Dharma, our beloved Papillon, was recently diagnosed with mast cell cancer. It started with 3 tumor like growths. Our regular vet biopsied them and gave us the diagnosis. They offered to do surgery to remove the 3 tumors. The problem with this option as a solution is the following week, 3 more tumors may pop up. Mast cell cancer can pop up anywhere.
We found an alternative medicine vet who is doing immune system support, acupuncture, medicinal mushrooms, and homeopathics. She currently has her good days and bad days. Not bad for a 12 year precious pup!
