A few weeks ago, we noticed a tiny little bump on Bingley's ear.
That little bump soon grew into a big bump that we, being the responsible puppy parents that we are, were seriously concerned about. We took him to the vet and they diagnosed him with what is called a "button tumor" or a histiocytoma. The diagonosis took about 5 minutes...and $150.
In any case, they let us know that it will bleed really easily and we could pay to have it surgically removed...or just wait and it would go away on it's own.
We clearly chose the later option, being more cost effective (read: free).
Well in no time, of course the thing started bleeding, and then it scabbed, which made it itch, which made him scratch, and the whole cycle would start again. We tried everything we could think of, but we finally had to resort to...
I think our dog is losing his street cred.
