JUANA: We had a full crew and we had a vet visit scheduled for that morning. We were taking Spice to the vet. It’s been a long time, since we reported that Spice had a fatty tumor on her side, but it’s growing. It’s getting so big. I’m afraid that if it gets any bigger, we won’t be able to take it off, because we won’t be able to close the incision. It is a big ball on her side. The doctor agreed that we should remove it, because her health is good and her blood work was good. We took her in and the doctor removed it and he thought it might have to be an open wound that would require a long time to heal. Luckily, he was able to close the incision and it wasn’t as bad as he thought it might be. He was afraid that there wasn’t enough skin to close the incision, but there was. She did well and she spent the night at Morton Clinic.
BILL: Some dogs don’t mind it.
JUANA: Some of them get used to it. It is hard to get used to. They can’t really eat very well and they can’t scratch themselves.
BILL: Has her cancer ever come back?
JUANA: She has several spots that are black and hard. I just don’t want to put her under anesthesia right now, because of her heart problems. She has so many of these spots, but she doesn’t appear to be suffering with them. I don’t want to do anything that we don’t have to do. She doesn’t seem to be in pain as a result of those spots. Hopefully, it’s not cancer.
