My 11 year old Maltese/Japanese mix has an epulis on her

My 11 year old Maltese/Japanese Chen mix has an epulis on her upper lip. My vet says it requires an invasive, expensive surgery to remove it. This is not an option for us. Are there other things we can do to buy her time. He mentioned some type of laser treatment that could shrink the tumor and give us more time. He also mentioned that if we had the tumor removed without taking bone and teeth it would come back faster and more aggressively. What to do?!

We were playing with our almost 1 year old poodle this

We were playing with our almost 1 year old poodle this morning and found something on one of her teeth. We're not sure if we should worry or not. We took a picture, but it looks like a darker white part over the top of the tooth. It is definitely in top of the tooth because I felt the ridge with my finger nail, but it's not just stuck on crud. It's attached.

My dog was just diagnoses with a mild to moderate left leaky

my dog was just diagnoses with a mild to moderate left leaky valve. and a tricuspid insufficiency in the right. (results from an Echo this morning, prompted by a heart murmur detected on Wed). He is only 4 years old. Is a shih-tzu. And the MD said that we are to bring him back in 9-12 months for another echo. My question is (of course I am panicked, as I worship my puppy)...when I asked the MD if this will reduce longevity, he said "most likely, yes"; but does that mean- within a few months/ years? will he reach double digits? or later in life? I am so upset. And just want some clarity. Thank you.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?Customer: No. his behavior is perfectly normal. he is happy. energetic. eats and drinks well. and his blood pressure is normal/ low.JA: Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page where you can book your 1:1 with the Veterinarian. I'll share everything we've discussed.
