My dog has had two surgerys in the last two months which contisted of removing mast cell tumors. First one was grade 2, second was grade 1. Since the last surgery she has developed more bumps on almost a daily bases in two weeks. What will happen if I do not get these removed, considering they are not located all over her body?? What signs do I look for in the furture if they are not removed to tell me she is suffering?? We have an appointment tomorrow...... going to see what the vet says this time...... I don't think I could have her suffer with other treatments........ please help I feel like I am facing a never ending battle.
Hello, I am sorry to hear about this and glad to help.
First get a copy of the biopsy reports, review each report carefully to see whether or not it indicates that each mast cell tumor was"completely" removed and that the "margins" are clean. If not, the few mast cells left simply regrow and form another tumor.
Review your dogs diet carefully and consider the anti-cancer diet. Eliminating dietary carbohydrates is quite helpful to prevent and retard cancer cell growth and recurrence.
Pet vitamin supplements that are natural and comprehensive can be very helpful to boost your dogs internal immunity and help her body to build resistance to disease, infection and cancer. Colostrum supplements are also a valid consideration.
I am glad to review your dogs labs and discuss this further with you. Feel free to contact our veterinary office.
