I took Boo-Boo to the vet yesterday. He has had a "Fat Pad" that has somewhat solidified. He has gone from 187 in like Oct of last year to the 150's. He looks so much older now than 1/2 a year ago, especially if I put him next to BJ who is only a year younger. He acts fine, does not eat as much, and seems to be in no pain.
The vet is supposed to remove the mass and have it tested next Monday.
My question's are-
The vet is concerned how Boo will handle the anesthesia at his age. Anyone have any experience there?
Should I risk the surgery? If it is cancer what are his odds with or with out it, given his age?
What else should I be aware of?
Sorry, I am just kind of numb right now...

Hopefully, the experienced members will chime in with their thoughts on the surgery and possible cancer survival rates.

I wish him a speedy recovery and that he remains pain free. ((HUGS))

Prayers are coming your way for Boo-Boo - let's hope Suz gets on and gives you some advise -

How old is Boo-Boo - I didn't see his age mentioned anywhere - and has your vet been taking care of your kids for long -

We're all guessing and it might not be cancer and then the vet can get in and out fast - Please think positive -

Please do. That is what I am looking for and it may be of help to others too.

Boo will be 9 next Thursday.
This is one of several vets I have used, one I feel comfortable with.

if it were me. i would first make sure its not an abdominal surgery because the blood loss will kill him. so as long as its not and your vet is experienced with isoflurin gas the only one to use as its safest. it would be worth traveling to a very experienced glider vet like dr tristan or dr bradley.

She has she will be using Sevoflurane if I read it right.
The paper says Sevoflurane Adjustment, and then Anestesia Inhalent right underneath that on the estimate?
I will get a new picture of the mass and it's location tonight and post it.
Thank you.....Pat

While the estimate says Sevoflurane I am pretty sure she said isoflurane when she was in the room with me. I will confirm this tomorrow

i hadn't thought of that. this may be something you should check into,pat.doesn't dr bradley live in ks,& that isn't too awfully far from you,is it?
please let us know what you think on this. even if your vet is a good one,if he doesn't really know this procedure very well,it would be great for him & you to be talking to either vet.
my vet,before sissie died,did confer w/tristan quite abit.
once she had died,though,he would no longer see gliders,no matter how much i pleaded w/him to continue on w/helping me w/cosmos. but he was firm,a no ment no. the only thing i could have come up w/on this was that evidently he wasn't as knowledgeable as we thought,& he didn't want anymore babies to die under his care.
