That doesn't sound right. 20 diff vets and the majority of them wanted you to put her down? It's serious but not THAT serious.

I'm serious. not the majority said that the majority wanted the money up front. i don't have it up front. the only way to make a payment plan is to get approved for care credit which i got denied for not having enough credit. A few of them told me I might have to put her down. if it's cancer and she deteriorates I will have to, but I wish I didn't. I wish there was something I could do.

I don't know. Maybe the local SPCA could be of assistance? I have no clue.

Cancer grows fast, hate to say that but it's true. I would not recommend you lance it yourself but I'm shocked not a single vet has offered a fine needle aspirate of it. Needle goes in, pulls out cells, look at under a scope and check for cell type.

They did offer it 200 dollars. I cant afford to have it removed for a max of 700$ so I figured the biopsy would be a waste of money because if its cancerous that 200 i coulda saved to have the surgery for her. Either way the biopsy is a waste to me

If it turns out to be nothing serious then it'll save you from worry. And atleast you'll know your dog will be okay... Either way I'd have the biopsy done. Could save your dogs life.

How could it save her life if I cant afford to have it removed?

Not to be rude-or nasty. But it may be something serious and your trying to tell us you went to 20++ vets and not a single one of them wanted to do ANYTHING for you and your dog? That just does not sound right to me. So while your dog could be in tremendous amounts of pain, she might not be showing it, your on here asking us what to do or what it might be. None of us really know-we are not there and can't see it in real life.

There is no possible way you could borrow money from family, friends, etc. to just get it checked out?

I can't imagine how stressed and worried you must be.... I've never run into something like that before, I really hope you can somehow get the poor girl to a vet.

I found this site, maybe it'll help you identify what kind of tumor she has and what's causing it.

Canine Tumors and Cancers

I'm still doing some googling, I doubt it'll be much help but I'll post if I can find anything useful.
