Our pet of the month for July is Skye!
Skye is a 9 year old Siberian Husky cross who came to us when her owner noticed one of her nipples had become enlarged. On inspection Jeremy found multiple masses on both sides of her body, many suggestive of mammary tumours. Skye was booked in for further investigation where we took blood samples and chest x-rays to look for possible metastases. Thankfully, there was no evidence of any, so we removed the four masses on one side of her tummy, and allowing those wounds to heal for a few weeks before taking off four from the other side! She must be getting used to the attention, as she now lies on her back for Jeremy to look at her stitches when she comes into the consulting room. What a sweetie she is!
