have any of your cavaliers had this?

i found a small bump right beneath monty's jawline & in one week, it had grown to the size of an eraser on a #2 pencil. it's not quite as red as some of the images i've googled but due to the rapid growth in size, i took him to the vet.

he had surgery today (poor thing has a plastic collar & is just pooped out from the day) to have it removed but i won't know the biopsy results for 3-5 days. i am PRAYING that it is just a histiocytoma and nothing more serious.

The chances are very good that this is all it is. Fingers crossed and try not to worry.

thanks for all the lovely thoughts & warm wishes! i will definitely post once i know what the results are (since the vet has to use an outside lab for the analysis, it'll be 3-5 days).

i guess all i can do in the meantime is to make sure he's comfortable. :D

:jump: yay! monty's biopsy came back clean!

the only thing is that the pathologist said that monty is a little older than dogs he normally sees with these (my vet says says that she's seen them on dogs of all ages) but both recommend keeping an eye out for any in the future.
