My name is Sue and I have two male chocolate labs named George and Aber who are littermates. They are 7 1/2 years old.
I have asked to join the forum because George has been diagnosed with mast cell tumor.
My sister Michelle – ilovethepits – told me that many of the Pit Bull Forum members and their dogs have gone through this journey and shared their stories and outcomes here. I am hoping that your experiences will help me and George through this ordeal.
I had my dogs in for a dental yesterday and while they were sedated the vet noticed a lump on George’s leg.
It was aspirated and had granulated cells (cancer cells). Because of the location on the leg, the Vet doesn't know if he will be able to remove 2-3 cm around the entire tumor to hopefully get clean margins.
He will undergo surgery this Friday, 3/16/12 . It can take up to 5-7 days at the most to find out what Grade of cancer we are dealing with after surgery.
