Thank you for all your messages…it is really nice to get support!  My Lucygirl is coming home today, she was at the cottage with my husband for her surgery yesterday.  Just can’t wait to see her… However, she did not want to eat since the surgery…I am a little bit concern!!!  When we will know which stage of cancer (1,2,3,etc)  we will decide if we will do the amputation or try chemio (if possible, $ and distance)…The closest vet who is doing chemio is 3 hours away driving…Anyway…I will keep you unformed!  Thanks again!

Hi everyone, 3 weeks ago we went to the vet for our Gloden Lab mixed with husky baby (of  6 years old) named Hunter.  He was diagnosed with Lymphoma cancer with 6 lymph nodes really big.  It was too late for him to get chemio so we started the prednisone…He last only 2 weeks and half….we had to put him down, Thursday Feb 16th 2017…He was our first dog that we adopted and we really loved him…during the same time I went to see the vet with Lucy (Catahoula dog) the second dog we adopted in Mars 2015…She had that boss on her leg since we adopted her (2 years ago)…the vet was always saying it was probably a lopoma (a mass)…then he suggested we get remove the mass without knowing if it was cancer or not…(1500$) so we decided to go see an other vet to get an other price…that was last Saturday (40 hours after Hunter’s death that we were still crying so much)…she asked me if I wanted to know if it was malign and I said yes…(the other vet over the two years never ask me to get a sample to see if…) Then, I heard that Lucy has a mast cell tumor on her right front leg…I was completely devastated…I couldn’t believe that the other vet never see something that important and never checked if it was cancer… Anyway, today Lucy had her surgery with the other vet…they could not remove the whole tumor since it was twisted in the legs, etc.  She took a sample of her lymphe nodes and will be sending the mass for more results…to know which stage is the cancer…  She talked about amputation or chemio…  At this point, we are still crying our Hunter’s boy and can’t believe that Lucy is still with cancer since the vet could not remove the whole tumor… what do you suggest we do??? We are so lost now…N.B. I am french Canadian and my english is not very good…
