As some of you on facebook will know, I found a big lump under pIP'S chin last night. Col took him to the vet today and thankfully she does not think that it's anything too major. He's had antibiotics and an anti inflammatory and we're to monitor it for the next three weeks. If it does not go away it will probably have to be surgically removed.
Poor Pip is covered in dried blood but is being very brave
For the benefit of anyone that doesn't already know, Pip died in the early hours of this morning. He survived the surgery, but was to weak to fully recover from it. There are no words to express how I feel!
Yeah. I keep wondering if there's anything we could have done differently but I really don't see that there could have been. We took him to the vet as soon as the lump appeared, we were going to take him again after the Bank Holiday weekend as it had grown, we called the vet when it burst and were told not to take him down just then unless it got worse and when it got worse we DID take him down. I don't see what we could have done differently but I still keep wondering
I heard a bird cry, sharp and free. My name is Jordan.
