Unhappy Dog with nasal mast cell cancer (3yrs)

Hi all,

I posted a few weeks back about my dog asking for a bit of advice. I followed up on that thread, but am unable to edit the title to be more accurate for the advice I am looking for.

We had a biopsy done last week and received the news on Friday that our dog has mast cell cancer in his nasal cavity.

I am writing here for any thoughts on mast cell cancer in younger dogs (median age ~10yrs), explicit experience with mast cell cancer in the muzzle region of a dog or general advice on anything mast related. I've scoured the internet for information on mast cell cancer in dogs, but have found it difficult to find details on younger dogs, or dogs with nasal specific cancer.

Age: 3 years
Sex/Neuter status: Male/Neutered
Breed: Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler) - pure
Body weight: 52lbs

I've done as much research as I can bare to read into scientific articles and case studies.. nothing I've read has given me a positive outlook on the situation. I'd like to share my research here in hopes that in the unfortunate chance, someone else has to go through this, they are able to find this post.

I'll do my best to update this as I go through the process with my dog. Link to research document


Thank you for reading. I'd appreciate any and all thoughts on the subject matter.

Here is a picture of him during a trip to the beach. He loves the beach. He's the best.

I just wanted to say that I'm very sorry. I hope there is treatment you can get for him and that he can get some help. It's heartbreaking to have our pets sick, but it can help to have support from others and someone to listen. Good luck to you both!

I don't have any mast cell cancer experience. But i wanted to also share best wishes for you guys. I've had acupuncture and alternative holistic treatments help my mom's cancer and that of several cats. It can't hurt anyway. My mom lived three years symptom free when her prognosis was less than six months and she outlived her whole survivor support group. One cat had an aggressive oral cancer and given less than a month to live but with surgery and holistic treatments he lived nine months and seemed happy and was eating and playing the whole time.
Best wishes whatever you decide. Your pup is beautiful.
