Q&H go to the vet

Posted by: Anteaters & Foxes / Category:

Well found a ugly lump on quasi ans had it checked but decided to remove it just to be safe. Then over the weekend found a lump in Hyzzie's chest so brought her along and they were nice and took her in too.

*writen Monday night*

While the tech wasn't trilled with me this morning she did take Hyzzie too and said they would probably check her but no gurantees as she said they were a bit over booked already. I walked them back and put them in the kennels. Neither was happy but Hyzzie didn't understand and was so scared we were leaving her for good. Might just let the tech take her away next time something comes up like that. We ran around and did all our errands and came back around 12. They hadn't done him yet. The vet appolagized but I wasn't trying to rush it just find out if it was worth driving back up the hill or not. She even offered to meet part way in Dexter but in the end Q&H would have to wait longer. Was going to just come back at five when she decided to just do him then and we went off and came back an hour later. She took me in back and Q&H were now together in a kennel. Hyzzie resting her head on Quasi's rump.
I held Hyzzie and she did the needle asperate on her chest lump then we realised she missed the little black mole next to the bigger one so they zipped it off. He was a good boy never even whined then of earlier when they did it. Took them outside after and put them in the car with my dad and went back in and got Quasi's pain meds and paid and waited for the word on Hyzzie's slide. Her's was just a fatty lump. She felt Quasi's black lumps looked good, were easy to remove no margins or anything left so decided not to bother sending it off since the info really wouldn't change anything for me.
However one bit of bad news is Quasi's liver levels are still high. Just the ALT. I know when I had a check up blood pannel done in the past the vet said they were normal but the tests in his records were 2001 one and high. So maybe the vet meant normal for him since he tested the same in the past. I'll have to go over his records and see if I have any info she's missing. He's been doing fine and had all kinds of tests that never found why his level is high so not to worried but will see about adjusting his diet some and maybe try some dandilions again and or milkthistle.
My dad said Hyzzie was a big baby and whined the whole time I was in the vet after. Geez you'd think she was the one all cut up. Quasi had two moles from his arm removed, one from his rump, two from his side and one from his neck. So no more moles now just two benign lumps under his skin.
Actualy I already researched a bit and got a good looking immun stimulant ordered that has milkthistle in it along with the other stuff. Looked into all the ingredients but will start them off real gradule just to be safe since no way to be sure all ingredients combined and individual reactions. Once things settle down more may see about a consult with a natural or holistic vet in Eugene for Quasi.

He is doing great now acts like nothing happened so we've not given him the pain meds.
