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 and my aunt overheard and replied that it was "too expensive and that the dog was "mean anyways" Did she imply that I should just let my dog die?ugh). I don't have a paying job and the money I have to pay is actually from college grants. No one else is willing to pay, so I would be using what I got from college grants. So, technically, I actually do have the money, it's just that I'm afraid of what might happen in the process. Has a dog ever died during this procedure? How was the procedure like for your dog? Did your dog live long after the surgery? How was the healing process? These are questions I should probably ask the vet, but I want to read from others' experiences. Any words of encouragement? Attached the picture of my dog's tumor.
