That's a great idea.
I just felt the thing. It isn't attached to the muscle/rib area at all-I can get my fingers under it as I grab onto his skin. It is just under the skin, soft, I can move it around and I would say it is the size that would sit easily on a spoon (the usual silverware size spoon)

I know exactly what you mean-I feel the same way.

Hank posted this earlier, but the title has a typo and it might not get picked up on a search! I'm wondering if a Mod can correct it??

If it is the size of a spoonful, I would think it is big enough to be aspirated and would request it done whether the vet thinks it is needed or not.

We just had one aspirated on Spip the Lab and I am thinking about asking for a recheck at her next visit a few months from now. It literally take a minute for the draw, a couple of minutes for the vet to check it, and does not require sedation of any kind.

We found a lump on Toby that we'll get checked out tomorrow at his regular vet appointment- a follow up to his Great Tamale escapade and a regular acupuncture session:



Those are hubby's dirty fingers- he'd been out detailing the car when I asked him to find the lump.

Looks scabby Anne. Are the edges peeling up?

Yes, but it's black below it. I also suspect Toby has a case of icythyosis (sp) as I noticed it after his double boarding the last two weekends.

Cody would get sores like that with staph, Anne. Keep us posted on what the vet says.
