|BETTER BUT NOT CURED (1)||50%|
I am fostering a 6 year old male Chocolate Lab. He came to me with a tumor hanging off his hind quarter the size of a grapefruit. I raised enough money to have the surgery for what the vet thought was a "fatty tumor" boy was he wrong. It was a mass cell tumor and he thought he got it all, but the surgery was 3 weeks ago and his leg keeps swelling up and he's been on 2 rounds of prednisone, benadryl every 8 hours and 3 rounds of antibiotics. Another vet thinks that the surgery stirred up another tumor that was unknowingly present. They are recommending amputation (with no guarantees), putting him down, or just letting him hang out until he's uncomfortable and then putting him down. I am determined to prove them wrong and to have him here for a very long time. Any ideas or information is welcomed. I understand tumeric, castor oil, black strap molasses. Do I do all 3? Do I give it to him orally or topically? He's roughly 75 lbs so what would an appropriate dosage be and how often and for how long? Forever?
