Throwback Thursday: Life With Missing Parts

Both of the dogs have decided that life is more fun without all of their organs intact.  It was an expensive & traumatic decision for them to make.

In 2012, Tucker had a tumor on his spleen that ruptured.  It was incredibly traumatic, sending him into surgery not knowing if he would come back out alive.  We were fortunate, not only that he survived the surgery, but also that the tumor ended up to be benign (non-cancerous)!

Last year, our veterinarians found a liver mass on Emmit.  After going through the trauma with Tucker, we felt surgery was necessary, so we sent him to a surgeon to have a liver lobe removed.  Suprise, his was ALSO benign. Prior to surgery, Emmit had some pretty awful liver values.  As of right now, the tumor has not returned & his values look good.

Here’s to a LONG life with missing parts & amazing veterinarians who make it possible!
