Athena is cancer free!

What a huge relief.  Athena is okay!  She had the lump removed and it’s benign.  It was really hard waiting for news especially after losing Bosco to cancer.


Athena needed two teeth removed and we had no idea.  So I’m glad this happened.  She had bone loss because of her teeth and she must have been in pain.

She did end up with GI issues a few days later but our vet gave us some meds and she was on the mend.  Then a few days after that, the incision where the lump was got infected.  Luckily my vet just needed to see a photo and she gave Athena a broad spectrum antibiotic.  She is still finishing those meds but it looks much better.  Hum… I wonder what cause the infection?  🤢.   (As a side note, cold water is the way to go when cleaning up after pups with GI issues.  Apparently hot water was a bad idea because it sets those kinds of stains.  🤦‍♀️).
