We are leaving at 7:00 am to take him to big fancy doggie hospital. His Opthamologist is removing the cyst blocking his nasal passage. I posted some time ago that we had a consult with this Doctor. We kept an eye on it, so to speak and it is gradually getting larger. We also want to send it out for a biopsy just to be on the safe side.

He will come home around dinner tonight with an E collar which I know he will hate. Unforunately, the towel collar or neckbrace style collar is not recommended for surgery above the head.

I am asking for prayers and drool for my boy. He is my special guy who I just adore!! I'll post an update later.

It's in the corner where his eye looks slightly swollen:

Sending lots of prayers your way. Let us know how he does.

I hope he doesn't have to stay over night ...does he ...?

Oh, dear, poor you. Poor Rusty. I know he'll be fine, but I also know that until you get him home, you're going to be worried. So until then

Awww, Poor Rusty!

I havent been keeping up too well with the hound news, and I'm sorry to see that he had to have surgery! Hopefully he will be up and at 'em before too long.

Elmer and Button slinging plenty of healing drool your way!
