Prayers needed *updated*

SFP mom here. Found a large lump on Isabelle's inner back leg. Ping pong ball size. Hard and red. There's a small spot on top of her leg that looks like it could have been a bug bite, so I'm praying that it was just a nasty reaction.

It's not an emergency per se, so I'm waiting until Monday to go to the vet unless something changes. She's still eating, drinking, pottying, walking as normal.

You pug people know how terrifying this is. Your mind automatically goes to cancer. At 14, I don't know that Isabelle would survive the surgery, much less chemo or radiation. And I don't want her to be in any pain or discomfort just because I want her to live a few more months.

So please pray, send positive thoughts, whatever juju you can spare for me and Isabelle. I'm freaking out, and I need to be strong to handle whatever this turns out to be.

Thanks in advance.

Overnight, the mass started bleeding which is never a good sign. We are back from the ER vet who said it is very likely cancer. Isabelle has pain medication and an antibiotic for now. We will be going to our regular vet Monday to come up with a plan.


  1. We have all our paws crossed for Isabelle and sending strong Pug POTP.
    prayers and hugs

  6. Oh no, Isabelle! I'm just seeing this and am not happy about your trip to the ER. I am praying that your regular vet has a plan and has a positive prognosis. And I know it's not too late to pray for a healing - for that bump to go away as quickly as your mom noticed it! Please keep us updated when you can.
    Lots of love,
