https://ibb.co/ZNZDXqQ Hi, trying to find some advice, my 10 yr old has a tumor underneath his tail, went to the vet did aspiration the path report says DIAGNOSIS: Circumanal gland neoplastic epithelial cells with mild cellular pleomorphism, anisonucleosis and piling up of reserve cells. They advise to do a partial or full biopsy, I asked the vet should be do a ultrasound or X-ray before doing biopsy, since sedation is required and to see if there are any other tumors inside, not being cold but if there are tumors inside why do a biopsy... cancer is cancer and I would don't want to put him through any surgery etc. Her reply was we already discussed what I advised, I guess she is used to people just going along with what she says. We are newer to this area and I haven't found a vet I can trust in yet. We are in the Orlando FL area. Below is the pathology report and picture. thanks https://ibb.co/ZNZDXqQ https://ibb.co/YbVz2vJ
Hello everyone! I am writing to seek advice. My 11 year old magyar agar got very sick (hungarian greyhound and we living in hungary). He is called Buki, just as Bambi (in an other thread) was diagnosed via MRI scan with a brain tumour (probably a meningioma) and hydrocephalus (water on the brain). The tumor approximately 2cm large. On monday it looked we lost him, he woke up in a terrible condition, couldn't walk and very confused eyes he had, tremor from pain and being scared probably. It was a great shock, the evening before we took a nice walk and he vas happy, well, little running playing as usual. MRI clarified the diagnosis. The doctors helped a lot, they are good to us. They say the tumor too big and too diffusive to be operated. We started the steroid and he got a lot better, now walks quite fine again and has a great appetite as always. Sleeps even a bit more, and getting all the treat I can give him. I have some time to spend with him at home in the autumn, work at home quite much (not all the time). I have reed all the comment in the other thread about the same, and it give me some hope to be with him still for a bit. I don't know how to prepare myself to take care as best as possible for him in the time we still can have together. If you have any suggestion how can I do better, or any experience similar to learn from, I am glad to hear. 5 days ago he looked so healthy for his age, he still looks incredible good: https://www.instagra...p/BYLfrNVgOEc And an older picture, here he is around 4-5 year old: And many of our nice moments in pictures here: https://www.facebook.com/renatadezso/media_set?set=a.1240125639528.2038039.1120893346&type=3
Hello Fellow Greyhound Moms and Dads, My husband and I just returned from the animal hospital where our son, Rudy, is currently undergoing surgery to remove a tumor in his spleen. There is a likely diagnosis of Hemangiosarcoma, but we wont know for sure until early next week after they biopsy it. The doctor said there is a 80-90% chance of the tumor being malignant based on the blood pooling in the area, as well as other surrounding factors. Needless to say, we are devastated by the possible diagnosis - this is our first Greyhound and he felt perfectly fine up until this morning. Further, with a confirmed Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis, the vet has given him a timetable of 2-4 months to live past surgery, possibly more if chemo becomes an option. In the likely event that it is Hemangiosarcoma, does anyone have any knowledge of or previous experience with this type of cancer in Greyhounds? Or perhaps any recommended oncologists in the Boston area? If chemo becomes an option for him, does anyone have any suggested types/methods of chemo or meds they've found success with for Greyhounds? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
