Paw Power, Please?

TKMom here.
We took Squashies to the Vet on Thursday night.  She had clear fluid trickling from her black ear.  This wasn't a total panic, she's had this before.  Apparently, before she came to be our little girl, she had a really bad ear-mite episode which left her canals pretty scarred.  But when the Vet looked in, she saw a 'growth', which she later called a mass, which she said would require surgery to remove.

The doctor said she couldn't tell exactly what it was, because of the swelling in Squashies' canal.  So I'm going to give her drops q2 for 1 week. This to bring the swelling down so the mass can be inspected properly.

Squashies is such a good little girl, and she's had a very hard life.  It just seems totally unfair that now that she's found a little happiness that this would happen.  She could sure use some good vibs.

  30. I'm hoping that Squashies "growth/mass" is nothing serious. My Grady, who went to the Bridge in 2007 and looked an awful lot like you, TK, had a "growth" in his neck and the vet said it was bad. Turned out after they removed it, it was only some fatty tissue that was nothing... benign, and Grady lived many years after that. So, I'm hoping the same for Squashies.

  41. Oh dear Squashies, we are sending you big, big, mega purrs and prayers for healthy ears, for the medication to work and for all to be resolved with ease. (*Note for TKMom from Cloon's Human: Clooney came with an object down his right ear and a very bad case of mites, he had an inflamed spot on his eardrum and baytril worked to quiet it down, we just monitor it on-going so maybe Squashies might not have to have surgery?)
