Pogo In Surgery For Eye Tumor

Recommended Posts

My bruiser boy, Pogo, is at the vet for a few growth removals, but the one that worries me most is on his eyeball. :unsure: They'll be sent to pathology, as he keeps getting them, and I want to know for sure what we're dealing with here. Especially since ... well ... eyeball!!

 

Any good thoughts would be appreciated!

 

Obligatory pics to focus good thoughts on:

The office just called to say he did great, is waking up fine, and I can pick him up around 4:30! Whew. That part's over, anyway!

 

Thanks for the good thoughts!

 

Kudzu, yes, he does have a tough-looking face, and he has some (occasional, dog fear-aggression) issues to go with it, but he loooooooooves humans!! While we were waiting at the counter, a tech saw his face peeking around the corner, and she just busted up laughing, then came and gave him a pet. :lol

Thank you for checking in with us! It gives me warm fuzzies. :wub:

 

Pogo's home now. He's not too happy, but resting at the moment. I was sure he'd have to wear the cone of shame, but no. His eye just looks barely red where the growth was removed. He has a few stitches at the point where one ear meets his forehead, and a bunch of yucky and slightly weepy stitches on the inside of one knee. Those are going to be the most painful, I'm sure.

 

When I went to pick him up, they had a bag with his growths, each in a sample jar, on the counter. I had to look! Kinda of yuck, but pretty interesting. The eye one was teensy, just a little black-red goo-blob. One (from his knee?) was biggish, and looked almost like they'd pinched up the skin and snipped it off with scissors. I didn't get a good look at the third.

 

Kind of funny thing. I was making some lunch, and got a phone call from a client. I **heard** him say that he was the vet calling from the hospital! :P He asked me if I'd gotten his email, and I was all a-flutter to get back to my computer, and asked him, "No, were you taking pictures of his thing?" :rofl He just said, "What? No ..." and went on with his subject, during which I finally got that it was NOT the vet.

 

"Were you taking pictures of his thing?" :rofl Oh my. Good thing he was too self-absorbed to notice how self-absorbed I was and totally take that the wrong way!!
