    :) Hello everyone my names melanie owner of Smudgeberty smudge for short. Smudge is a pointer, beagle springer cross, she will be 10 in may. At the end of November last year she had an operation to remove a lump from one of her teats, one on her back and one on her neck. The results came back that the one on her teat was cancer, i was devistated, the vet said they had removed it all, but to be sure it didnt come back he advised to have all her mammeris removed, which is an expensive operation and a big one. The vet coulndnt guarantee that it may have spread to her lungs, so then the op would be pointless. She has a pea like lump on another teat which shes had for a few years but the vet said leave it unless it gets bigger, she also has two other lumps one on her side and one on her neck which could be fatty lumps. In herself shes lively eats well as silly as ever, im torn between having her operated on her letting nature take its course and let her be happy while she can, its so hard to decide what to do for the best i just want her to live forever. Anyway lets not get morbid, about me i just love animals, especially dogs, i like camping, walking and alcohol and Johny depp. Well there you go hello everybody .

    hi and welcome to the forum

    i know what your going through my old boy had troubles as well, he was 11 1/2
    we decided to not have the op done, he had bone growth touching the spinal cord 50 50 if was going to be ok or not and then there was his age as well as it would have been a mayor op for him and if we left it, it could get worse and unable to op.
    its a hard deciding what to do for the best about your dog.
    could you xray her to see if its in her lungs firstly.
