During a checkup a while ago, the vet found a growth on Tobi's gums. Once we were aware of it, we noticed that when she was playing she would accidently bite it and make it bleed, so we knew it had to go. So she went into surgury yesterday, and everything went good. The vet tech said it's the only dog she's seen who slept through an IV insertion. Snoring, no less. When we picked her up she was as spry and happy as ever, as if nothing had happened. Here's a suitably gross before and after picture of her gums:
The growth is that strawberry looking thing in the center of the top picture. And below, it's totally gone! Tada!
