    There is a huge bump on Princess' stomach! It used to be small, but now it's pretty big. She's had it seen she had her pups (like 2 or 3 years ago), and it's been getting bigger. She hasn't changed at all since it was there, and it doesn't bother her at all. What do you think it is? Maybe a tumor or something? I couldn't get any pictures, but maybe the description will help.

    Okay. I'll try to convince Dad. If I can't, I'll call Dr. Gardener myself tomorrow cuz he's not open today. And I'll explain it to him.

    If daddy doesn't. I mean . . . . what if this "thing" is something that could be really dangerous? I couldn't imagine life without Princess, and I don't want it to be my fault cuz of laziness and carelessness that she might die.

    My brothers intact female died of mammory cancer. I am not trying to scare you or anything but you should really see a vet. At least to ease your wondering. My brother opted not to do surgery as the dog was 14 years old and at her stage would have only prolonged her life a couple months. I am glad she didn't suffer in her last days.

    I assume you are young, and your dad is responsible for the dog in the end. It should be his responsiblity to seek care for this. I hope he agrees.

    I wish you and your dog the best.

    Sorry, but sounds like it could be mammary cancer to me. Is she spayed? If she's not spayed or was spayed after she had a heat cycle the risk is higher. Get her to the vet ASAP, it's a very serious form of cancer!

    When is her heat cycle? We spayed her after she had the pups, (about 2 or three years ago) when she was 5 or 6.

    The woman said she was fixed, but we found out she wasn't when she had puppies with a mini pin.

    She really needs to go to the vet asap. The sooner you bring her, the cheaper the vet care will be.
