Default Ilsa's Lovely Lady Lumps

Ilsa had her lumps aspirated today, and... just Ilsa grease, as expected! Looks like they're benign, which is a great thing and a load off my shoulders. I was so worried they were something worse, but as usual Ilsa got me all worked up over nothing.

Also, my vet is only going to charge $110 for Ronin's neuter this fall... yippee! They're going to leave the scrotum though... of how I hate the empty dangly scrotum! But, I'm saving more than $200 leaving it to be reabsorbed, as my vet back home was willing to take it off but was going to charge me $385 for the whole shebang.

So, those of you who have had adult males neutered... how long does it take for that icky sack to reabsorb?

PS - photos will be up sometime tonight from the dog park romp. No Django pics this time around, as the Des Moines dog park was "closed for maintenance". I think that means "we need to clean up all the poo you irresponsible dog owners left in our park, you big idiots!".

Glad to hear that!

and Malakai still has a bit of his "man purse" left, and he was neutered in May of last year.

Yay Ilsa! Has she recovered from the indignity yet?

When we had Simon, I don't think he ever totally lost his manpurse entirely. There wasn't MUCH there though. Is there anything else you need to have done to him while he is under?

You, ahem, KIND of got pics of Django today...

LOL @ "manpurse"...

Glad Ilsa was just being worrisome and nothing more! Those lumps do tend to raise your heart rate regardless, don't they?

Sizzle, Middie has taken six months and has shrunk a LOT. I doubt it'll completely go away, but it's just a little flap.

Yikes, that long? I don't mean to be lewd here, but... Ronin's... um, his are pretty big. I'm worried that he'll have an icky little flappy there forever!

You're not being lewd, and yes, there can always be a very small flap of skin left.. I've seen old males who still have.. hanging bits. (Now whose the lewd one? LOL) But then again he was pretty freakishly well-endowed, too, so Ronin's will probably be the same.

I'm worrying the same thing about Zaphod, Leah. He's... extremely well-endowed.

When I had Ripley neutered, it took about 6 months for him to lose the manpurse entirely. I wish I remember how long it took Buddy, he was a big big boy.
