He is at the emergency vet clinic awating an internal medicine evaluation.
He has has some hacking the last few months...the regular vet thought it was just his allergies. He also has gotten more fatty tumors and they seem to be growing faster, so when he..who lives for food, snacks, etc....wouldn't eat a couple of mornings, I sent him with spouse back to vet. She took samples of three of the lumps and said yes, fatty tumors.. stop worrying. His appetite was back so she did not pull blood. Then Sunday he was lame on the right front... hum..... then he popped a large hematoma like lump...which we watched..until Monday...then took him in. He is now not clotting and has bled a large volume of blood into his chest..not obviously outside of the chest cavity as he can breath fine. The xrays showed a gassy area in his chest area...maybe an infection or fungal infection.... and the lungs looks spotty..not quite right. My husband is a wreck. Is supposed to go away tomorrow for a two day conference and is thinking of cancelling. Please send jungles that they can stabilize the bleeding and clear him up long enough to come home to have a month or two being spoiled.
