So the first results are back from the biopsy and the lab said it is consistent with something called panniculitis but they are not saying that’s what it is. The doctor is having a consult with the expert tomorrow to try and get more information and decide a plan of treatment.
I looked up panniculitis but the only pictures I have found are very red and oozing and angry looking. I don’t know if that is something coming with these or if it is something different all together.
The good news is that there was no cancer cells.
I hope the doctor gets back to you soon and that the problem is easily solved. Give Cassie a bit hug. I’m saying an extra prayer for the both of you.
Thank you! I appreciate the prayers.
I am glad that it is not cancer! I know many dogs get benign tumors as they age, so perhaps it will not affect her health any? Fingers crossed.
Thanks. I know that happens as they get older but she’s only 15 months old. Wah!
Fingers crossed for good news.
Thanks. You can uncross them to work on Jane. 🙂
Hey, Susan, my dog has some skin issues right now, too, and you might find this site helpful.
Cassie is such a pretty dog!

Thanks Lisa. I’ll go check it out.
glad it isn’t cancer.
Thanks. LOVE that icon!
Yay for no cancer. I hope they find it and it’s something easy and curable, or simply no big deal. Sending good thoughts Cassie’s way.
Hmmmm. Not an allergy, then? What a relief that it’s not cancer. Hugs to you both.
I’m so glad that it’s not cancer. I hope the issue resolves itself on its own–and soon!
(Hugs) for you and Cassie. I know it’s gotta be very hard to wait on those final results.
Hurray on the no cancer cells. That’s good, at least. I hope this condition just disappears as quickly as it appeared (though that’s frustrating, too, but in a good way).
