Mass in abdomen


Post   » Tue Oct 24, 2017 8:47 pm

A checkup today revealed that there's some kind of mass in Abby's abdomen; a brief ultrasound was done. She's a spade pig so ovarian cysts are out.
She has no pain, she is happy, active, and doing all her normal things. We could have exploratory surgery now; but since it's risky we hesitate to do that because this may be a benign problem. We could wait a couple months and see if any symptoms show up and decide then. Even the vet is on the fence at this point.

I contacted the rescue to get more specific info on her surgery; why she needed it and what exactly was done - perhaps something was left unfinished.
Abby's about 3 years old.

Feedback, please. And thanks!

And got the T-shirt

You only get one medical thread per pig. You can copy this and paste it on her other thread.
