I empathize with T.S.
New to the forum, I have had to look into euthanizing my 9 y.o. male wienreimer/pit mix. Aprox. 2 months ago he started not accepting his milkbone after his walk. Shortly thereafter he began not accepting his purina dog chow, so we switched to a soft chewing dog food by the same maker. Feeling around his neck and throat we noticed a mass on either side. Last weekend we got him to his vet, and rite off the vet said lymphatic carcinoma. He did an aspiration to which he drew out clear fluid, and sent it off to be read. Bandit was started on tetracycline with no real result noticable. This morning the vet called and said the test showed no sign of cancer. thank my Creator, and he would like to start him on some new antibiotics this weekend. he continues to lose weight from 86 lbs. down to 62 lbs last week. He will take turkey left over from Thanksgiving, however that is running very low. Has anyone had any experience with these mass' next to your pets throat? He has also developed a tick when he sleeps. Not noticeable during waking hours. He continues to take his daily walks 2 to 3 times a day, his coat looks to be in good shape. He has had several days that he looked as if he was ready to expire, these mass' seem to travel until recently, one day they were in the front and his extra skin from weight loss was hanging very low. Yet the next day his skin around his neck tightened back up. I will go to see the vet tomorrow or Sat. and get his care plan, I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience. Thanks! Shado.
