While playing with the gliders last night, I noticed my boy Cupid had a lump on his chest. I hadn't noiced it earlier. He has always been a chunky boy with his "man boobs" but this is different. It is an obvious lump, smaller than a gumb ball.
He is eatng and drinking fine, playing/acting normal, and does notseem to be bothered by it at all. He is showing no signs of pain or stress and even let me touch it, so it does nto seem to be hurting him in any way.
I called the vet and sheduled an appointment but they had no openings until July 16th. Since it does not hurt him, I chose to wait so I can save the money for any surgery/testing he may need. (They would charge me an extra $50 to squeeze him in sooner.)
Cupid is a sterile mosaic. He was oop sometime in 2005. He came from Jolly Gliders in CT. I got him when he was a few years old... he wasn't thrilled about being handled but he tolerated me and has warmed up to me now (although he still doesn't enjoy being handled). I have fed BML to all my gliders until last month, I switched to HPW complete. He has never been ill with me. No issues with my other 8 gliders.
I am sorry for the blurry pic but Cupid was happy about me exposing his chest/belly to the world. I am curious for opinions and things I should ask my vet, etc etc...
