My dog's surgery is tomorrow. Nervous!!
I've posted on here before about my 8-year-old pug mix needing a biopsy on a tiny, slightly raised black scab right next to his anus. He's had it for a couple years and it never seemed to bother him. Anyway, I'm so anxious! They're doing blood work and a thorough exam to ensure he can handle the anesthesia (the vet said it's very light anesthesia since it's such a small mark). I still can't help but freak out... There are a couple other things I want the vet to look at but all I can think of is the dreaded "C word." All I ask is that it's nothing and if it IS cancer, I just hope it's something that can be fixed so I can have many more years with my sweet baby boy. Melanoma is an aggressive cancer, so I keep telling myself if he's had it for this long and is still active and affectionate with a healthy appetite, then he's probably OK. Anyway, I'm rambling here,but long story short: I'm freaking out about my dog going under, and I'm freaking out about getting the results. Any words of comfort would be so appreciated.
