As many of you know we have a Collie dog called Pax.
In the past we have had problems caused by fatty lumps and we get Him tested quite often.
After we had returned from Holiday all seemed ok so we thought. On Thursday we found a further lump on the opposing hind leg so we rushed Him to the VET and further tests were performed on His fatty lumps. We were supposed to get results yesterday and we seemed to be on the phone all day, with other things. So Hazel phoned this Morning and His results proved clear. His lumps contain fat and fluid and many dogs suffer from the same problem. So missing the call and not finding out what was going on we had a very unsettled twenty four hours or so.
Pax is part of my diversion therapy and it can really upset me when something is wrong. Our last Dog, Pip was a Pat dog in Mental Health, He was a valuable animal and many Mental Health people were very upset when the dog died so now we are very proactive when we find lumps and bumps.
So now we are breathing a sigh of relief that Pax is fine so I am now able to relax once more. At this time He is sitting at my feet like nothing has happened.
The funny thing about this morning Pax went with Hazel when She phoned the Vet, as soon as the results were explained He rushed back into the room and gave me several sloppy licks, as much to say I am ok now, stop worrying.
Now yes nothing was to worry about, yes we had a Vet Bill, it was worth the visit and put our minds at rest. Even Pax is more relaxed by His results.
One of the dogs in the Vet had, had an ear removed I supposed Pax picked up on that.
