Gunny's Lump

So the results of the aspiration show no lipoma...it's a suppurative or purulent inflammation :(


The first course of action is to try antibiotics, which she has been taking since Tuesday. If there is no change when those are done, then the vet will surgically remove it and send it for a biopsy.


I am a little worried as these supposedly can be a result of something systemic or nothing at all. I guess even cancer. I'm hoping that even if the antibiotics don't take it away, then the surgery will, she will heal and we will just move on.


She doesn't show any signs of pain or discomfort or irregularity in any of her day to day activities. It doesn't appear to be painful or to bother her at all.


Does anyone have any experience with something like this?


Here is a pic from this morning:

No, I can't say that I have seen anything like that, even with my four years working for Dr. B. The "fatty tumors," he removed, and they were many, were larger.


All I can say at this point, it to TRY not to worry! I know that is hard, but it might be someghing VERY simple.

No advice here either, just best wishes that the antibiotics take care of it for Gunny. :goodluck

Well, drat. Hope the antibiotics fix it and she is back to 100% soon. Wonder if she could be having a reaction to old "dissolvable" stitches that didn't dissolve??
