    Default Butcher or Vet?

    Poor Griz, gonna be a long 14 days til those stitches come out. you seen the blob on his neck, here is then end result. I'm a little bothered by the size of this. ? Jeeshhh Is it just me???? 10 stitches and a flat sack. I bet he hates me.
    (I'm starting to hate me. )
    Thoughts..... or am I just a little over protective and worried about his physical appearance, shoot, I'm really worried about the

    oh my!! What did they determine it was? Could it have grown inside where they had to cut that much open?

    he is such a handsome boy -- it fur will cover it all up when his coat grows back. as long as he is healthy!

    They didn't tell me a thing yet. Just that it cost $662
    Believe me I asked what the deal was with the incision. The girl at the counter couldn't tell me a thing. But had the nerve to call me at 9:07 last evening after I picked him up (not to check up on him) but to tell me she missed $40 from last week when we were there to just look at the growth.
    I'm shopping around, Jack is due for vaccines in November

    Oh hell no! That is so unprofessional and uncaring.

    Banks just has poo issues and Dr. Rossi called us yesterday and today to check up on her. He is calling not the office... wish you lived closer so you could go to him

    Wow! The only thing I can say is my cat had an immunization cancer at the site of her shots. It was a small little knot..and she was cut from one side to the other. I was horrified AND my vet warned me. In her case it was to test margins and she was tiny so the incision and stitches were massive! She survived..which I have since found out is very rare..unless your vet suspects a malignancy..that looks huge to me! But..my cat healed just fine and no scar at all! I know Griz will be fine...but I also felt horrible. When do they get results back? My cat cost about $700 8 years ago! I feel your pain on many levels!

    Thank you for the input. It helps alot. I didn't know they could get cancer from injection sites either. Like you said, rare.
    As for when the results come back? your guess is as good as mine. I got no info no matter what who when i asked. calling everyday til i get satisfaction.

    Their lack of customer service and professionalism is stunning! They know exactly how many days it takes to get back results! I might go in there and ask to speak to office manager! Of course..in all honesty..I have been "fired" by a vet before for JUST this type of behavior.. but I didn't give a rats a**!

    That's exactly what I was thinking!

    Several years ago my 15 year old Peek a Poo had a massive tumor removed from her side. It was almost the size of a softball so of course the incision was HUGE... there were about 50 staples & a drain tube. The vet called me at home, from his home, on a Sunday afternoon to give me the test results. Unless it was a fistula, I can't see why the incision was that big. I had a lump removed from my armpit many years ago, and it was just a lump on the surface, but underneath was a 7 inch fistula in the tissue. So anything's possible. But in all honesty, it seems like that's a pretty crappy vet. I'd tell them they'll get their missed $40 when you get some answers. Well, that's not true. I'm touched with a little bit of the crazy when it comes to my kids and pets, so I'd probably tell them a little more than that... but that's just me.

    WOW on the vet not telling you what they think it was. Are they sending a sample out for a biopsy? Did the vet not even talk to you when you picked poor Griz up or is he suppose to call you later. I have to say I'm a bit stunned by the lack of communication, especially with a surgery just performed. My vets, none of them, have ever not called me the moment they were done. I always knew something before I picked up Ace and then most the time I had consults with either the vet that performed the surgery or another vet that was familiar with what was done. Poor Griz!! I'm with @JAKEISGREAT, I'd be pitching a fit with them. to you both.

    Glad Griz is OK, and I too would be furious with that vet, very unprofessional. I would stay on them until they give you some answers. Then find another vet. Once the incision heals and the hair grows back you won't even know it's there. Give him a big hug from us and hope he heals fast.

    I just wanted to say that Griz is such a sweetheart. He looks good given what he's just gone thru. I know there's still the healing to go through and the waiting game as far as diagnosis, but hang in there Sherry. Lots of hugs and smooches to you and Griz
