Miss Maggie (adopted in the Phoenix area 7 + years ago) has a growth on her back "ankle." Biopsy at lab - vet mentioned sarcoma. Prayers that it is localized and can be removed surgically with clean margins. ... See MoreSee Less
Needle Biopsy still not positively conclusive, but suspicious cells - the vet recommends, and we agreed, to have the mass removed. Set for Wed am... and the surgery is under some sort of Dental package, so she gets her teeth cleaned all for one price?!
The biopsy came back as a 'nerve sheath' sarcoma. Low grade and though deep margins were narrow, there are margins. The 'invasive' factor is small and no lymph node involvement. Stitches out in a week if we survive "the Cone!"... it's a watch and wait - I'm so glad I took her in. Thanks for everyone's prayers.

"It is with profound sadness that I make this, in honor and in memory of the love of Nicole's life .. "Triton Augustus Wobbe," who passed on 8/6/2020. He taught many a rescue how to be a proud Airedale. He was brave to the end and oh so beautiful." ... See MoreSee Less
Sir Drew, an 8-year-old Airedale, passes dozens of other dogs on his daily walks near the shores of Lake Michigan. Normally the pets might exchange a friendly sniff, but these days, his owner says, “we just pull back and he gets a firm 'no.’ ”
