No idea really Michelle, some kind of growth though. Hope you manage to get to the bottom of it at the vets, and its nothing sinister.

spoke to my sis in law who was a vet nurse for 5 years and is hoping to get back in to it, (she moved from Essex to the Island and had to leave)
she thinks it a tumour, will see this week, but biccy had a hugh abcess removed about 18 months ago and recovered so well, bless him, will let you know

well the vet said as i thought not cyst or abcess but a skin lump its not cancerous and very mobile as he can get his finger behind it, but as its just had a growth spirt he thinks it needs removing as it has started to ulcerate, he said well I removed an abcess from biccys shoulder now he wants his butt done think he wants remodelling he is such a nice vet, hes booked in for thursday morning but we go away for a long weekend friday when I pick him up so am going to try to change his op tomorrow so I can be here for his after care, other wise Stuart my eldest is here and quite capable but i will worry while away.

LOL aww, the poor darling. So it was a tumour? Have heard of fibreplex but never used it love.
If he's eating, then like you said I don't think he needs to take it either.

Maybe they gave it you in case? :)

yes it was a tumor but Mr Philips said it did'nt look anything sinister I was asked if I wanted it analized but to be honest if it was sinister it could grow back again and it could take a while to do so and he would be getting on in age, and theres nothing he can do if it is anyway, so as long as it was removed and not able to ulcerate anymore i'm happy with that,
I have given him a dose of the pre/pro biotic( I read the box) he actually liked it so its not doing him any harm so will do as suggested, they did give me some critical care food but he hopefully wont need it,

biccys got the all clear from the vet as far as the op went, what the lump was I'm not too bothered just so long as its gone and he is now 100% better .if it comes back we will just have to deal with it then, :)
