Are you positive it's a tumor or a large cyst on her? Just wondering,
my in laws dog has a large cryst on her, I'm talking almost the size
of a cantelope and they HAVE money and it pisses me off they won't
do anything about that poor dog. I mean, can you imagine all that
extra weight?

Anyways, please get your poor dog medical attention before it's too
late! My poodle puppy has came down with Parvo and if it wasn't for
my mom lending me the money she would have died within two days

Good Luck, I wish you the best!

It's been awhile, but I'm back & back in the saddle!

Another thing to is call Care Credit. They are a credit card for emergancy vet or vet care only. Without them, I wouldn't still have my baby girl Abby (my dog). I strongly recommend getting that card and taking her to the vet. And then keeping the card for future emergencies. The customer services is less than desirable but I don't care as long as my kids are safe.

Also, make sure your vet accepts Care Credit before taking her there. Not all vets do.

She's running around the ranch just fine now but if the same thing comes up again what can we do/try?

Thank you,
First, check her mouth - assuming you are comfortable going into a dobes mouth. Look for visible cuts etc in the gums, tongue. Check for missing teeth. Maybe she caught one on something around your property. You said she is hacking coughing... maybe she ingested something that is stuck - is she eating? vomitting? Breathing ok? The tumor - it sounds like its like a lump you can see/feel.. has it been checked out? Maybe she has cancer that is affecting the insides now too. Do you know the VWd status of your dobe? If she's stopped bleeding, maybe that's a good sign that she is not VWd affected - were she affected she could bleed to death. If you can't go to the vet, I'd at least check the mouth thoroughly.

Von Willebrands Disease is the first thing that comes to my mind. It is a blood disorder commonly found in dobermans where the blood doesn't clot. You can test your dog through VetGen (which I think is run through the University of Michigan) for a little over $100.
