Friday night, mommy noticed a golf ball sized lump up in Pipple throat!She called vet, & was  very lucky as he was just there in October for his cough, & they had one appt left for a recheck. 
Unfortunately,  the vet was unable to aspirate any fluid at all. Upon comparing the current xray to the October one, there appears to be a 2cd lemon sized mass in Pipples chest area, that is pushing on his trachea (wind pipe). This is why he is now having labored breathing.
Unfortunately,  the t hroat mass is in a very delicate area & my vet will not operate on it at all, says he needs specialist who will want a CT scan ($1500).  The second mass he needs am echo cardiogram,  which the specialist can do in our regular vets office & runs $400.  
Current tx.. so, Dr placed Pipples on antibiotics to see if it helps, as well as continue his allergy/steroidal meds & recheck in few days. Today's visit was $149. 00 & we will post all bills. Our vet does not take checks or credit cards over the phone (in person only w/ picture ID of cardholder present). But they do except paypal to my acct. I do not know the specialist vet's policies. Again, please, pray for the little one with the brave spirit. If you have plenty, and can help, we thank you with all my heart.
