The Results for Mr Reilly

The Oncologist Vet called last night with the results of the tests they did.  The biopsy on the lump on my foot didn't show any kinds of cancer cells but it did have indications of inflammation. Xrays of my front feet showed severe arthritis (which we already know) - the left foot is the worse. Chest  Xrays were all normal and no masse could be seen anywhere else. Blood tests were all normal and I have a strong athletic heartbeat. The notes on the report said I was very relaxed, calm and handsome doggie who all the staff adored :)

So what now - the recommendation is to go and see a special doggie surgeon to determine if the lump can removed - we have to consider though that surgery on doggies feet can be very tricky (especially when involves the pads) as it can be very difficult for this area to heal properly. We also have to find out what are the chances of lump growing back and whether having it removed will really make it easier for me to walk as the vets tend to think the limping is more a result of the arthritis rather than the lump. We have an appointment to see the surgeon in 2 weeks and will know what we are going to do then - in the meantime I am just happy to go galumping (that is the sound my boots make when I run on the sand). Thank you everyone for all the Power of Paw - it means so much.
The vet was waiting for ME to arrive with my name on the sign!

  13. We are so glad to hear that it is not "C". Mabel had some sort of inflamation on her foot last month -it was on top and between her toes. A short course of prednisone took care of it

  19. We're glad it was not cancerous. Our Miss Charisma had a lot of lumpy bumps on her feet. She even had to get one toe removed. But she did quite well after that.
