Today the mum brought in a skinny (hairless) guinea pig for consultation of a large submandibular tumour, the size of a fish-ball, around 3 cm x 3 cm. Expat children who goes back to their country will leave their rabbits, guinea pigs to this daughter and so she has 6 GP.
"The condo management permitted two dogs per unit," mum said. "So no dogs can be housed. She is allergic to cats."
It is extremely difficult to be a mother nowadays as the younger generation will buy or adopt pets and the mother is left with the burden of caring for them when they go for holidays.
It is tough for her and I said I would find a home for this GP as she did not want surgery which is the only treatment. Medication will not work as it is a big tumour.
