Possible Lymphoma
Amount: $595.00
Posted by: DSellman in York, PA.Posted: August 2nd, 2012 06:08AM
Breed: LabradorCancer Type: Lymphoma
Treatment: none yetVet: Dr. London
Noticed a large softball size lump on my dogs rear hip earlier this week. Took him to vets last night and had xrays, aspiration and bloodwork. They had to send out for analysis as they weren't qualified to diagnose at the vet's (don't they teach them how to diagnose at school??) which cost $200 more!! Waiting to hear results today. I AM FREAKING OUT!!

Mast cell tumors
Amount: $4,700.00
Posted by: Bambi in San Mateo, CA.Posted: April 10th, 2012 10:04PM
Breed: PitbullCancer Type:
Treatment: Surgically removedVet:
Had a lump on my boys head aspirated, it came back as mast cell. Today he under went a intense surgery to remove the tumor from his head unfortunately they found a second tumor on the head by his eye and that too was removed. Skin had to be taken from his neck to create a flap for his head. I don't know what grade it is yet but am so hopeful we have clean margins so my baby won't have to endure any more pain. Thankfully I work for a vet and was discounted a great deal otherwise this surgery would have been closer to $7000

Mast Cell Tumors
Amount: $10,000.00
Posted by: Maria Tully in Brunswick, GA.Posted: March 20th, 2012 11:03AM
Breed: Black lab mixCancer Type: Mast Cell
Treatment: Surgery and chemoVet: SEVO
Our lab kept having bumps off and on all over his body. We finally had to vet remove to find out what he was allergic to. She called to say it was cancer and sent us to an oncologist. She had the vet surgically remove the larger ones and we started him on chemo. He got through the first chemo fine but had new bumps (tumors) shortly after he finished chemo, tried another and it made him sick so we had to stop that one. Is about to finish the third type of chemo next week but we have found two new tumors on him this past week. Don't know what else to do for him right now.

Mast Cell Tumor

Posted by: littlebee in Columbia Station, OH.Posted: March 11th, 2011 11:03AM
Breed: Labrador RetrieverCancer Type: Mast Cell
Treatment: SurgeryVet: Akron Referral Vet
My 5-year-old yellow lab was running on our property and tripped over a fence. A few days later we noticed he was lame on that back leg. 2 weeks later a large lump appeared on his inner knee. After xrays and a fine-needle aspiration, the results indicated a mast cell tumor. We took him to a specialist who removed the tumor along with some muscle that it had adheared to. The tumor was well-defined and we are waiting for pathology to let us know the grade of the tumor. We have already decided no staging because we will not do radiation or chemo. regardless of the results.

Breed: Golden RetrieverCancer Type: hemangiosarcoma
Treatment: surgeryVet: Trish Wendell and U of Guelph
I was referred to U of G Small Animal Hosp. by an another incompetent vet in Huntsville, Trish Wendell. She did unnecessary emergency surgery for a hernia. Wasn't that, so she sent us to Guelph. They did over $5000 more surgery. Turns out the dog had incurable cancer. My beautiful dog was tortured, then put down. It's all about the money. I asked why they didn't test for cancer before they did all this surgery. I was told "Who do you think we are, Princess Margaret Hospital?" Yes, I thought they were the best, that's why I took my dog there!

I'm sure it will be expensive, but hopefully worth preserving the life of my family member.

Breed: BichonCancer Type: adenocarcinoma
Treatment: SurgeryVet: Gilson Surgeon/Church
Dr. Whit Church is one of the smartest and caring cardiologist/vets. I had been to three veterinarians (one board certified internist, Dr. Greene) that all missed Katie's coughing symptom and misdiagnosed as heart disease. Took Katie (on a whim) to see a cardiologist. Whit Church assessed the situation, had an x-ray and biopsy done on the first visit. Gilson did the surgery on June 8th. Pathology with clear margins on June 14th.

Breed: American Eskimo SpitzCancer Type: transitional cell carcinoma
Treatment: Chemotherapy with piroxicamVet: Dr. Hamilton, Georgia Vet Specialist
The chemotherapy was awful. My dog did not respond well to the treatment. When we told the doctor that she was too weak to take another treatment, he told us to continue. She had the treatment. Then she became extremely ill and died 2 weeks later. I will never put another dog through chemotherapy again, nor would I use any doctor from Georgia Vet Specialists.
