Sorry I haven't posted much.

two days ago I found another lump on Nellie's stomach while I was brushing her. It does not feel like a lipoma but like the cancerous lump I found last August. I am furious at the vet oncologist who we saw 3 weeks ago. I'm sure the lump was there when he checked her out.

Anyway, I am trying to decide what to do. If it is cancer that means it has metasticized (sp). If so I will not put her through trying to save her again since it would be futile and painful for her. Not sure what I am doing right now. If it is nothing but a bug bite (which it could be since she has been laying in the grass a lot) it will go away if it is cancer I don't know if I am prepared.

Oh no. Prayers that it's only a bug bite. Oh please, God.

Have you taken her in to get it checked yet?

I hope that you are wrong Danie ! Best wishes for our beautiful girl !

You know - don't be too hard on the vet ! I know my pups like the back of my hand , but only because I smother them with loving attention !

I fail to see how a cursory examination by a concerned observer can be better then an owners knowledge ?

Sorry to hear this.

Colin - I would hope that my vet would be looking for this type of thing, especially if my dog went thru what Nellie did.

Best wishes and thoughts possible for Nellie. I hope that you are just paranoid and over protective of your baby. Here's hoping for a bug bite.
