Monty Someday

Birthday Celebrations Continue
Thank you so very much for the prayers you said for our big boy. He had a cyst removed from his head two weeks ago and finally had the stitches taken out yesterday. Aside from being lethargic the day of surgery, he bounced back to his normal self the following day. And believe it or not, the stitches didn't seem to phase him so we never had to put the "cone of shame" around his neck.

The lab diagnosis came back with a fancy name called hemangioma. They believe it was sun induced, but can't be 100% sure. The vet hoped he wasn't overreacting when he chose to surgically remove it, but turns out, all of us were glad he did. Had we left the cyst alone, it could have become malignant over time. He's at high risk for these lesions, so we'll have to check over his skin from time to time and have any future cysts removed.

In the meantime, I suppose ill be purchasing some type of doggy sunscreen. Does that exist? #overprotectivedogmom
