Alaska's Story of Neck Mass
Alaska was in bad shape when he first came in. The 4 year old Polish Lowland Sheepdog mix could barely breathe because of a big mass in the back his throat, and a huge mass under his neck.
Long story short, after biopsies, several surgeries and a tracheostomy, Alaska eventually recovered very well. Luckily, all masses were benign!
"Dr Zeltzman and staff: I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your help and professionalism. Alaska would actually run to the door (of your clinic)! Thank you for your kindness."
A few months later, PL writes:
Alaska, a 10 year old Husky, had free air in his chest (spontaneous pneumothorax) due to a ruptured bulla in his lung. He had open chest surgery (thoracotomy) to fix the problem and recovered well. His owner PL writes: “Dr. Zeltzman and staff: You gave me and my husband two more years with our friend Alaska. We hope there will be many more.”
