Mast Cell Tumors

Last Friday, we went for a routine nail trim for Sadie. While there, the vet tech found a small bump on her left rear leg. They aspirated it and found mast cells. So Tuesday, she had surgery to remove what I thought was one bump. They examined her and found another tumor on her other rear leg. The tumors were sent off to the lab and we got the results in today. The first tumor they found came back a grade 1,the one that they found during surgery came back a grade 2. Good thing is that the cells appear to not be dividing rapidly. So we will watch for any new bumps or lumps. Hope that we don't find anymore. She has a heart condition and we went through hell last fall with her foot. But in the meantime, I will cherish each day that I have her with me.

Our yellow lab Cleo had a mast cell tumor removed from her chest almost 3 years ago, and hasn't had any other issues thankfully. It was a grade 2 but had clean margins. Thinking good thoughts that no new ones appear.

Sorry to hear about this. I have a friend, whose grey was diagnosed with mast cell tumors, and lived quite a few years afterward.

 

I am hoping and praying, it is the same for you guys!

 

Sending love, hugs and many prayers! Dee and The Five
