Sweet, young Oreo found himself at a county shelter with a strange growth on his head. His skull appeared almost cone shaped and would seem to fluctuate from week to week in size. Veterinarians could only guess what the growth meant and worried about tampering it with biopsies as it may only exacerbate the problem. LEADSRQ was very happy to offer funding a CT contrast scan with our friends at Veterinary Surgery Center of Sarasota. After a full day of testing, we were thrilled to learn of Oreo’s diagnosis: idiopathic calvarial hyperostosis  – a rare, benign x-linked disorder that only affects the skull.  Oreo’s prognosis is good and his future looks even better because he was recently adopted and has a wonderful, new Mom!! Congratulations Oreo and happy life to you and your new family!
