Jack has a nice lump/bump on his head. Vet feels sure the bump is a fluid filled cyst. So...., Jack is going in first thing in the morning to have checked out, so he will be under.

Either the area will be cut and drained or lump removed and then stitched. I will be able to take Jack home after 4pm.

Keep Jack in your thoughts.

Sending good thoughts to Jack. Kodi has one of those, on his upper chest. The vet aspirated it and has the fluid checked.It turned out just to be a little fatty cyst and hasn't changed in over a year. He said if I see a change to have it checked again.

Hope everything is fine with Jack and removing this is just a precaution. Thinking of you and Jack.

Dropped Jack off at the Vet. While he is under, a Micro-chip will be inserted because I forgot with the neuter, nails clipped, and they will do a mouth check, blood work, pain medicines ordered.

They said I could call after 1pm to see how Jack was doing.

I am hoping when they drain or remove the cyst...they leave the hair on his head. Or.....Jack will getting a modified head groom.

I am anxious inside, I am trying to stay busy. It sure is quiet around here without Jack! Dexter did not want to eat this morning

Hope you have had some good news by now. Isn't it odd how the other dog knows when there is stress and concern about their companion dog? Dexter was worried..
Waiting for good news...Hugs..

I called like they said to after 1pm. and they were taking too long to get back to me, one minute can be a lifetime. Usually the receptionist will let you know, everything was fine.

Then, she comes back on the telephone and states the surgeon is still in surgery with a case and she will call you back.

I think the worse....

She calls back within 15 minutes. The area was a cyst. Jack will be on antibiotics and inflammatory type drug.

The Vet said she cut the cyst and drained, no hair was cut. Jack will have to return within a week or so for follow-up.

I am so grateful the area was not anything serious like a tumor or cancer. Microchip is in, they checked the teeth...moderate amount of tarter. I can come back for dental cleaning later.

I will have to ask about the blood work when I pick up Jack.

Dexter does not know what to think...it is like he is on high alert to everything today.

Four o'clock will not get here soon enough! I am still anxious. Thank you for sending positive thoughts this way.

Happy to hear Jack is doing well and it was only a cyst. It is always stressful when we leave them. Dexter will be very happy to see Jack no doubt he will have to sniff him all over to make for sure all is well.

Just a heads up that Jack may have a funny smell that might put Dexter off at first. This used to happen with my cats and it took a little while for the one from the vet to smell normal again to the other one.
