    Worried about Taggert

    I am very worried about Taggert and have set up a 3:30 pm vet appointment. He has had a fatty tumor for several years now. But now it is hard as a rock and feels warm to the touch and he is very sensitive about your touching it. So please keep my silly boy in prayer today.

    Well, we're back from the vets. He said the fatty tumor has ruptured! He gave him rimadyl for pain and an antibiotic to clear up the infection/inflamation. He said it should clear up in about about week. I f it doesn't, he will have to remove it. I didn't know they could rupture! And he asked me if I wanted to hear something gross He said he had one on his back that had ruptured just recently too but it was much, much smaller that Taggerts. I told him I thought he and Taggert looked alike. They are both taking the same antiobiotic but Taggert takes two doses a day and he takes 3. He also said that while this isn't extremely unusual, it doesn't happen real often. And that as usual my dogs have to come up with something more unusual. Thanks for the prayers!

    Yes, a human I know had the same thing happen, only on his chest. Hope Tag feels better soon, give him a kiss on his shaggy head for me!

    Just catching up on this news, glad all seems well. Heal up, now, Taggart!

    Lacey has a fatty tumor on her side, so far we just keep watch on it. I did NOT know they can rupture!
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    How is Taggert doing today? I am glad that he checked out well at the Vets & pot some meds
    to help him heal up and be comfortable. I hope he feels better each day.

    I came over to the dog side to check on Taggert also. I saw the post on Facebook but wasn't sure which Taggert was ill. Glad it was just a fatty tumor.
