Fatty Tissue Tumors on Older Dogs – Part II

I cannot complain about this week, well maybe I could, but I am not going to because I got a call from Alex’s vet with great news: Her two little lumps are nothing more than fatty tissue tumors, which according to her vet are quite common in senior dogs.  What a relief!

She did tell me, though, to keep an eye on them and that if they grew at a fast rate to take her back to her office.  She is also going to keep measuring them each time I take Alex for an appointment, which the next one is in about 6 months.

This weekend I’ll take her for walks, as usual, but I’ll get a movie and let her sleep next to me on the couch, since it seems to be what she enjoys a lot.

Thanks a million to all the people that wished Alex well.  You are great!


 My girl, Alex
