Benji is very poorly

Its been a worrying day . We took Benji tot he vets this morning, he was shaved to see if there were any signs externaly that would cause the swelling. That was negative. The vet then did an xray which showed up areas of pus but no foreign bodies. He has been given an injection a bit like a cortosoid. the vet thinks there is a slight chance it may be a tumour but as Benji is young he thinks its highly unlikely. The vet at this moment in time has no idea what has caused him to be so poorly. He had his usual run around on Friday and then Saturday afternoon we noticed the lump and we just dont know why .

This afternoon he has gone down hill rapidly. concerning us so much that V has taken him back to the vets. The swelling is increasing he has not eaten or drunk since last night. At one point he lay behind the front door and stayed motionless for a few hours. I honestly thought he had died.

WE are trying not to alarm the kids. D has already asked if he is going to die like Angus did. WE said no Angus was an old dog.

Fingers crossed he is going to be ok.

Good on you for being so positive Mandy, it shows great strength on your part, hang in there.

As for Benjii, poor wee soul, sounds like he's really going through it. We'll keep everything crossed that he makes a speedy recovery.

Thinking of you...
