Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
HI this is DRB and I am sorry to hear about your Lucy's illness. I have a client right now who has a dog with same situation diagnosed a year ago. Their dog has lived a year but they have spent probably 15-20 grand easy.So your vet is correct that you would spend alot of money. The other truth is that when a vet discovers this type of tumor you already have metastatic disease which has spread. So don't feel bad about not doing the chemo and surgery and all that. As far as what the tail thing is about. Many dogs that have the typical arched tail will stop doing that when they just don't feel well. So my concern is that this might be her way of letting us know that she does not feel well. I hope this helps you and please feel free to ask follow up questions as I check my computer each night. Sincerely, DRB
