Whew! Looks like all is good!

Thank you so much everyone for your kind posts to my last entry and for all the prayers for our puppy dog! They worked! We took him to our regular vet this morning...Dr. Hackler rocks! He had a perineal hernia which they repaired on the right side. The thing that was concerning us the most, was that the ER we took him to said he had a mass on the left side. They did a needle biopsy and said it appeared to be cancerous. When the doc went in to fix the hernia, he had planned to remove the mass as well and then have it biopsied. Well, he couldn't find any mass. He had another doctor come in and look and they couldn't find anything either. Upon further investigation, it appears that the ER did a biopsy on a hemroid. Yukon is home now and recovering from his day of surgery. I am so glad that the weight of worry about a cancerous mass is gone.
