Treatment Cost (USD): $590.00
Landry’s mass has been present for a long time. It had gotten to a point that it was opening and leaking. The only way to resolve the mass was to remove it. It was a skin mass likely an overactive gland issue. If not removed I always worry about infection and parasites (like maggots) inhabiting it. Best to remove it while it’s small and not bothering him.

Lilly is an older lab with a history of allergies. When her ears flared up (redness and itching), she began to shake her head.

Radio-iodine Treatment For Hyperthyroidism In A Bombay Cat. Meet Bica.
Treatment Cost (USD): $1700.00
Bica was brought to me because her parents were concerned about her weight loss and muscle wasting. She was about 12 when first diagnosed. Most hyperthyroid cats are active (or over active), have a voracious appetite and even though they seem to be eating an adequate amount they continue to lose weight and muscle. Many cats are presented very thin and some even become so ravenous they start to become aggressive about food, or even around people. Bica's parents noticed her subtle signs very early on. She is a very loved and very lucky kitty.

Nasopharyngeal Polyp Exploratory Surgery. Inky Was Suspected To Have A Nasopharyngeal Polyp And His Vet…
Treatment Cost (USD): $605.00
Inky was a rescued feral kitten. From the time his family found him he had what seemed to be an upper respiratory infection (which is very common in feral kittens). After multiple rounds of antibiotics there was little change in his snoring/snorting nasal noises. After doing some research they wondered if he might have a nasopharyngeal polyp? They asked their vet about the possibility? Their vet wanted to send them to a specialist for this. They could not find anyone locally to look and help them with Inky in a price range that was affordable.
Two Shots In One Day (Lepto + Lyme) Made Stella A Very Sick Pup!
Treatment Cost (USD): $297.50
We had already had the first round for both the Lepto shot and the Lyme vaccine (each done on separate visits), so this visit was to our regular vet to have the second round of both done together. In retrospect, we realize it was just too much in a day (she also got groomed right before it), but apparently she was also having an allergic reaction to the Lyme shot (in a previous story I posted, I mentioned how the first round had made her sick). After her visit to the vet, she seemed ok and the vet was great with everything. However, an hour or two later she was repeatedly vomiting and really worrying us. Our regular vet's clinic had closed already for the day, so we decided to take her for a visit to a local emergency clinic.
