My black lab is 1 yr and 4 months old. She had a litter of pups in November and this tumor started growing. It's growing rapidly.vet had no clue and wants to remove it but I don't have 700 to do so. I was thinking about numbing the area and puncturing it to see if it's an infection. I have the sterile equipment and medicines to do so. I really think it is a cancerous tumor tho because it's growing way too fast. I'm torn and don't know what to do
The tumor is double this size now over what, a week?
Is it causing her pain? It looks like its on her teet, no? She is still a pup herself at a year old..idk at what agents safe to breed dogs but could it be caused by her having pups when she is still just a pup herself? That's odd I have never seen this! Posted via Mobile Device
The vet said it's not mastitis because its not on a nipple and it itself doesn't look like mastitis. She had 11 puppies O.O I want to puncture it to see I anything drains. I have antibiotics and the proper equipment to do so. Would this be a bad idea?
I wouldn't take it upon yourself to cut it open. Keep an eye on it, and take her back to your vet if it gets worse. Talk about your options... There has to be something better then cutting it open yourself. Posted via Mobile Device
It has gottn worse. I've talked to 15-20 diff. Vets and the suggestions I got was well people are more important sometimes you have to do things you don't want to and put her down.... O.O she's 1 yr old!! I it wasn't growing like it is it would give me time but it's not cooperating with me
