GreytNut Posted July 20, 2008 Share Posted July 20, 2008 (edited) Raven has had a small hematoma on her neck/chest area for quite a while. It's never bothered her, and two different vets have told me not to mess with it. All of a sudden, though, it has bulged up and started rupturing and leaking blood. Last night it broke again and wouldn't stop dripping, so she went in to the vet bright and early this morning. They bandaged her up and she's coming back again on Wednesday to have it removed. It's got quite a network of arteries feeding it so it will be a difficult/messy removal. They want to send it away to pathology to make sure it hasn't become cancerous, since its "behavior" has changed. While she's out she's going to have a dental. No sense in putting her under anesthesia twice. Looks like one of her canines will need to go, and one of her molars. Total estimated cost for this whole adventure: $1,600. Ouch for her, and for the bank account too! Raven's hematoma... from harmless to icky in one night: Raven sez she likes her stylin' red bandage. Tiny isn't so sure about it, though. Please wish this old gal some good luck!
