Shar pei has grown a growth of some sort?

My 9 year old shar pei has developed a growth on her belly the last few weeks. it just keeps getting bigger and bigger. initially i thought it was a tick so i gently tried to remove it but i soon discovered it was attached to her skin and it caused her pain for me to try and remove it. I really really don’t have money for the very but am very very worried. If anyone had any idea what it was i would be so grateful.

It's a tumor, and if it is fast growing it will only get bigger and start hurting her with the weight pulling on her skin.

Your dog needs medical attention, and if you can't afford it right now, see if you can get family and friends to help pool the money together. Perhaps you can call around and see if a vet in your area has a payment plan, or if there is a vet who does low cost vet care for animals of homeless people, perhaps he/she is willing to help you out.
The growth could also be cancerous, and the sooner it is removed the better her chances!

If none of those are an option it will be best to surrender your dog for her to have the chance to get medical treatment.

She needs to be taken to a Vet, for diagnosis and removal. She is depending on you to figure out a way to take care of her.


Check with your local shelter, they often have low cost clinics.

Growwth

While this is definitely something that needs to be addressed with a veterinarian, I'd say there are some less expensive alternatives in terms of treatment. Nutrition is a critical component in terms of abnormalities in the body. I've used supplements for my pets to help create a better immune system for them. Personally I rely on the Budwig Diet- there is a product called Buddy custard that incorporates this protocal- something to check out.
