Bellas mom here.
I'm calling the vet today to find out what she said to my husband, what this is called. But apparently, Bella has a build up of fluid in her mammary area. it's not cancerous. they drained it on Sat, and the vet suggested removing the nipple.
I'm concerned about that, because she's 15, has a heart murmur the vet feels is probably age related, and because surgery is expensive, and because 2 years ago Bella didn't rebound from her dentistry all that well-and was both depressed and ill for a couple days.
My Bella means so much to me. I want to do whats best for her, and I have confidence in her vet and like her, so we'll talk and find out whats up. That said, I'm wondering if anyone has ever had a similar experience with an older cat? She was spayed when I got her many years ago, so I don't know where this has come from. She does get lactated ringers once a day for CRF, and pepcid 2x a day, and azodyl once or twice a day.
Deb and Bella
