Default Steph and Pallie

Steph and Pallie are here!

Pallie's hanging tough. I'm taking her to the vet today to check another believed-to-be lipoma. Otherwise she's hanging in there pretty good.

Hope everyone had a great Easter/Passover.

Hi Stephanie,

I was curious - do you have all lumps checked out by your vet. I wish I did, but I stopped having them checked when they kept saying they were benign. Wylie now has tons of these fatty tumors - been getting them for the last 3 years, with new ones popping up all the time - small ones, big ones, round ones, long ones... I showed the last new one I found (in his right armpit) to a vet (not his regular vet) and she just assumes its benign. Does your vet get a sample of each lump?

Just curious, I kinda don't want to deal with ANOTHER thing.

Good luck with the check-up.

-Susy

I hear ya Scott on the fatty tumors. I could make a fortune between my two geriatric schnauzers. I try to get the biggest bang for my buck so when they have their teeth cleaned is when they get them looked at and removed if necessary.

My Annie (she's ONLY 14) had one last time that the vet said was unlike anything he'd ever seen. He was concerned it was cancerous. It was a lipoma with a cyst on top of it. Double whammy. They cut all around it to be sure it was nothing. Poor gal had multiple layers of stitches.

I'm not sure it isn't worth something. What about that Beverley Hills Bio Deisel? (http://tywkiwdbi.blogspot.com/2008/1...aste-into.html)

Hey just realized - I could be sitting on a fortune here!

Hey Pallie and Steph, glad to hear everything is Great.

I could host a "party fatty tumor".... or just contribute to the oil independence....

My vet has mapped and measure every bump on my Truffa's body, sometimes I swear to him that she is loosing weight , but the growing fatty tumors are the ones to blame for her gain weight..... obviously Truffa sniffing his white pockets and begging next to his cookie jars totally obliterates my pity excuses...

But thanks to my stubborness and obsessiveness in checking -measuring and absorbing samples - every old and new bump, that's how we found two mast cells, and for my surprise they were the "pretty and small ones that were mast cells.... so my advice : keep on doing the oil exploration.

I know we had some Tramadol discussions on the old CC.net, but I can't remember what everyone's feedback was.

Pallie's having some rear-leg pain/weakness, whether it's Cushings, arthritis, the fact she's 12, etc.
So we are trying a 50mg Tramadol in the morning and evening.
For those who have used it, does it work right away, or does it take a few days for results to show? Has anyone used it for arthritis and/or old age pain?

Thanks!
Steph and Pallie the wonder-corgi(hound)
