It has been quite a long time..in fact, I think a few years maybe since I last posted on this forum. My husband and I got our second Golden Retriever, Layla, in November of 2011. She is now 2.5 years old and such a beautiful girl at that.
Today we noticed her licking her paw and saw a growth on her paw, in between a toe. We immediately got her into the vet and it is indeed something that needs to be removed. There is a possibilty it could be cancerous. She is having surgery on Monday and there's a chance her one toe may need to be removed. They will be sending the growth in to get biopsied, and we'll have the results by next week Friday.
I know this may seem minor to some, but I find my whole world almost crashing down right now. Everything was fine yesterday, and now I am scared out of my mind that something is going to happen to our sweet baby girl. They brought us home with an E-Collar which she is adjusted to a bit, but seems so sad with it on. It breaks my heart that she may be thinking in her head, "What the hell did I do to deserve this."
I am just asking for your prayers right now that the results come back non-cancerous and she can have a long, healthy, life. I keep telling myself that even if she has to lose a toe, it would be so much better than losing her altogether. It breaks my heart..she is too young to be going through any of this. I am so sad right now.
