Came a little early this year, but I will still like your input. Friday night, I was brushing my 16 year old Golden, Erin, when I found a large lump on her front wrist. It is the size of a small chicken egg. My heart sank as I realized she would probably not survive any kind of operation at her age. Needless to say, I was at the Vet's when they opened Sat. morning. The Dr. shaved and then aspirated the lump. Right away she told me it was NOT bone cancer, and then when she checked the cells, they were all clear . WHEW !!! Dx is a joint inflamation, like water on the knee. I am to apply warm compresses 3 times a day, which I have done since Sat. It does not seem to be getting any better yet. We go back to the Vet's on Thursday. Has anybody ever had this or heard of this before? In 35 years of owning and rescuing dogs I never have. I am posting a pic, the redness is from where they apirated it and it is gone now. In the mean time, she is getting lots of extra hugs and kisses from her Mommy and Daddy. Thanks.
