The vet was out and said there are only 2 reasons she would have such a large edema. The first is heart failure, which he does believe she has... you can see her pulse in her neck which is a sign as well.... but also he said that it could be a melanoma pressing on a lymph node causing the fluid to back up.....
Unfortunately if it's heart failure... she'll need to be put down soon... if it's the melanoma, she'll need to be put down as soon as I find out. The vet gave me naquasone paste and gave her an injection of Lasix... if the edema doesn't go away, then it's a melanoma.... if it goes away, it's heart failure. Either way, I don't have long, and very little time to decide.
