Tomorrow morning my furry baby is headed back to the vet for more surgery.
She has been dealing with unknown skin issues for several years now. Most notably, at the hinge of her lips on the right side. I had thought she had simply scratched her self while rubbing her face on something. The area was often clotted with dried blood.
The pink, fleshy growth above her mouth is fairly new. That started forming just before I left for Wisconsin last September. When I returned home, it was the size of a green pea.
Both my vet in Hamilton and the new one here in Etobicoke think the mouth sore is an allergic reaction. But to what? They both suggested custom foods – that are available only through them of course. Currently, I am feeding Debug a kangaroo meat meal each morning. She has lost weight between vet visits thanks to the lean diet; but the sores remain.
So tomorrow, the vet will remove that pink growth through “abrasion and cauterizing” – two words that shivered my spine – since there is not enough room or flesh for sutures.
I’m paying extra to get the growth analyzed at a lab. Hopefully, it will provide some much-needed answers.
