    Just got back. The small lump is unidentified, so I had the option of lab tests followed by whatever treatment might be prescribed or removal. It's to be removed! Why mess about? The three minute 'consultation' cost me fifty quid and surgery estimates for the little bump are "between 500 and 600". That large extra home by the sea has to be paid for I guess .

    Not cheap is it.. another reason I don't have a pet now. The main one is I couldn't look after one.
    Hopefully it's just a cyst

    I think that's probably what it is. It's floating around under the skin and not attached to the bone beneath. No more pets after this one!

    Hi Geoff, sorry to hear about your dog, I'm sure it will be ok though.

    I seem to remember it being a Staffy?

    If so; I understand that "fatty lumps" (lipomas) are quite common on the breed as they get older.
    Get the vet to have a bit of a hunt for other lumps while removing it - not a big problem. You did the right thing going to the vet.

    I was talking to the wife of a, retired, local vet. One of his gun dogs needed looking at and he was furious about the way vet fees have gone up since he retired (not sure why he didn't just do it himself though )

    I reckon vets are in cahoots with pet insurance companies to artificially inflate treatment costs to frighten owners into insuring their pets. Next time you visit make a note of how many pens, mugs, baseball caps etc you can see with pet insurers' names on them. And check out the big sticker on that helicopter hiding round the back.
    I just dropped in, to see what condition my condition was in

    T/T: Inspire Monarch, X200 tonearm, Ortofon 2M Black. Phono: Yaqin MS-22B CD: Marantz CD6006 (UK Edition); Headphone/pre: Myryad Z40; Amp: Musical Fidelity A5 Integrated. Audion Silver Night 300b stereo is enjoying a holiday
    Speakers: Zu Omen Def. Cables: Atlas Equator interconnects, Atlas Hyper 3.0 speaker cables

    T'other system:
    Echo Dot, Amptastic Mini One,Celestion 5's, BK XLS-200 DF

    A/V:
    LG 55" OLED, Panasonic Blu Ray, Sony a/v amp, MA Radius speakers, REL Storm sub

    Forget the past, it's gone. And don't worry about the future, it doesn't exist. There is only NOW.

    And pet insurers will load everything in their favour. Older or unwell pets will have unaffordable premiums, assuming cover is even offered.
