    Default Great News Today at the Vet!

    Last weekend we found a mass under one of Mabel's nipples. Again I thought that I was over my head with the care this dog requires. We made an appointment with the bulldog vet and just got back a little while ago. He was able to aspirate it and pulled out some really foul-looking fluid. When he looked at it under a microscope, it was white blood cells and bacteria. It turns out it's just a cyst that has abscessed! We are so relieved that there were no cancerous or pre-cancerous cells and that it can be treated with antibiotics! I had no idea how much I was worrying until he said it was an infection. After we saw the vet, we carefully tested her with another dog--a Shih Tsu (?). She was unimpressed, but did try to grab the dog's tail when the lady picked her up. Oops! We treated Mabel to a visit to Chowhound, where we picked up some Fromm's and tried to entice her with a toy. She was totally disinterested until she discovered, and almost destroyed the Kong display. We'll try a Kong and see if she "gets it." She had fun at the store, met some new people friends, and didn't want to leave.

    SO glad that Mabel only had a minor irritation!!! Mr Chunks can be picky about his toys too, but he LOVES his Kongs, esp. if they have treats inside!!

    Yeah! Great news! We put peanutbutter in Guinness' kong and freeze it....keeps him busy for awhile. I've also frozen pumpkin in there and yogurt on occasion. He also loves his treat ball. Does Mabel have one of those?

    So happy she just had an infection. Plus sounds like she had fun at the store. Our bullies like Kongs too.

    Thanks, guys! We put some stuffing in the Kong and she loved it, but couldn't figure out how to stabilize it enough to get the filling out. I had to hold it for her.

    Phew!!! I am sure I will be prematurely grey from these fur-kids!!!! Yes try a Kong .. only because you can fill them full of yummy stuff!!! Daddy, in paticular, will chew on his and make a squeaky noise...then when you look closely it can't really be described as "chewing" .. it's more like he's mouthing it and he can fall asleep doing that!!
