Re: now Mick- americana!/ shipping dates


It may be cancer, won't know til he goes in and it is growing fast. It's a few inches long by a couple inches high and has a pocket of gas inside. A strong possibility is that it's wrapped around the intestines or vice versa and can't be removed or that if the mass can be removed it will set a lot of seed cancers which would be disastrous. It's not related to the heartworm, but wasn't easily detected a month ago (when HW was detected) because the mass (if it was there then) sort of pulls up to a hiding place. However, now it was easy to find because he'd lost more weight and when he's laid out flat for the xray, it comes down and is more easily seen.

I specifically asked about his strength level as to surviving surgery, and Dr thinks he'll be ok. Today he ate a whole slice of roast beef for breakfast and anoher for lunch. It's not a lot, but it is protein, and it is something. I just hope it's enough.
Thanks for your concern.

Give him an extra pet from me..... poor thing. Any clue what the mass is?
Related to the heart worm?

I just worry his strength will be an issue without being able to eat
properly for a week going into this surgery.

The vet's schedule is so packed with surgeries. I was hoping he could do
it
sooner, but this was the best he could do. I do believe that he considers
it
serious and needing quick attention, but not so life-threatening that
waiting nearly a week will cause much harm. I just wish Mick didn't also
have the heartworm to deal with. The xray did show his heart is slightly
enlarged. He can't eat much because this mass takes up a lot of room.
