    DefaultGracie has been diagnosed with mass cell...

    Hi, It has been a while. I just found out today that my Gracie who is 4 yrs old has mass cell tumor, grade 2. I am sick with worry. Please any advice from those who have been there is much appreciated. I am talking with my vet about what to do next...

    No experience here, but I will be praying for you and Gracie. Let us know what the vet says. Did they take a needle sample of the tumor? Maybe a second sample to confirm that diagnosis is in order.

    Sending good thoughts & prayers for Gracie. My friend's lab just had a mast cell tumor removed a few months ago. She is doing well.

    Nellie is 5 year survivor. She had pretty radical surgery to save her leg and then 5 weeks of radiation. Prayers to you that all goes well.

    Shanny was diagnosed at 5 or 6. She just turned 14.

    May I ask where her tumor was. Gracie's was on her inner flank. They said they did not get all of it. I need to talk with the vet tomorrow..I was just a mess today when they told me..I absorbed nothing. I am exploring all our options now...we have a dog at the shelter that has mast cell stage 2..he is being treated with Loumostine and prednisone..he is doing very well..thanks for your words of encouragement.

    Laura may I ask what was done for Shanny? I have not spoke to the vet on what course of treatment we will be doing or what he recommends...I was just a mess today. I am so encouraged by the fact that Shanny is 14. May I also ask what grade she was?
