The mass is not palpable and her stomach is hard. She is having difficulty defecating. Fat Amy is a black bear hamster. Does that make a difference in her life expectancy? Isn't lymphoma a mass on the body meaning she has a severely swollen stomach. The xray showed one internal mass, what could be gallstones and fluid. Why didn't my vet recommend the inhalation anesthetic and is it common to use this on a hamster. Sorry for all the questions but this is a big decision.
Lastly, what is the cost of such surgery, just a range?
