My Buster has just been diagnosed with a Mass cell tumor on his ankle, and our vet says he can not remove it but wants to refer us to a Surgeon (perhaps Guelf U) as it is a difficult place to have one. They have done a fine needle aspiration, and they believe it is a grade 1 tumor. I'm at a real loss what to do, as I lost my boxerXmastiff just over five years ago to cancer and what the family and Angus went through was hell. I was told that Mass cell tumors were the worse kind of cancer a dog could get when we last went through this and he did not have a mass cell and it was real bad time. But after reading alot on the internet and on BW, they do not seem to be as bad as I thought they were. I know I am rambling but I am shocked and confused it's too soon to have to go through this kind of thing again and I do not want to lose another one of my babies to this disease.
