Timber had surgery today on her tumor. The vet said "it was nasty" - she meant looking - it appears to be some kind of round cell tumor. She did say it was encapsulated and she did not see signs of spread. Pathology report will be 5 working days. Her incision is quite large. It looks great. The tumor was large, went under her muscle, wrapped around her neck and was resting on her carotid artery. Good thing it was removed and after recovery (2 weeks) she will be able to swim and run. she was difficult to get out of the car. She did not want to walk on it. I got some pain medicine in her and at about midnight - she got up on her own and was walking. Need to have her take it easy, hot pack it as she more than likely will get fluid accumulation since the tumor was large and that area is now vacant.
