Update: Finn has his surgery today and is doing well. Finn & CCR appreciate all the donations thus far, please continue to donate if you can.
Finn is about a 2 year old Cane Corso that came to CCR from an owner surrender. He went straight into a foster home. After a few months, the foster noticed a bump that began to quickly grow. The first vet we took Finn to was unable to determine that the mass was after fine needle aspiration and ultrasound. So CCR had it’s regular vet in Texas make some recommendations after hearing Finn’s story, seeing his pics, and reading the initial vet’s notes. She recommended we take him to a second vet or a surgeon. A week later, we took Finn to another vet and it was determined it was a Salivary Mucocele and received an estimate for surgery. The size of the swelling has increased several inches over the week and continues to grow. Finn needs the surgery immediately to avoid an abscess. He is scheduled for surgery at the beginning of this week!
The estimate from a long time CCR vet/ surgeon in Ohio with his discount included was comparable to the secondary vet that saw Finn. It would be easiest on Finn to have his surgery near his foster Dad so that recovery is easier.
Thank you for your support.
