Default Hear we go again - Grim

Well I would appreciate any experiences on this one. Up until last week everything was just going GREAT

Past week he has been a little stiff in the shoulders but he has some spondylosis and cold/wet seems to make things a little stiff - heck I have that problem where I have the plate in my ankle, and Grim is 9,5 and been "run hard put up wet"

But this am I felt a lump over his shoulder (right over the blade) and another on his neck. Ran him to the vet. She aspirated - pulled out a bunch of blood like a hematoma but no signs of trauma - certainly no known trauma .......Did x-rays and nothing there though and his color is good, appetite good, no signs of abdominal swelling issues, etc.

His CBC and Chem were perfect in Dec but
She drew CBC with morphology, Chem panel, Tick panel and is sending the x-rays to radiologist to see if she missed anything. The apirate from both locations will also be tested and she gave him some tramadol for pain.

She really gave no insight other than "lets get the test results back" - so of course I am thinking the worst and have come up with subcutaneious hemangiosarcoma....but then having lost my last two to hemangio, it is kind of like old episodes of Ben Casey where everyone had a subdural hematoma (IOW, my experience colors my perception but she is running through the diagnostics) what was odd was the amount of blood she aspriated but also commented "no other signs of trauma" and we have no reason to suspect any.

Oy. Toby in 2007, Cyra 2012, I am sure worried about Grimmy bear.

I hope he's ok, Nancy! I understand your worry.

He hasn't had any vaccines lately, has he?

We hope he is OK too. Yes, it is hard not to let the past color our perspective.

wish you luck -- hoping it is just a blood blister which the vet can drain and then put a pressure band on it to prevent it from refilling . could have happened by being whacked by a low sharp branch , running into something - fence board , or a bump in rough play from 'bro' Beau.
