      It's Cancer. Again.

      As I sit here typing this tears are selling up and I am angry. This is now my 3rd dog with cancer. In a span of 1 year. It's China now. Her mammary tumor.or was cancerous and the vet recommends I see an oncologist. She said it was low grade but they tend to be aggressive and spread. I'm confused. I thought low grade meant not so scary. I will make some calls tomorrow to get ideas on a consult with an oncologist but let's be honest: I have spent so much money on vet bills and with this latest surgery I have put a lot non my credit card. My husband will flip. What's best for China takes priority though at the moment. I just can't believe this. 3 dogs...cancer....unbelievable.

      Anyone have any experience with mammary cancer in dogs? Forgive me if I asked already I am beside myself in disbelief.

      Oh no!!! I have no words of experience, just lots and lots of sympathy. Life is so unfair. Hugs to you and China.

      I've lost 4 to cancer over the years. 3 Osteosarcoma, 1 mast cell tumors. I also lost a young girl to what was most likely a brain tumor before she was 2. I feel your pain. I hope China's tumor is treatable and she lives a long happy life. My heart goes out to you.

      Oh NO!

      Potion had a mammary tumor right at the nipple. Surgery was done, nipple and gland removed and she did very well.

      Sending mojo and prayers.

      Cancer sucks! I am so sorry. No words of advice, just that I hope that this can be remedied and a speedy recovery.

      I hate cancer, too many people and animal companions taken much to early. Good thoughts for China that it's treatable.
