Tumor in Jaw

My dog has a large (1/2 inch by 3 inch) tumor in his lower jaw which seems to be growing quite rapidly.  The Vet does not feel we should do a biopsy as surgery cannot be completed even if its benign and we cannot afford chemo.    He gave him antibiotics and pain meds and said he'd see us in 10 days if he makes it that long.

Does anyone know what I can expect to my dog to go thru?  After clearing up the infection in his mouth, he seems much better and I am now questioning the 10 day window.

I am sorry to hear this about your dog. My dog had a tumor in his jaw before we decided to lay him down. He stopped eating, and seemed to be in a lot of pain. All he would do is sleep, and he got very skinny. I would do what is best for your dog, and I hope things work out for you!
