Thread: I'm Back and I Need Some Serious Advice.

  1. #1

    Default I'm Back and I Need Some Serious Advice.

    I'm probably not the forums most favourite person, but I need help and I don't know a group of people who are more dog savvy than you lot so here I am.

    Rosie has a tumor. It's on her left chest area. Our vet has advised to have it removed straight away and have a biopsy done to see what kind of tumor it is. I am trying to do some of my own research on it to prepare myself for what may come but I have absolutely no idea what I'm talking about and I've never been in this situation before. So I'm hoping that someone can point me in the right direction.

    She's only 7 months old so I think the vet is quite suspicious of this tumor. Please, please, please I need some help.

    I would be going by what the vet thinks should be done. Many tumours are benign. If it was my dog, she would be in as soon as possible.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Oh you must be terrified
    I agree with Di dee. The vet needs to biopsy this lump to know how to treat it.
    Please keep us updated she is in my thoughts.

    Be careful how much research you do - you will only terrify yourself. Take things one step at a time, let the vet take the tumour and do the biopsy, THEN when you know what you are dealing with you can do the research.

    Hugs to you both.

    Have it removed - have it tested - and then figure out whether to worry or not!!

    Go to the vet and get them tested.

    I did and it turned out to be tumors in the tissue of the hair follicle of my setter which was a lot better than all the things that were running thru my head.

    Fingers crossed for you that it's nothing serious.

    So sorry to hear that. Hope all goes well with the vet on Tuesday and hope it's nothing nasty. Try not to worry, just give Rosie lots of love.
    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.

    The only advice that springs to mind is to get it testedasap. But make sure that you write down what the vet tells you about it. When you're under so much stress and worry it's easy to forget comlex names of things which is endlessley frustraing later.

    Chin up.
