Phantom over at ♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ is having some issues with lumps and bumps he has on his tail. Phantom is a senior pal and there is limited solutions to his problems because anesthetics would not be good for him.
This is copied from his blog
Barking about things being big, one of those two nasty cherries on my poor tail has been growing and growing and decided to burst overnight. I won't show it to you because it is really pretty scary-looking. Mom is trying to doctor it the best she can until tomorrow when we hope my nice vet pal Dr. B. can work another miracle. This is one of the big problem ones because there isn't any really good option for removal. Keep me in your thoughts as I could use all the good vibes there are.
This is from today
My sweet boy Phantom is just so brave. Dr. B. wanted to try to use cryotherapy and freeze the tumor that burst to see if he could kill off enough of the tissue to stop the bleeding. That is the area that you see in the photos above that is bright red. This doesn't remove the tumor nor does it prevent it from regrowing, but the hope is that we stop the bleeding. The large mass above that is going to burst soon as well. He could have helped that one along, but we decided to leave it alone and see if the cryotherapy would work on the smaller one first. The very top mass is a regrowth of the one that burst about a year ago that is now rapidly regrowing. Sigh, it never ends.
This handsome boy needs our POTP, crossed paws and prayers.
