My Dog Has Cancer In Her Mouth
Posted: Posted March 14th by Laxan

Just found out today that my dog has cancer in her mouth. I thought it might be an epulis tumor, but the vet took one look at it and said, "Nope. It's cancer."

They're going to do blood work on her to see if she can survive anesthesia (the vet is concerned that she wouldn't survive anesthesia because she's almost 15 years old), and then proceed to remove the cancer if the blood work checks out. I had to leave her at the vet's office today, though, and I wasn't expecting to. He said I can pick her up on Monday.

I hope she pulls through. It's very upsetting right now. My best friend's niece died in a car crash and he had to go to a funeral today on a rainy day, now my dog has confirmed cancer and we don't know if she's going to make it. But I think she will because the blood work will determine whether or not she's healthy enough.

I'm really sad. This is the first dog I've ever had to take care of. I've had her as my own pet for seven years now. I miss her and hope she'll be okay.

I know how it feels to have a dog go through something like this. When I was young, my mother and I went on a European tour with Wisconsin's Ambassadors of Music, and when we got back, our dog began to shut down right in front of us. By that night, she was vomiting blood, so my parents took her to the vet (because I was so jetlagged I couldn't think straight), and it turned out she had a giant tumor in her stomach, and it was too big to operate on. They had to put her to sleep right on the spot.

Ten years later, we had another dog develop congestive heart failure and had him put down as well. That was the first dog I'd ever seen put to sleep in front of me, and it was difficult -- the second most difficult thing I've ever had to do in my life, behind watching my dad wither and die right in front of me. There are people out there who might say, "It's just a dog, it's no big deal"; to them I say, "Fuck you, they're more than dogs, they're members of the family." They're like your own children, or your own little siblings; to me, especially with Buster (the dog we put down two years ago), it was like losing a little brother."

I'm here for you, man. You and your dog are in my thoughts and prayers.

Were all the replies troll replies deleted by a moderator? Or is this a case where a mod meant to delete one troll reply but now it's hiding all the replues?Just curious as there is supposed to be 5 replies apparently.

@Laxan:
I can see five replies.
The second thru fifth express sympathy for you; some include additional content.
The first reply is blank. I suspect the poster made an error of some kind.
I don’t see any trolling.
Can you read them now?

SO SORRY TO HEAR THAT

I can read them now. Thanks everyone. It means a lot. They haven't called me yet so I think she's okay right now. I'm not sure what the blood work results are, but she is getting old. The cancer would likely come back even if the operation is successful. I just want her to be around for another year or so. She's still eating and drinking fine and moving around fine, so I would feel like I made the wrong call if they operate on her and she dies from hear failure. She still has time left.

I've always wanted to make a last meal for her before she's put to sleep--grilled burgers.

Now I can't read anything again. But Sheik's fine! The surgery was successful and the cancer hadn't spread anywhere else in her body! I'm so relieved and happy that she made it out okay.

I'll post a picture of her later.

Be safe everyone. Don't panic about this whole virus situation. Don't bother hoarding food. Just be safe and informed and smart.

How do I post a Facebook image on here? I copied the link to it, but it's not showing correctly.

Facebook images may need a login to view, depending on privacy settings. You'd probably be better off uploading to an image hosting site.

You can link facebook images but the way the link is formatted means it may not embed properly I could see the image by right-clicking and pressing view image.
