A few months ago I noticed a small lump on my dog's chest

Hey there! So a few months ago I noticed a small lump on my dog's chest and I brought him to the vet to get it checked out. They did a biopsy and it wasn't harmful. After that within the last 6 months three more lumps similar in size and feel sprung up. Should I not assume that these are not harmful and get them examined also ? Is it alarming for so many to spring up so quickly?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?Customer: His name is*****: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Dexter?Customer: Uuummmm I'm not sure if it's relevant but he is epileptic. It's been a good while since he's had a seizure tho.

I have a 6 month golden retriever. For the last two months

I have a 6 month golden retriever. For the last two months or so, she has been vomiting periodically. She will throw two or three times in one day and not throw up for three to four days, then throw up again. It seems to have gotten a little more frequent here lately (about every two to three days). She is on pepsid every twelve hours and cerenia as needed; she also just completed a round of probiotics. Throughout this time she has been happy and playful with the exception of a UTI that has now cleared up. She has vomited at all times of the day (just before meals, just after, and long after) and she has vomited almost any 'kind' you could think of (clear, white, yellow, light brown, with food present, without food present, foamy, watery, thick). She was on Authority brand large breed puppy but was switched from that due to soft stool. She is now on Purina Pro-Plan large breed puppy. She doesn't get into stuff she shouldn't that I'm aware of. Do you have any ideas as to what might be causing this? Thanks.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?Customer: No, she hasn't.JA: OK. The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the dog's name?Customer: OliveJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Olive?Customer: Olive had blood work done that showed mild anemia about a week ago.

Three months ago, I adopted a 6 yr. old female rescue boxer

Good morning, Three months ago, I adopted a 6 yr. old female rescue boxer and have fallen in love with her personality. After a month, I had 2 small growths which were under her skin, removed and the results returned cancerous. My vet recommended Palladia chemo treatment M,W, F for a year and to administer prednisone and Ondasentron and benedryl. I hate to give her any of this, because I really hoped I could build up her immune system to handle cancers, but it obviously did not "take". My question is this.... IF Palladia chemo is necessary, is there any alternatives to the prednisone that would work as well with the palladia? WHATEVER necessary, I will do, but I want to give her the absolute best chance of living a healthy, cancer-free life. Any help and suggestions would be incredibly appreciated. I am so glad I found your website where you will work through consultations. Thank you!! Terry ********* *************** JA: The Veterinarian's require payment for their services.
