This past weekend I felt a lump on the back of Yella’s neck. Today we went to see the vet.
His ears were dirty and so he got them cleaned out and treated for yeast. He was not happy about that.
He also got told he needed to lose a few pounds (where have we heard that before?). The vet said I was still feeding him too much, so now I’ll feed him once per day. This won’t go over well with him, but I have failed miserably with my other attempts to help him lose weight. I will give this a try and see how he does.
And he needs a dental.
So, what about the lump?
The vet shaved his neck to get a good look. She didn’t think it was a mast cell tumor because of the S-shape of the knot. She is inclined to think it may be hives. I am going to monitor it for the next month and see if it grows. If it does, back to the vet to decide next steps.
Of course you know I am freaking out because both Junior and Bubba had cancerous cells in the neck area. But Yella continues to eat and does not act like the knot bothers him.
We will keep you posted.
