Today we booked Shadow in for another small op. :(
The day after we started antibiotics due to infection from her last op (about 5 weeks ago) I noticed a small lump on her lower lip. At first I thought it was a blister or some sort of reaction to the meds. We had it looked at by the vet. He said he didn't think it was related to the meds at all, and if he were to biopsy it, he may as well remove it it was so small. He didn't want to do anything immediately because she's just had an op and it wasn't bothering her. Well it grew. It looks like a wart or a mole. About a week ago it bleed a little when she was playing, then a couple of days ago she must have taken the top off it whilst at the beach, it seamed much smaller but still yuck. We booked her in to see the vet today and have decided it has to go. She will be going under next friday to have the whole thing removed and they will send it off to the lab.
Fingers crossed it's nothing to be too concerned about.
