Update on Spyder

Although the tumor on his left shoulder appears perhaps to be enlarging somewhat, Spyder remains in excellent spirits and his appetite has even improved over the past couple of days. He ate well last night and this morning, and his diarrhea had largely diminished over the past day or so (although it did return this evening, for which we started him on another prescription food additive powder that hopefully will resolve the problem soon). He still enjoys his twice daily short walks very much and is, as always, eager for a tummy rub, and continues to enjoy lying out in the yard on nice days.

I do notice some ever so slight decrease in muscle mass in his left front leg, but his mobility remains good and he exhibits no pain so he appears to be on the appropriate dosage of medications.

I continue to worry about my little man, of course, but am glad that he at least seems to be comfortable and happy right now.
