Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello,Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is***** am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
I am sorry to hear about the tumor in your dog's mouth. Sadly, unless the tumor is removed, it will continue to grown and to bleed. Was your vet not able to remove it?
The Chinese herb Yunnan Baiyao, which you can find online and in some stores that carry Chinese medicines, can be helpful with bleeding tumors.
Your vet might make for you a dilute combination of epinephrine and sterile saline solution. It may help with bleeding episodes, just apply it to the bleeding area.
Sadly, this will get worse as the tumor enlarges. Is it not possible to remove it?
Let me know what other questions you have.
Sorry I was not online when you got back to me!
I can understand not wanting to put an older dog through this surgery, if it is so large.
Let me know if the Yunnan Baiyao helps; it has been used for decades to help control bleeding. If you have any other questions, let me know. Kindly consider rating my answer so the website knows I assisted you!
I hope you were able to see my response; I have not heard back from you! How is he doing?
Please let me know if this was helpful and if you have any more questions I can answer.
