Baxter’s Big Scary Day

Keep a good thought for this guy. Baxter is having surgery Friday to remove a tumor from his leg. We’ll all be glad to see it go. We’ve been operating under the hypothesis that it was a sebaceous cyst – not at all uncommon in an older dog – but it got suspicious-looking this summer. We’ll have it biopsied, too.

Anesthesia gets a little dicier as dogs and cats get older, and Baxter is around 13. But we’re counting on picking him up Saturday morning!
