They found round cells and granular cells and the pathologist diagnosed it as a mast cell tumour.
Iím waiting for a call back with a quote just so I have a general idea of how much $ Iíll have to spend and to set up an appointment for the surgery in the next week or so. Heíll have to be put under to take the tumour out with some skin around it, to ensure it does not spread to nearby cells. As most of you are probably familiar with, there are 4 grades of the mast cell tumour and the tumour will be tested for the grade once removed.
To look on the positive side, my vet is hoping (and so am I) that Sabaís will be grade 1 and that will be the end of it. Heís only 4 years old, heís very healthy and energetic and therefore there is good reason to believe that itís only grade 1. I just donít like the fact that it is a tumour and that he will have to be put under for the surgery. Thankfully itís a day procedure and heíll be home that evening.
I'll have to do some internet research on the mast cell tumour once I'm done work tonight... I just hope and pray that it will turn out not serious but we'll have to wait and see.
Sending good thoughts!
Lots of prayers for Saba...hugs too
Lots of good thoughts for you and Saba!
Lots of good thoughts and prayers on the way for you both.
Holy crap Agnes... I'm sorry that it wasn't nothing - that said though, there are lots of people on here who have had to have MCT's removed from their pups and all is well now - Jrzgrduff comes to mind with Frankie.
Me, Abzilla and the Helomonster.
Praying for you and Saba.
Sorry to hear your news about Saba's MCT like you say he has youth and strength on his side and you caught him early so the op should put an end to it.
Love and good thoughts to you both from us here xx

Praying for grade 1 and a speedy recovery for Saba.
