    Great news, the lump somehow disappeared. Still went to the vets though to make sure and she didn't find anything. He weighed in at 47.4 lbs, which hasn't changed much since he started on raw. Heartbeat good, skin good, well ... typical allergy-prone white bulldog good, eyes good and teeth good.

    Really like this vet. We wanted to get him heartworm tested but she admitted that it was best to do it only annually because it takes 7 months for them to be detectable so it wasn't needed. If we were to go somewhere else, they'd go ahead without hesitation. The clinic's a big raw fan and recommends the natural route before the conventional kind. But, of course, if an owner wanted conventional meds, then the vet will prescribe no problem.

    Booked an appt for Punkin ... really hoping that, with the exception of allergies, he's as healthy as can be.

    That's a relief! I'm so glad Stig's doing so well. Sounds like you have a vet who really knows her stuff!

    YAY!!! Good for Stiggy. What a relief .

    I am glad to hear that your vet leans more toward the natural route. Mine are good like that too. It feels good to be able to discuss things and know they aren't going to just jump to meds or something unless absolutely necessary. Even with Gypsy's mange, mine said she would get past it and only just gave me a cream since it wasn't widespread.

    Whew! Thanks for the update. I've been wondering how that went. It was probably one of those fatty masses that appear and then disappear, usually without ever being noticed. I am happy and grateful that everything's good with your boy!
