You can do all kinds of tests and treatments for cancer, but the outcome will be the same. Treatment can prolong their life, but can also cause many side effects. She told me dogs and people can live with cancer without treatment, it's a decision you have to make based on her health and how she feels, she told me it comes down to her quality of life, if she she isn't in any pain, and she's eating and drinking normal, then she could live a normal life and then when the time comes when she no longer is having a quality life, or is suffering then you make the decision of what's best for her, and when it is time to put her down and end her suffering. Fortunately for us Oreo lived another two years until 14 years old, and she passed away 3 years ago, but we didn't have to make that decision, she passed away in her sleep and so we didn't have to put her down.

    Whatever decision you decide on with your vet, will be done with what's best for Abby, and with love. You will do whatever you can to keep her healthy, and pain free and when the time comes you will make the right decision for her. I understand and know how sad you feel and how heart wrenching this is, and I hope and wish for you to get some more quality time with your baby Abby. Sending love, hugs and prayers for you, and your family, and Abby. Take care Hun and please keep us updated on Abby.
    Praying for you and your Abbey. My niece's Dob/Dal. was diagnosed with this same condition. She opted for removal, but it returned. She decided to enjoy him while she could and as long as he had reasonable quality of life. When he couldn't eat much she hand fed him. He had pain meds. She learned, as I have learned that when the time comes, THEY seem to let you know. You can see it in their eyes. Then you do the kindest thing you can do for them. It tears you apart, but as they always forgive you in life, they know you did the BEST for them. BUT perhaps your results will be more hopeful and she will have years more. I will, as all others are too, pray for a hopeful outcome. GOD bless you and Abbey.

    I have limited experience with doggie cancer. My childhood pet chiuaua had doggie breast cancer. Just like in humans she had a lump that turned out to be malignant. My moms church raised money to have Lucku operated on and all of her mammory glands (is it called the same thing for dogs?) Were removed.from one side. We had no idea she had been living in pain, and not feeling well, we just thought she was slowing down with age. As soon as she had the surgery it was like she was a puppy again, full of spirit and energy. She lived for quite a few years after that until eventually going blind and then passing from old age. She ended up living almost 20 years.

    So sorry you have to go through this. Just wanted to say I had a Scottie who was diagnosed with malignant melanoma in her foot at 9 years of age. They amputated her toe but told me it was an aggressive type of cancer and spreads so to prepare for the inevitable within the year. Well she lived another 71/2 years healthy and happy and passed at 17 of a tumor in her tummy. It happened fast. So there is always hope. You and Abby are in my thoughts and prayers. I pray Abby will now be cancer free.
