My sweet Clarabelle had to have a minor surgery yesterday. I noticed that her foot was bleeding, but she would not let me get close enough to see what was going on. I took her to the veterinarian and he had the same problem. He recommended that we put her under assuming that it was a cut and that she would need to be stitched. She went in Tuesday morning for the small procedure.
Imagine my surprise when the veterinarian called and told me that it was not a cut, but rather a growth that had either burst, or opened because she was chewing on it. He said it was likely benign, but he did send a sample to pathology to be tested.
She is home safe and sound, and she has pain medicine to help her feel comfortable. I am not comfortable though. I am sad for my baby. I don’t want her to hurt, and I worry because she is my sweet baby. Needless to say, I am spending a lot of time with Clarabelle right now, she doesn’t get far from my side.
