Hi all. So my rottweiler, Tink, got 'diagnosed' (as much as a dog can) a couple months back with a flat fatty tumor on one of her ankles (or hocks, whatever). The doc said that if it got bigger, we'd have to bring her in again and get it removed. Back then it was tiny, but now it looks like this: Here's a comparison shot of the one with the fatty tumor vs. the one without: It's hard to tell because it's more about depth than size, but it's wayyyy bigger than when we last took her to see the vet. I've been nagging at dad to get on it and see when our vet would be in but he's kept putting it off and now he finally sees how worrying it is. It doesn't seem to inconvenience her in any way, but better safe than sorry. He's gonna call the vet in the next couple days and see when our vet will be in. My guess is he'll want to remove it. I'm hoping it's just a fatty tumor and not anything malicious. Tink's doing pretty good otherwise, she's about 9 and a half, and other than being a little bit sore sometimes, she still plays like a puppy. She loves her squeaky toys, her favorite is a little cow with a Santa hat that I got her for the Christmas before last. She still loves eating biscuits and going outside. If left to her own devices outside, on a nice day she'll gladly lay in the backyard, watching the world go by and sniffing the air. She's doing good for such an old pup. I just hope she's doing as okay as we think she is.
