Poor Burger Boy!

September 19th, 2011 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Poor Burger Boy Lovers!  Last night a huge sebaceous cyst on himz back burst.  This thing has been around for years.  Our vet wanted to remove it next Monday when the Mayor gets his teeth cleaned and I totally agreed.  The damn thing has been around for years and has to burst one week prior to his teeth cleaning!?!


So he is now on a slight pain pill, antibiotics and warm compresses.  Poor Burger Boy….

More tending to our patient later….Love, Cat, Grandma, and Emma.

PS – The Mayor is eating good.

    Poor baby! I hate it when one of my little ones have issues. My Hayley has non-stop skin issues and i have to play doctor every day. I knew my medical school would one day pay off!!! Get better soon, Chaps! We are sending get well vibes and love from Texas!

    I HATE those things! Jethro’s rarely burst. What happens to him is they get so big that his skin can’t stretch anymore then it will crack where it meets his body. Jethro has never been put under for a dental without having a cyst removed. I’m just glad that they’re always benign. I got the first 2 tested and now I don’t even worry about testing them anymore unless the doc says it’s a different kind of cyst.

    It’ll get better Chaps but your sure going to have a big bald spot and a big incision when you get home. Jethro feels for ya.

    Oh no we are so sorry to hear that it burst. We got Abby’s before it burst last year. Bumper and Abby send lots of drool and slobber to Chaps. I am sure nurse Emma will take good care of himz.

    Chaps, have you received the special treats I sent earlier regarding your upcoming surgery? I know your cyst burst, but I don’t want anyone to forget about your treats.
