Meet Molly! Molly is a very sweet 12 year old Lab Mix. She came to see Dr. Leakey in April to check a suspicious lump on her shoulder. Dr. Leakey decided to perform surgery to remove the growth and sent it in for histopathology. The results came back as a Fibrosarcoma; which is a type of cancer. Fortunately, this type has low metastatic potential and we were able to excise all of the mass. We will continue to monitor Molly closely for any more lumps or bumps. Molly recovered from her surgery very well! Shortly after, she had to make another trip to see Dr. Leakey when she developed lameness in her rear legs. After an exam, it turns out she had tarsal luxation or a ligament injury in her rear leg! She is currently going under further testing with specialists to rule out a possible endocrine issue causing the problem. She is currently sporting some cool splints to help support while she heals!

After some loving care from the staff, a little medication, and an overnight stay he was feeling better! He is now back to his happy, loving self always wagging his tail! Take his advice and do not play with snakes! They can be very dangerous! Luckily, Rusty was able to avoid some much worse complications.
