The hits just keep coming here at Spirit Animal Sanctuary and considering all the time and money we have been spending to finish our animal house,this is really shitty timing.
A couple of weeks ago we received a 10 year old female Shepherd mix named Cassidy, because the owner had passed away. She’s a little overweight but after watching her walk, she had the typical old dog gait, but something was a little off.
In these circumstances where a dog walks a little funny the first thing I check is the feet, legs and hind quarters. It was the inside of her thigh that I discovered a rather large lump that must of been there for quite some time.
She has an appointment with Countryside Veterinary Clinic in Lowville, New York this Monday. It always makes me a little nervous when older dogs are going to need a surgical procedure.
