    Default Searching for a trustworthy good oncologist in South Florida

    Hello all,

    Our 11 years old English bulldog has developed in the past couple of months a small mass in between his front teeth. The mass is slowly growing. The family vet believes it is some kind of a tumor. We are searching for a good and trustworthy oncologist in South Florida to help us with a diagnosis. Given our bulldog's age and a hearth condition (PHT) we want to be careful to avoid long procedures under anesthesia unless absolutely necessary.

    Any recommendations ?

    Thank you.

    Hi, I'm sorry, your bully baby is going through this, and I hope you find a good specialist. I'm sorry I'm not able to recommend one, as I live in Canada, and am not familiar with doctors in the USA. Have you asked your vet for a referral?
    or do you have either a good vet hospital with specialists, or a teaching hospital that may have different specialists on board. Maybe a member who has some experience with dogs and Oncology will come along and offer some advice or suggestions. Sending love, hugs and prayers to you and Dutch.

    DD, I found the following at Finding an Oncologist . I cannot vouch for these doctors but as @Vikinggirl mentioned above....maybe your vet can recommend. I am sorry to hear that Dutch has a growth and I do hope you get it resolved.

    Thank you all for your kind words. Dutch was diagnosed with a benign growth tumor by Dr. Correa and Dr. Weinstein at the Animal Cancer Care Center. Taking into account several factors, including his heart condition, we took Dr. Weinstein's advice and he did a minor operation to remove the visible part of the tumor from the front of his mouth. Dutch has been doing well so far and we hope that things will stay this way.
