I took Suzie to the vet on Monday because she has a lump on her side near her front leg. The vet said it will need removing, and so she’s at the vet’s surgery right now. She’ll need an X-ray and blood tests to find out if she’s OK for a general anaesthetic, and then if all is well the lump will be removed this afternoon.
The removed growth will go to the lab for testing. I’m hoping that it’s benign, because malignant cancer growths are the main cause of death in cats and Suzie has been with us ever since we moved in together over five years ago. Best of luck with the operation, Suzie.
