Mammary Cancer experience by - Denise
Fort Myers Florida

My experience was a very sad one, I lost my 11 year old shortie JRT to mammary cancer, I rescued Tipsy from a shelter at her age of 7, she wasn't spayed till she was adopted. This June I found a lump on her belly, I took her to my vet right away, they did surgery to remove it, but she passed away 2 weeks later, it had already spread to her lungs. I would suggest if you ever find a lump on your female dog, please do an xray first, to make sure it hasn't already spread. I was not given that option my vet did surgery first and then an xray. I would of never put my baby through that surgery if I had already known it had spread. I would of let her live out her time playing and eating till she shown physical symptoms. Instead of her laying in pain after a surgery she obviously didn't need.Tipsy I will always love and miss you.
