Timmy and The Wart

Around Easter, we noticed something.  Something big, something awful, something…gross.  What started as a little speck on Timmy’s hindquarters has, seemingly overnight, evolved into a big, massive, ugly… wart.

We waited a few days hoping it would shrink and disappear, but evidently, this wart had other plans.  To be safe (and also to put an end to the many remarks and stares on the street), we decided to have it checked out at the Annex Animal Hospital.  Apparently, these warts are fairly common, particularly in puppies and young dogs.  Cysts usually appear in the leg-area, as well as around the face.  The location of the wart and Timmy’s age really leaned toward that diagnosis, which would have been great as these types of warts usually disappear on their own.  The vet was a bit concerned however, because it had simply grown so fast.  This type of wart or cyst could have been something quite bad.  Removal would mean surgery!  Nooooooo!

To make sure we had the proper diagnosis, the vet took a number of samples of the cyst cells, and sent them off to a lab.

And the good news?  $400 later and we have negative test results!  Yay!

We all scream for icecream!   Even dogs!

We were in Chatham for the weekend to attend a wedding, and took the opportunity to stop in and get a little frozen treat.  Twirlees is a new icecream truck that parks in front of Pharma Plus, and has some super delicious stuff!   And even better, they give out complimentary Puppy Cones to our furry friends!

Here is a pic of Timmy thoroughly enjoying his treat:
