heavy bag incorrectly), 4 yrs. ago and I have had only a few good nights since. I go to bed pain free and always wake with a severe pain in my thoracic spine which radiates around my ribcage to my sternum now.
Avatar n tn Then there are so many products, havent been using anything for a while now. Just got tired of spending the money for no results... The only thing thus far that help at all is what I have been doing for my hair. I have really fine hair, that use to be just always shiny and straight... Lately it have been just thin, stringy and just dead looking.. I havent gone grey yet ( a few strands...), so I decided no more dying the hair. Still look ah...
Avatar f tn My arms, and only my arms, have itched for 10 years. no rashes, no psiorias, excema etc. The creams, allergery list is extensive as to what I have tried but nothing worked. ---------------The only thing that helps are ice packs. ----------------------- Recently,I had an x-ray to check if I had any nerve impingement in my cervical spine - one of the possible causes but nothing showed so I continue to search for answers.
Avatar n tn Same purring, vibrating sensation in lower abdomen (back side, feels like from around inside butt area) No back pain, no bike riding, and of course no menopause (being male) The only thing in common with other people who have posted here is having been taking sleep aids and also sitting a lot a desk/computer.
Avatar n tn Thanks Jr for the explanation. I just experienced the symptoms you described yesterday. After having lunch at a spicy/greasy chinese restaurant, I had a severe stomach cramp 1st, then felt dizzy and passed out in a grocery. I remembered I went in a nice dream for very short time then became concious again. I went to the bathroom and had soft stool. My blood pressure was so low that ambulance came and sent me to ER.
Avatar m tn Continually shaking something back and forth, always using the same item. As I got older, I either grew out of it or decided it was best not to do and now no longer have the desire.
