Magellan is at the vet’s office now, under observation before his lumpectomy.
He’s had a big lump in his neck for a while. He had a week of banana flavored antibiotics but that didn’t fix it (though he took his doses like a champ!) and, unfortunately, the thing kept growing. If we left it, eventually it would have interfered with his eating habits, and then what would he do all day?
So back to the vet where we scheduled his lumpectomy. We did pass on the biopsy to save a couple hundred dollars. The lump has to come out no matter what it is.
So if you have a few minutes today, think some positive thoughts towards my little pet while he gets put under anesthesia.
If all goes well, he’ll be home this afternoon!
