Update on Gus

Update on Gus

Phil-the-Vet phoned to tell us that the tumour is benign and should ‘drop off’ (highly technical term!) in two or three months. Much relief all round.


Meanwhile, not to be outdone, Frodo the Faller developed a strange patch on his head. I thought it was food but when I cleaned it I discovered that he had grazed his head. He has a habit of investigating the dishes in the dishwasher when I’m stacking it and I can only think he caught the top of his head on the upper arm of the machine. The patch doesn’t seem to bother him and the other animals haven’t investigated it so I don’t think it’s anything to worry about. It actually looks better today. There was slight swelling there but that has reduced. Yesterday we thought we would have to take him to the vet but now I think it will get better on its own.

  1. "Drop off." Highly technical indeed!

  2. Glad Gus is okay!! I take two of my three in for dental cleanings this week. Always hate having them put under anesthesia.

    1. I hope they will recover quickly. Some dogs have odd reactions to anaesthetics.
