My old man dog (10 yrs old), Jimmy Carter, went in today to have a baseball-sized fatty tumor removed from under his belly. Vet confirmed after removal that it was benign (phew!). Since he was going fully under anesthesia, we also went ahead with tooth-cleaning. When they were doing the dental work, they decided to pull seven teeth because they were already so loose (with visible roots).
Poor old guy is going to be sore and grumpy for the next few days. We're going to have quite a time keeping our other dog from getting too rambunctious with him as he's healing. He's also a dog who loves his 2 miles of daily walks, not sure how we're going to change the routine while he's healing to keep him happy.
Anyway, would appreciate all good thoughts for him healing up quickly!
Here are a couple of of pics of Mr. President:
