Speedy's trip to the Vet!

Well Speedy did go to the vet today,he very nearly didn't as the lump had gone down but by 10am this morning it was back.....
Well this is a strange one this lump,the vet we saw was Chris he was the vet who did Speedy's eye surgery.After having a good look and trying to syringe out some fluid of which none came out he was at a bit of a loss having never come across a lump like this before,we asked if Speedy could have picked up something or was having a reaction to some ticks he had picked up on friday we finally managed to clear the last ones today as they were really titchy,Chris said it was possible but unlikely as there are no other symptoms and Speedy isn't unwell, and as there was no fluid then it doesn't look like an abscess  or it is a very early one that hasn't produced much in the way of pus so he gave Speedy and injection of antibiotics which will last 4 days it will also cover any other infection just in case.Chris also said it didn't feel like a cancerous growth ever so that is good news too and he checked the residue on the needle he used to draw out any fluid on a slide under the microscope and he found a little white blood cells and fat and said that wasn't to much to worry about, so he said how strange it was with this lump.
So its a strange one so we have to keep an eye on it  and if there is any change we will take Speedy back to the vets,but this isn't bothering him and he is still zooming and running about have fun,so I guess that is all that matters....its just very peculiar.
so here is one of the videos from Saturday night
sorry make that 2 videos
if you look at his left side the same side he had his eye removed you can see that it has a swelling or lump making it look bigger than his other side,all very strange!

  3. We think that it is strange... however it is also GOOD news that it is not cancerous.. that is what we always think of First... We are sort of thinking that it is some sort of infection that the medicine will clear up right away... We are glad that it was a GOOD report... even though it IS Mysterious. POTP fur you Speedy.

  5. Paws crossed that there is nothing to worry about with the lump. I wish the vet hadn't been so baffled by it - it's always better to have answers.

  8. This does sound quite strange. But it certainly looks as if Speedy is not really bothered by this lump at all. He certainly sped all around while out on his walk. We love watching his videos. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  11. Hmmm... it does sound strange Rachel! I hope it turns out to be nothing serious. Sometimes these mystery cases can be a pain, but I'm glad to hear it's not really bothering him.

  12. Abscesses CAN start in a state in which no fluid can be drawn out of them. After days or weeks, they become softer and more yielding to the touch, as they fill up with the gross pus.

    Hopefully, antibiotics now will help prevent it getting bad.

    Take care, Speedy.

    Oh, and milk it... Make Hoomin Mummy fetch and carry things to you! Give a *THUMP!* when you want to call her over to request a treat like a grape, or some bunana! <3

  22. I am late; I just got home, but I am ever so relieved to hear that the vet does NOT think it is cancer. Sweet Rachel, we are keeping Speedy in our hearts! He looks amazing, and is FASTER than lightening! He seems to be a happy bunny and thank goodness he is not sluggish or in pain!

    I know you'll keep us in the know. Big hugs to you sweet friends!

  23. Awww, my poor furriend! I definitely see a bit of swelling on your left side, but hoping it's nothing! Just an fyi: I have benign growths all over, sort of like warts, that really have no explanation. Hoping that it's something like this for you, my furriend, and nothing serious!! Although, an excessive amount of white blood cells usually means your body is fighting some kind of infection :/ Seriously hoping it's nothing, Speedy & Rachel! xoxo, Destiny & Asia

  25. Yes the body is a funny thing but it sounds like some type of infection which the antibiotics should get rid of. The internet is a funny thing too, I have always enjoyed English Literature and so many novels involved the mysterious moors. I must admit I am rather delighted to have Speedy show them to me. HeeHee. Keep us posted, Speedy is on our POTP list. X

  33. I'm glad it probably has nothing to do with the bad C and I hope the injection will help to chase the lump away. I cross my paws for a happy and healthy Captain Speedy.

  35. WOW. That is most curious. It's not causing my little buddy any pain right? I'm praying for your little guy that it's just a regular swelling thing happening and will go away really soon. <3 XOXO - Bacon

  36. Glad to hear it looks like nothing serious! Keep speeding Speedy! x

  37. Glad to hear Dr. Vet doesn't think it's too serious! Maybe it was just a nasty reaction to a bitey bug bite? Or maybe it is bunny cellulite? Mom says cellulite is quite a pain in the butt, and on the butt! BOL!

  38. Hey Speedy!
    Wow, sounds like you are making your vet scratch his head and check his medical books on this one! BOL I'm sure it's nothing serious and your zoomie videos are very cute. Sending you my healing vibes to help that bump disappear.

  39. What a strange lump. Whee are pleased to hear it looks like it isn't anything serious. Whee know Buddy got a strange lump after being bitten by a red ant after he decided to dig up the nest. It took anti-biotics and a topical cream but he was right as rain in no time.

  44. Oh Cheeky Bunny. This is bothersome. Hopefully nothing more than your body's reaction to those pesty ticks. There is a lot they do not know about medicine, that is why they say they are 'practicing medicine.' They need a lot of practice, and sometimes, things just ARE. We will say a healing prayer for whatever it is. We recommend that you ask your humans for extra veggies and cuddles and milk it for as much as it is worth - Your friends at DogDaz

  45. Hoping for the best and no illness. One of our cats had a "puff" that appeared on his back right at the base of his tail. The vets could never quite figure it out. The aspirated it a few times, but as it would only decrease in size rather than increasing and did not seem to cause PetCat any discomfort, it was eventually just left alone. It never got much larger than a big grape. I think it bothered us more than it did him. Odd, those things.
