Oscar has a lump off

Oscar is a beautifully mannered senior Russian Blue who has graciously allowed us to publish the photographs of his journey through Hall Vet Surgery today.We removed a lump from the side of his neck because lumps in cats' skin are often tumours with the potential to spread or at least cause considerable local discomfort. 

Oscar has the hair clipped over his jugular vein so that we can take a sample of his blood.  We tested his blood to make sure his vital organs would handle the anaesthetic.
