Ahh, well. My 13 year old pomeranian just had a large lump surgically removed. She's home and full of p!ss and vinegar as usual. We just got a call from the vet telling us that the lump they removed is a grade 3 mast cell tumour and she has only 6 months at most to live. I'm not thinking straight right now, and I'm possibly not making sense. Tell me if this post doesn't make sense. I'm not sure what to do? Currently she seems like her old self. Should I get a second opinion? How do I do that? The lump started off as a squishy mass on her elbow/arm. The vet said it was a fatty lipoma and we needn't worry. Then it got bigger, he said not to worry. It got rock hard and he said she probably bumped it and it got infected, but to be safe, we should remove it. So we did. They found out it was a tumour, but said it looked benign. And now we hear she has 6 months. It sounds like he's always wrong.. of course I'm clinging on the tiniest chance that he's wrong again. Should I ask another vet?
