Wynston is undergoing surgery on Monday, April 2nd to have a lipoma removed. While lipomas are common, especially in dogs such as Labradors, I’m not comfortable with how quickly it’s grown. So what is a lipoma, and why am I choosing to have it removed?
It finally happened. After nine weeks of X-rays and 11 vet appointments, my son got his cast taken off! The journey wasn’t easy or enjoyable, and I’m SO glad it’s over. Wynston appeared to become depressed toward the end of these nine weeks, so needless to say we were both ready to get back to normal life.
I can’t believe it’s already been about three weeks since Wynston broke his foot. We’re already on cast number four – only about four or five more to go. Our veterinarian believes that Wynston’s foot should be healing properly, but we did run into an issue when Wyn’s leg became irritated from his cast this week.
It’s been two weeks since Wynston broke his foot in El Paso, TX. Since then, we got back into town, had his foot casted and have adjusted to life with three fully-capable Chihuahua legs. The experience hasn’t been nearly as treacherous as I would have guessed, but it’s still proven to be quite the life experience.
Today Wynston had a new cast put on, as he needs to get it reapplied every week for the next five weeks or so. As he’s rocking the new hot pink look, here’s an update on how’s he’s doing!
“Wynston is awake from anesthesia, and recovering. Surgery went well.” The words every pet parent wants to hear. I got the call around 11am from Dr. Knott, one of the amazing veterinarians at Oasis Animal Hospital. I had dropped Wynston off at 7:30am for dental surgery, and I couldn’t wait to have him back in my arms. “You can pick him up at 1 o’clock.” I pulled into the parking lot at 12:57.
