Just an update on Rocky. He has recently (within the last 2 months, or so) developed a growth on the top of one of his back feet. The Vet told us that it looked like a histiocytoma and they usually go away in about a month or so with no treatment. He gave us an antibiotic ointment to apply twice daily to keep it from getting infected. Even though we are doing exactly what the Vet had said, it just keeps growing. He will need to have surgery to removed it on Wednesday (4/23) and they will have to give him general anesthesia. He has also been vomiting almost everyday lately. Usually it is just clear mucus, but today it was a little undigested food. I am getting very concerned about all of this. I'm not sure what we will do if it turns out to be cancer. We have been through so much with him. He is such a wonderful dog and a fun part of our family. We love him very much. Please keep him in your thoughts this week. Keep your fingers crossed that it is just a cyst.
