Thor


Thor has had a lot of cysts breaking open lately - 3 in the last 6 weeks. Most worrisome, he had several under his tail, one of which was looking pretty bad.

So, today he went in for surgery to remove all of them. We just got the call from the vet that they're all removed, he came out of the anesthesia just fine, and can come home tomorrow. I don't know that Thor counted on camping away from home, but they love him at this veterinary clinic.

I just wanted you all to know that our boy had a little problem, but everything's on the mend now.

OH poor poor Thor! Glad all went well... I'm sure he will be well treated but he will be so happy to be back home with you tomorrow.
All the best to Thor :))

Thanks for the post. I know how worrisome anesthesia is with giant dogs in general, but a senior giant dog, even worse. Sounds like Thor came through with his usual dignity. Guess he will have some shaved spots.

Give him super smoochies from me and the gang.

Margi you must miss him as much as he misses you. Glad he will soon be home. Anesthetic is not nice when you you are getting a little long in the tooth! Take care Thor. Diane

Good to hear he's doing well. I always think it's cute when dogs lay with their front legs crossed.

Ironically, Sissy and I thought of Thor and his cysts yesterday. We met a delightful bull terrier named Riley at the vet, and he was there with a ruptured cyst on his leg...

Just rest and heal big guy. You'll be home before you know it.

We're glad that Thor is cyst free and will be feeling better soon. Mom gets upset about those cyst things and likes to get them taken care of. Give him a pat from each of us. That's ten in all.
