I just thought I’d update you all and let you know Bonnie is okay and perfectly healthy! I am so relieved! The vet said that the “lump” is just larger mammary tissue which can be caused by overactive mammary glands which is more common in the teats further down their body towards the back legs. She says it could have been caused by a false pregnancy in the past, we hadn’t noticed it previously but it may have only become more noticeable as she has gained weight – 2kg in 2 months! 😮
She’s usually around 14kg but was just over 16kg on the scale today. Since she was last weighed we had changed her kibble, added her morning wet food for her supplements and her morning salad so we definitely need to rethink her meal portions as we don’t want her to gain any more weight. We would prefer to get her back down to 14kg as we don’t want any undue pressure on her joints especially as we do long walks and agility with her.
I am just so glad she’s okay, I was so worried waiting to find out. I think we will celebrate tonight but not with extra treats – sorry Bonnie!
