My vet recently removed a lump(half dollar-sized) from my 4-year old boxer's shoulder. The biopsy confirmed that it is a sarcoma. My vet is currently consulting with a cancer specialist on where to go from here. He did mention radiation therapy as a likely treatment. Is there anything i can do (or should know) in the meantime?
My dog has no current symptoms, is eating very well and is as playful as a typical boxer.
