Eight-year-old Miss Aspen, a senior with a wonderful personality, came to us as a stray from a local shelter. Each Lab who joins us receives an intake exam by our veterinarian, and seniors receive special lab work to guide any care they might need. Aspen’s exam uncovered two troubling issues. She will need a dental for an oral abscess, and secondly a hard mass the size of an orange was discovered near her hip. Under anesthesia our vet will take a biopsy of the mass. The results will help determine subsequent surgery to remove it. Until her upcoming surgery, Miss Aspen is comfortably enjoying the good life on a soft bed in her foster home.
Aspen’s care is being provided by Alameda East Veterinary Hospital.
