We just heard from our vet that Max has a malignant thyroid tumor. Rick was petting Max on weds night and felt a small lump around Max's throat, so yesterday I took him to the vet to get checked out. They ran some tests, took a biopsy and took X-rays . The vet just called and suggested we get a surgical consult as soon as possible. He says the tumor is small and mobile which is a good sign because there is a better chance to remove it surgically. We are crossing our fingers that all goes well. We can't even make an appointment until Monday, hopefully we can see the surgeon Monday or Tuesday.

I know this must be very scary for you. I will be thinking of you and hope things go smoothly and the Vet will be able to remove the tumor and Max will heal uneventfully. Hugs

Paula, I'm so sorry to hear this. I know how hard this is foryou having gone through torture about Shelby's eyes. Kodi also has a lump on his chest, but thankfully it is just a fatty thing. Our vet told me the same as your vet about the lump, so hopefully you will get very good news from the surgeon. You will be in my thoughts for a good outcome.

Paula, I'm so sorry to hear this but am hopeful, as you are, that it's small enough and caught early enough to remove. I'm praying for a good outcome and will check back often Monday or Tuesday to hear what happens. Sending healing your way.

I will also keep Max and you in my thoughts and hope for a good outcome for him. Having this happen on a Friday and not being able to make an appointment until Monday has got to be hard - when you just want to get moving on it.

Wishing you the best news ever!! All of you will be in my thoughts. I'm glad you found it early....and this is a notice for me to check Cicero all over. I hold and rub him all the time, but I don't just check and make sure I don't feel knots, etc. I will be checking back.

Hope that you have a good visit at the vets and you get some positive information, so that every thing can be sorted out ASP.Know it is different, but my DH had a tumour on his thyroid about 10 years ago,[very worrying at the time]anyway after a 4 hour opp everything was sorted out.

My prayers are with you, Rick & Max. I know this is frightening but hopefully it will be a mistake and if not a simple procedure will take care of it.
