    Dog Health
    Hi, I woke up yesterday and found a small red bump above my dog's eye. It doesn't seem to bother him at all or when I touch it, and it's not hard like there's something inside. The area seems to also have lost some hair. He couldn't have gotten bit by a tick or anything. I was told that my...
  7. My Dog Won't Stop Wanting To Train

    Dog Breeds
    I have an adult Shih Tzu. I read that you should make training fun, so I did. I took him for a walk (taught him to sit before crossing the street), worked on sit command, and did scent work. Now he refuses to stop training, and he's been whining at me for about twenty-five minutes now. What...

    I have a 10 year old Shih Tzu named Prince. A while ago my mother found a small lump under the skin on his neck (about the size of a 5p coin) I looked at it and it doesn't seem to cause him any discomfort.

  13. What are the chances a dog will die during surgery to remove a mast tumor?

    Dog Health
    I just found out my dog has a mast tumor after her second vet visit. She was a few weeks old when my family got her in 2011. The vet recommended getting it removed today, but I lied and said I didn't have the money to pay. It will be $397 (I told my dad I wanted to set an appointment for my dog...
  14. What is the chance my dog would die after having a tumor removed?

    Dog Health
    I took my dog to the vet today and the vet said she has a mast tumor. I am afraid that something might go horribly wrong during her surgery, or even after. She is an aggressive dog. Both times we went to the vet, she growled at anyone who went near us. I even had to put a muzzle on her. I'm...
