(He gets nervous enough and doesn't need the flashy beast around to make matters worse, so no photos.)
Dr. Annette said his discolored tooth shows no signs of infection, causes him no pain and she suggested leaving it alone, just like you said kks.
That was a huge relief!
She also aspirated 2 lumps that appear to be lipomas (benign, fatty tumors), which are common in older dogs. Zack was approximately a year old when we adopted him in Oct. 2001, so he is 10+.
Dr. Annette identified the little growth on his lower, right eyelid as a meibomian gland adenoma, a benign condition, also common in older dogs. He looks like he always has dirt in his eye, but it doesn't seem to bother him in the least.
His nuclear sclerosis (senile cataracts) has not worsened since his last visit.
Overall, Dr. Annette said Zack looks great for a senior doggie and that Mom should stop worrying.
Thanks for all the good vibes yesterday...bloggie buddies are the best!
