    DefaultSamson to the vet with wobbly legs

    No problem with the legs themselves - just anti inflammatories and see how he goes.

    However he has a hard lump on one of his testicles. The vet says that testicular tumours are a slow growing tumour but it could easily spread to the rest of his body at any time.

    He also said that now is the time to make the decision as if i leave it months it may be too late.

    He is 12 1/2 years old... Should I elect for surgery ? It's just that surgery is always a risk never mind the age of the pup. They will also x ray his back at the same time just to make sure it IS his legs that are giving him trouble.

    That surgery should be fairly low risk but considering the risk of not removing that tumor I would definitely opt for the procedure.
