Last Friday evening I noticed that my beautiful dog Coco had a lump on his left eyelid, and that he was blinking just that eye, quite quickly. On Saturday I took him to see a Vet at the Annandale Animal Hospital; there it was diagnosed as a tumour and will have to be removed as soon as possible.
At 8 am on Wednesday I have to deliver him into the hands of the veterinary surgeon who will remove this tumour, send it away for a biopsy; after which I must wait for the result as to whether it is malignant or not.
I’m dreading leaving him at the hospital, I know he will be terribly upset; when I drop him off at Orange Dogs for his beauty treatment I hear him ‘crying’ wimpering after I leave, and he’s there in company with other puppies and he has plenty to occupy him, but at the hospital I believe he will be kept in a holding pen whilst waiting his surgery.
Coco is what is called a rescue dog, and before I got him he was caged 23 hours a day 7 days a week, I know he will be frightened that I have dumped him. I shall see if I can stay with him until the time comes for when they need to work on him.
I’m feeling very down, I know my dog is going to be very frightened.
