I thought I would throw a quick blog post up about Riley's day yesterday. Yup! He's wearing a cone! The night before we noticed a lump on his throat and long story short we were able to get him in to see a vet the next morning without having to wait. After losing Gabby not that many month ago I was worried something major was going to be wrong with Riley. BUT...I'm happy to report that the lump we found was a larger equivalent of a 'skin tag' and was removed without having to put him under. The vet was able to numb the area and clip it from his skin and he only required a few stitches. They are telling us that his re-coop time should only be 14 days. We were relieved and very happy it wasn't something major. He also has another ear infection but he's had chronic ear infections his whole life so we are more than used to treating those.
Aww poor baby! I hope he makes a speedy recovery.ReplyDelete
I'm optimistic he will! He's doing much better with everything than I expected :)Delete
His hair is so thick - it's hard to see his skin underneath - unless you are specifically looking for something, ya know? Eeeeek!
Poor Riley, hope he recovers soon! We may need to put a cone on Skipper too, there's a sore on his leg he won't leave alone.ReplyDelete
He's been following me around like crazy and banging the cone into my calf and it's all black and blue!!! I can't wait until that cone is off of him - I'm sure he feels the same way! LOL - he's doing real well, tho! I'm very pleased with his progress so far :)Delete
Oh dear! Hope everything's ok now.ReplyDelete
Things are progressing nicely so far. Once we get that cone off and the stitches out I'm sure he'll be back to normal - or - HIS normal - haha!Delete
