Charlie’s results

27 Apr

The vet just called.

The tumor’s a fatty deposit. Whew.

But he may be hypothyroid. Great.

It’s another $125 to run the thyroid panel, but I don’t have an option.

Normal levels are 1-4 on the Free T4 test and he had a .3.

Back to the vet we go.

    Great news. I can’t count the fatty tumors my various dogs have had through the years. Paws crossed for more good news.

    Yay for fatty deposits. (Well, ‘yay given the alternatives’.) Not so yay on the labs, but hopefully everything will turn out okay. We’ll keep our paws crossed!

    I hope everything checks out okay. Makes me appreciate my young dog a little more. I will probably be a wreck when she’s older too. I need to teach her the jump through arms trick, and weave through legs. Maybe this summer
    Take care

    Poor Charlie. I am glad the tumour checked out fine but talk about stress!

    I hope you all are doing really well now and are on the road to recovery! How is your training going? Have you been able to fit anything in with all this going on? *hugs*
