My 8 yo Boxer (neutered male) was treated for a mast cell

My 8 yo Boxer (neutered male) was treated for a mast cell tumor about four months ago. Lately he's had days when he sleeps most of the day, other days he feels better. Now he has a lump on his neck, about where the neck meets the shoulder, about the size of a grape and firm. Any thoughts?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the Boxer?Customer: Joe had surgery for an intestinal obstruction when he was a pup and seems to be missing much of his intestines - vet refused to discuss with me. Joe is current on heart worm mess and comfortis. We stopped going to dog park because he picks up infections.

Well unfortunately he passed away as the vet was

Well unfortunately he passed away as the vet was "de-gloving " after a 2-hr surgery to neuter and then remove 7-8 2-3 cm polyps surrounbding his anal area. Long story-short , the vet who did the surgery walked us through everything and Viper (14 2/3 yrs old) needed to have a med to bring his BP back to 60 or so (it had been 70 throughout) apparently about 10 min or so before end, but since BP was "corrected slightly," they fimsihed sewing him up when the nurse saw that he had stopped breathing and then his heart stopped -they tried CPR for 10 min, to no avail,epeniphrine to no avail. We are shocked as this was 6 days ago and wondered whether we ought to have asked for a necropcy even though that would not mbring Viper back. What do you think? The surgery lasted 2 hrs and Viper apparently missed by min of waking up. They say it 3rd case in 14 yrs out of 1-2 per week so that is about 0.4 %(3 out of approx. 1400). WE are totally heartbroken. The vet indicated there wsnt anything else that could be done.JA: I'll do all I can to help. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: Wound on their foot??JA: What is the Viper's name?Customer: Last name is*****: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Last name?Customer: To ber clear, the dog's name is Viper
