I noticed a tumor on my dog late Thursday. After getting bloodwork and testing done, his tumor was removed Monday. While a week later, he seems to be doing fine, but we found out it was a Mast Cell Tumor and Stage 3. Our vet has given him 4 to 6 months left, even know he appears healthy and the tumor is removed. The vet believes that the tumor may have spread in other lymph nodes. Diesel is an 8 year old Boxer and my baby boy, who gets spoiled. At this point we don't think chemo or therapy is an option, price and age of Diesel. We are going to change his diet to better help him fight cancer. We know this doesn't fix it, but anything that would help. We are going to try going all natural mostly on food wise and make sure he says happy and healthy as can be. He has been in the family since he has been 8 years old, but my dad and I have owned him for four years. He goes everywhere with me, pet store and hiking mostly. I'm at the point I'm scared to really take him places because of his immune, but he loves it. Other then finding the tumor and starting to show age you would have no idea he is sick.
He was the seeing eye dog for this puppy until she passed and he was never taught to help her, but did it on her own.
Ne and him
