Well that sucked. Drove an hour to the specialist for them to charge me $140 so they can then provide a quote for a CT scan and a biopsy. Needless to say the quote was way too much (over $3k) so we left. I'll have to find someone else local who can help and is reasonably priced.

Before anyone suggests, I already looked into pet insurance. Around here it's insanely expensive to add pets to my policy because they're pits.

Back to the drawing board.

So sorry to hear that things worked out the way they did. Is the congestion any better? I know what it's like to have a dog that suffers from something and feeling helpless to make it better. Do the vets feel that the dog is struggling to breathe or just noisy?

Thanks. The congestion isn't really any better, but the lump on her nose was growing out of control over the past few days. Wednesday when I came home from work, her face looked like it was stung by bees. Her nose was completely swollen as well as the areas above her eyes. It was awful and horrible to see!

I was able to find some prednisone in my cabinet and have been giving her them. The swelling has since went down significantly, so whatever this growth is on her face reacts to the prednisone. But the meds don't help her congestion at all anymore.

A neighbor recommended another clinic close by which did great work on his dog's skin condition. I'll give them a shot...got nothing to lose but this congestion!

Thanks again all!

Another update: I recently returned from vacation to find the bump on her nose becoming large again. Took her to the other clinic Monday morning and they said the bump is absolutely causing the congestion. So I'm taking her in Friday morning to have the bump lanced and drained. She's gonna have some stitches and may need to wear a radar dish.

I'm REALLY hoping this does the trick! Fingers crossed! Thanks again all!

If I was a praying man I'd say a litany for her Nubwagon, LOL. I am keeping my fingers crossed that all goes well for her though. Be watching for an update.

Dropped her off this morning & the vet called about an hour ago. The procedure went well and she's in recovery. I'm picking her up ASAP. So relieved that's finally over (for now)!

Thanks again all!

Took her to the vet this past Friday. The lump on her face has returned and is now forming over her right eye. The vet drained it as much as she could but warned the fluid will return.

Sure enough, this morning her whole face is swollen. Her right eye is closed up and I know she's in pain. This afternoon I'm taking her back to the vet who did her surgery.

This is driving me nuts! I can't keep taking her to the vet every week.

UPDATE: I don't know what to say

Last Monday, her face was so swollen, the vet didn't think anything else could be done for her. We discussed the inevitable and decided that this past Monday would be the best day to let her go.

Come last Wednesday, the growth on her face was almost completely gone! She could see again and gained a significant amount of energy. This past Sunday, I let her out front to sniff around and she took off on her usual route to walk! I didn't have a leash or harness but that didn't matter. She was off and trotting around the neighborhood like her old (younger) self! I couldn't believe it!

I am blown away by how tough and resilient she is! This was a completely unexpected 180 from where she was. Needless to say, she's still with us.

I'm thinking she eventually bled out everything in the growth. The last time she was in for surgery to remove the first growth gave her an avenue to release the pressure on this most recent growth. Last Monday, she was bleeding a lot through the incision from her last surgery. The growth was so large it pushed against the first incision point and caused it to tear, releasing the fluid trapped in her face. Now that the growth has subsided, there isn't anymore bleeding.

Whatever it is, I'll take it! She had the whole family in tears last week and even my dad flew in to help let her go.

Thanks again all for the help! We're not out of the woods yet, but this clearing gives us some hope!

Unbelievable Nubwagon. Feel terrible for both of you, what a rollercoaster ride. So happy that there has been such a reversal for the poor girl. What ever happens, you couldn't have done more or have been a better owner.
Hope the growth continues to subside and fade away. These dogs are so stoic and it's what I admire in them. Appreciate the update.

Joe

Thanks Joe and everyone else for the help. It has been a rollercoaster ride but I'm glad she's doing better. We're all floored by the turnaround. She's such a tough, stubborn girl and I've always admired that about her. I think she hated seeing daddy cry

Thanks again all! I'll keep updating everyone with news.

Today is pretty girl's 15th birthday! I adopted her 10 years ago today and it has been an amazing ride so far. She obviously has had a rough year, but she's still with us and is doing well.

She'll be getting a nice little doggie birthday cake and a juicy ribeye tonight for dinner.
