Sydney needs good thoughts

Hi everyone,

My old gal Sydney (13 1/2) is in need of prayers & good thoughts. I just found a large growth on her upper gumline last night. I am taking her to the Vet first thing on Monday morning. I had noticed a change in the way her breath smelled, but I only just checked her last night. I feel terrible for not seeing this sooner! I am usually good about checking her regularly. Her appetite, activity and behavior haven't changed. She is acting fine & her mouth doesn't seem to hurt. I have taken a picture, but I will have to post later since I am at work right now.

I feel that I am in for some bad news, but I'm trying to stay positive.
Good thoughts please!
Kristina

Re: Sydney needs good thoughts

Ah, Kristina. I hope Sydney is ok. My first dog had that and it ended up being an infection that was easily treatable. Hopefully that's all it is with Sydney.

Re: Sydney needs good thoughts

Thank you all for the good thoughts. I am posting a picture of the growth. (also her teeth are very overdue for a cleaning!)



I'll let everyone know what happens on Monday.

Re: Sydney needs good thoughts

Oh my goodness-that is weird. It looks like it's all encapsulated in that little area?

Let us know on Monday for sure.

Update/Re: Sydney needs good thoughts

Well, everyone, it is not good news today. Not only is the growth in her mouth most likely malignant, but the area in her lungs that was observed in Aug '07 has doubled in size. She has also lost weight. I feel so sick over my Sydney-girl today! She is still in great spirits and is not showing any symptoms, but it's only a matter of time. So I will be spoiling her as much as I can. On the way home I bought her 2 McD's hamburgers...her favorite! I'll be awaiting bloodwork results which should be in tomorrow. I guess the good thing is that the lung mass is slow growing, but I think the oral mass will be her problem. It is at a high probability of bleeding and causing trouble. Right now surgery doesn't seem to be feasible.

Please keep Sydney in your thoughts and prayers. My goal is to keep her happy & pain-free as long as I possibly can.

Kristina

Kristina,

I am SO sorry to hear about Sydney's lungs and the mass in her mouth.
Please give her a big hug for me. I hope she continues to feel well.
