My dog Cheyenne had some surgery

She's fine now, but got sidelined for a few weeks after surgery on a (benign) tumor. Since she had a hard time eating with that big plastic protective cone over her head, I fed her each day with a plastic spoon and eventually, after she rammed through the narrow dog door with the thing on, I had to patch it with duct tape. The fur is growing in very quickly.    :-)

  1. She had LIPOMES in several parts of her body. The one on her upper chest had grown quite large and her jugular vein was touching it. Thank you for your interest! ~~Falcon

    Here is a Wikipedia definition:

    A lipoma is a benign tumor composed of adipose tissue. It is the most common form of soft tissue tumor.[1] Lipomas are soft to the touch, usually movable, and are generally painless

  3. That's true. Labrador retrievers get those lumps quite often. Luckily they are not malignant. -Falcon
