Everyone's favorite Cow will be undergoing surgery next week. He has a cancerous tumor on his ear. You can thank me for not showing a graphic photo of it. He has been doing so well- eating and drinking and being feisty with Tuffy, but a sore on his ear wasn't healing. When I took him to the vet she took chest x-rays, and a blood test to check his kidney functioning. The good new is the x-rays were clear, and even better is that his creatinine levels are normal, probably due to the subcutaneous fluids regimen. We've actually cut back to once or twice a week as he has seemed fine. The vet can't be sure if the cancer has spread, or promise that it won't or that the tumor won't grow back. But as he doesn't appear in any pain or suffering, we'll take our chances with the surgery and end up with a one-eared cat.
