Juno had her tail amputated today - she was a trouper! The vet said she did EXCEPTIONALLY well, esp. for such a little old lady.
Juno had a cyst on her tail for over a year, and on her last visit to the vet, it kind of exploded, but we all throught it was fine. She kept licking it, and it got worse, and wouldn't heal - we tried antibiotics, we left it alone and I cleaned it daily with hydrogen peroxide, but alack and alas, it wouldn't heal.
The vet thinks it's fine, but he's doing a biopsy regardless. We LOVE our vet. He's the kind of guy that tells me when I'm being silly, and he has told me when NOT to come in. So we tend to trust him implicitly when he tells us that something SHOULD happen.
So sadly, off her tail went - he says she won't miss it, that it will bug us more than her.
I hope so...
