HI this is DRB and I would be happy to help you with this. Unfortunately, these are not very good signs in a 10 year old Boxer. More than likely what you are dealing with is some type of intra abdominal cancer. The very best thing you can do in this situation is to have her put down with humane euthanasia so she does not have to suffer . I am very very sorry to have to give you this type of news. This job is really hard when we have to deliver this type of news. I do hope that this has helped you though in some way to help your little girl.
Please hit arte this question as that is the only way I am compensated. I will be happy to answer follow up questions once you rate my answer. Also I will be retiring for the evening soon but I check my computer each night and will get back to you by tomorrow night. Take care, DRB
Hi this is DRB. Sorry I missed your question last night. I have seen many dogs in your little girls situation. And with what you are describing along with her age, it is not so much a waste of money as it is the outcome is very likely to be the same with all you have described. There is about a 95% chance you will have to put her to sleep no matter what else you do. I made the recommendation not in an effort to save you money but rather to save her suffering. I hope this clears things up for you. Certainly, if you have more questions I will get back to you tonight after work. Take good care, DRB
