Toby Update

Toby's got a malignant cancer on his rear leg where he was gnawing, the wound is healing up almost perfectly, but new tumors are appearing - there was one originally, now there are three.  The original plan was to wait for the wound to heal then remove the tumor - with three there could be other issues.

Then last night he hurt his back again, and it looks like there may be spinal damage, his rear legs aren't coordinating with the rest of him.  It's very hard for him to stand up and he is in constant pain.  I'm calling the vet and trying to get in for a consult.  If he has a good prognosis without major surgery, we'll do whatever needs to be done.
