Girl just can't catch a break!
We went to the vet today. Petunia had to get her thyroid rechecked, and Tallulah needed an exam. Mom found some spots on her that needed checking, and she's still not gaining weight like she should given all the food that she's eating.
Good news is that one spot was a sebaceous cyst (no biggie) and one looks like "an old dog spot" according to the vet. It's one that we will watch for growth or shape changes, but not a big deal at the moment.
The bad news was that the spot behind Tallulah's big paw pad was infected. Probably a cut. Then the vet checked her other paw and it had a really weird hole in it. All the black was gone from the toe pad and there was something coming out of the hole in her pad. It was a hole about the size of a pencil lead with tissue squeezing out along with what looked like a string. Ick. Hopefully, it is also an injury. We go back in a week to see how it has healed.
In the meantime, Tallulah is sporting some spiffy bandages.
She is not happy with this development.
She will be happy that she gets to eat beef again! The vet thinks that adding a protein with fat should help her gain some weight and keep it on. As long as her tummy agrees, it's hello beef and goodbye stinky fish!
