UPDATE: Rocky did great through surgery and is scheduled to come home in a few hours. She did laser surgery for an easier recovery. She suspects an oral melanoma and pathology will be back next week. He already has an appointment set up with VCA Aurora oncology team in early October.

Duke is home and doing pretty well! He had four hemangios that they lasered off and then the plasma cell tumor was removed. He ate a small amount (wanted more but we’re waiting to see how this settles). He’s taking a nap now

His vet said that the staff at his practice love hanging out with both Duke and Rocky pre-surgery; that they are just NICE dogs

The vet called with Rocky’s pathology results today and he does have oral melanoma:(

He meets with the oncologist on Tuesday to see what next steps are.
