« on: July 15, 2022, 07:47:02 PM »
 Everyones nightmare. Sounds daft but we have noted a lump on gemma's chest. We couldn't decide whether it was a titee.  :huh: Hers don't seem to go in a orderly fashion. Been on suspect titee watch for about fortnight. Anyway trip to the vets booked for Tuesday as she now has a definate lump. She is 11 now so getting on.. Fingers crossed its nothing..

Hopefully it's just a fatty lump and nothing to worry about.  :luv:

Oh Min

Hope all is well with Gemma - not ever having had a little girlie can't help, Ollie has lumps a plenty, old age is the pits, says me still trying to control fits of coughing 2 weeks post covid.

Take care Julie

Thanks people. It's sad watching them get old. The ginger ninja now has a "frosty tinge" to her face. She has a limp when getting up and was unable to jump up on our bed Yumove helped that. So at least she will get a health check early now instead of when it's jabbee time.. Where has the last 10 years gone 😭

It flies by, doesn't it.  Fatty lumps seem to be a thing for cockers, so fingers crossed it's just that and it's no harm getting a wee MOT.  :luv:

Fingers crossed Min! Do keep us posted! Yes, watching them age is heartbreaking, Humphrey‘s only just turned 7 but his back injury’s put years on him, he’s like an oldie 😢.
Sending  :bigarmhug: and positive vibes!!   :luv:

UPDATE
 On vet check, it's not good news. It is a mammary lump. It is small and vet was prepared to wait until we all come back from holibobs before deciding what to do. We go Aug 8th with Gemma. Anyway, am not prepared to wait. Removal Operation  and x rays etc booked for 28th July which gives us some recovering time before we go. Its early days, could be nothing but still am so sad.

My Stevie had a mammary lump detected when she was about 11. The vets wanted to do a mammary strip but I said no.  I didn’t want to put her through such an invasive operation at her age.
The lump did grow but just the lump but it never affected her, she didn’t know she had it and she continued to enjoy her quality of life and I was blessed with having her for another 3 years. :luv:   I am not telling you to go down my route as you have decided on removal but just relaying my experience.  Its a risk not to operate but also a risk to operate.  I would make the same decision if I had to though.
Good luck for 28th.

Sorry to hear that Min. I can understand how you’re feeling but you‘ve wasted no time so hopefully it‘ll all turn out well and Gemma will have got over the op enough to enjoy her holiday, where no doubt she‘ll be given lots of extra fuss and cuddles.
Sending lots of  :bigarmhug: and positive thoughts your way and Humphrey sends an extra tail wag to Gemma. Keep us posted!!

Not the news you wanted to get, I'm sorry.  On a positive note, you have found it while it is still small.  I can understand why you booked the op now, and I really hope all goes well for Gemma  :luv:

Sorry to hear this. If I were in your shoes I would do the same thing, act swiftly. If you didn't you probably wouldn't enjoy your holiday anyway. We'll keep fingers and paws crossed for a quick recovery and a happy outcome.
