IT's easy to miss.

The MCT's I've seen have been more red, but I know they can look a variety of different ways, and I've also read that they can pop up quickly.

What is your current protocol? I guess I ask mostly out of curiousity, as I think you're already doing everything you can.

Same as before. Raw diet, Tagament, Curcumin. I see the bottle of tagamet is empty. don't know how long that has been as he said NOTHING to me about it. We had stopped the benadryl but I'll have him start that again.

She needs to have her thyroid rechecked so I'll make him take her in this week.

You can also use quercitin instead of the benadryl...

How are the other lympy areas, stable?

That's very encouraging. I wonder how much of a chance there I that that is not a MCT. I understanding not wanting to aspirate, but not knowing will be really hard too!

It could be anything. Scott looked at it last night and said it came on fast so it's not something we missed. That worries me.

You could try a green tea compress, and see if that has any effect? Some with MCTs have reported positive results from that...

Basal cell tumor - he's not concerned. She's not a candidate for surgery but felt if it gets "black" or very large they may be able to remove it using a local and a laser.

BUN jumped to over 50. Recheck in 3 months and will look at diet change then if it's still high or climbing.

Changing BUN can also be heart...

VERY glad to hear the vet is not very concerned - I don't know anything about those. It's good to have an answer.
