I feel so bad for him

Chesty had a lump on his upper abdomen and I took him in yesterday to have it evaluated. They found suspicious cells when they did a needle aspiration so we were back this morning to have it removed and sent for pathology. It’s a large incision and he’s in pain even with meds.

At this point he can’t tolerate being picked up and moved. We used the blanket as a sling to move him into the crate and then Keith carried the crate in the house. We finally got him in and settled by the fire where it’s warm (but not too warm) and he’s sleeping right now. It’s going to be a bad week – I can just tell.


I don’t know what we’re going to do if the pathology report shows a malignancy.

    Poor Chesty. Hope he feels better soon. I am a dog lover so I know how you feel. Will keep Chesty in my thoughts and prayers.

    Prayers for Chesty and for you and Keith. It is so sad to see our loved ones in pain. He looks alittle comfy now. but I know when he wakes up he will be hurting. Poor baby.

    I’m sorry to hear that Chesty is in pain. It is hard for our animal friends to understand why something hurts and it is hard for their human family to not be able to fix things with a snap of a finger. I too will say a prayer for Chesty.

    Prayers for Chesty, you and Kevin … I am choosing to believe this is just a little hurtle and things will be right as rain soon. Hugs to the little fellow for me. Linda

    Poor Chesty – he does look uncomfortable even in his sleep. We do feel the pain of our pets, don’t we? He is lucky to have such a good family with you and Keith. Best wishes for a speedy recovery. Cheers! Evelyn
