This morning I took Milly to the vet - I had some trouble making an appointment before my trip to Florida (I was there for a long weekend, and to escape the snow of DC), so I decided to just schedule it for when I returned from vaccation.
My gut feeling that it was just a cyst proved to be true! Praise the Lord, and thank you all for your kind words, thoughts and prayers as I worried about my sweet Milly, and the possibility of this lump being cancerous. My vet let me watch the entire aspiration process, and it was very interesting. We also went ahead and did a semi-annual senior exam and complete blood work. I'll have the results from the bloodwork on Monday, and hopefully everything will be A okay! My vet was very impressed with Milly's over all condition and health, and that always makes me feel good. I work very hard to give her optimum care.
The more I see veterinary procedures like today the more I think I would like to go to vet school. I'm slowly learning how to do basic things myself like draw blood, give shots, and express anal glands... which is all enjoyable for me (okay, the anal glands stink, but I save a lot of money doing them myself).
As a thank you for all of your kind thoughts about Milly I want to share this hilarious video of a Rottweiler singing Pink Floyd! ENJOY!!
Also, keep spreading the word about The Wet Nose... we're so close to 100 followers, and when we get there there will be a GREAT giveaway!! :)
