Customer Question

just been diagnosised with a large firm vulvar mass
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Some lumps are serious and some aren't. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: cleo 11 and a half
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Cleo 11?
Customer: they did a cytology which revealed rods, cocci and neutrophils and round cells
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.

I'm sorry for this concern for Cleo. I do have a few additional questions to ask about her first if you don't mind:

1. Is Cleo having any difficulties when she's urinating?

2. Is your vet suggesting that the mass be removed or are they recommending that a biopsy be submitted?

There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
