I was supposed to post about my newest project regarding Buchi's Dog Rehabilitation. However, during my inspection of Chooey's face- eyes, ears, nose and mouth... a little growth on her mouth caught my eye.
Before everything else, let me just share with you a picture of how Chooey acted during the entire trip home.
|OBEDIENT- in human terms SLEEPING|
After 2 nights and 2 days of re-potty training, socializing, grooming and setting them up comfortably in their new dog houses ( waking up at 5 AM, spending more than 4 hours with them and making sure they're all comfy and cozy at night), I discovered this.
|There was 1...|
So I called my sister as we made a thorough inspection of Chooey's mouth and further found 4 more.
|I was surprised to have never noticed this before.|
We've just arrived and this is what I find out... It's as if they just popped out of nowhere. There were 2 inside her mouth and 3 small ones outside. I feel weak and powerless at the sight of these growths. So, I researched about them- praying it's just a minor irritation from the baking soda I've been using to deodorize the place (since Buchi isn't potty trained).
|But then I read about Epulis, a kind of oral tumor, and Canine Warts.|
We've decided to go to the vet a little later (next week) as I don't want to stress Chooey much. We just got here, for Dog's Sake!
Chooey may have contracted canine warts, which I am still unable to comprehend where she got. I couldn't bear the fact that due to her immature immune system she picked this up. Worst, I have to stop her and Buchi from playing with each other because it's contagious.
My sister told me not to worry too much but I'm just devastated.
