Have just taken my piggy Badger to the CCT as i had found a couple of lumps on him. :( Vedra has checked him over and said she feels sure the one lump is a benign tumour and the other a small cyst. He is to have an operation tomorrow to remove them both. It was horrible driving back without him :( I hope he will be ok.

He is such a lovely, friendly piggy. When I left him he was chattering away to Vedra! :)

Good luck with Badger - hope all goes well. One of mine, Toffee, had a huge operation to remove lumps earlier this year, she had a massive wound all down her tummy - she was fine afterwards, just needed lots of TLC. Got everything crossed for you both.

He has a noddy head when he walks - he tilts it to the side too but Vedra doesn't think its anything to worry about - she says it gives him character which it does :) No news yet!

My mum text Vedra asking if he has had it and she said that the vet is so busy with emergency operations that he won't have his till Monday! Don't know what to do - will see if we can go down and get him and take him back on Sunday or something!

It's bad enough having to wait on the day, but to have to wait until Monday is really difficult. Good sign though in that it's not an emergency.

We knew it wasn't an emergency - its just so frustrating cos she said it would be either be done today or tomorrow morning. If we had known it was Monday, we would have brought him back and took him down nearer the time. Grrr - Goggles is really missing him!

Yes must be really frustrating - as you say, you could have kept him at home until the op.

Monday, that's almost over a week :-\
Are you near enough to go and pick him up?
