Mollie has been a bit under the weather for the last few months, with bouts of sickness followed by being fine.
Blood tests earlier in the week were ‘unremarkable’ – the vets words not mine – but he wanted her to have X-rays and an endoscopy today.
We picked her up at 5pm. The vet thinks she has a tumour in her stomach wall. Or actually more accurately in the muscle behind the stomach wall. This isn’t stomach cancer as that’s very obvious apparently, and the lump could be cancer or could be benign.
He’s referring her to a specialist clinic attached to the University of Bristol for a CT Scan and possible operation.
I feel very philosophical as I trust him implicitly and feel that he would not refer her, as an older dog, for expensive and complicated medical treatment if he didn’t think it was worth it.
But I’ve let Pet Plan know! Thank goodness I’ve always had her on the top premium and she’s insured for up to £12,000 worth of veterinary treatment!
She’s home and very woozy. We hope to have her referral quite quickly.
Keep her in your thoughts. x
