Max's Battle Wounds

Max had a growth on his neck that we noticed on our Pismo Beach trip. It was small then, but we made a vet appt nonetheless so they could check it out. They said it seemed harmless and to monitor it. It tripled in size over 2 weeks so we scheduled his neutering to be half a month earlier so we could remove that foreign mass at the same time. We are getting a biopsy of it and should receive the results in a week or so.

We brought him home the day after the surgery. He spent the night at the vet so they could monitor him closely. He seemed in such high spirits. The e-collar doesn't really bother him which i was surprised at. He slept most of the day when we brought him home.
