Customer Question
Symptoms in female Rott/hound...

Symptoms in female Rott/hound mix 6 yrs old: lameness due to soreness R shoulder, diarrhea, lethargy, UTIs. Second vet took x-rays of shoulder which showed nodule-like tumors in lung. UTIs began in August. Treated 3 times to date with stron ger antibiotics. Lameness last 4 weeks. Diarrhea has been abated with diet & meds. How can one tell the difference between fungal infection & lung cancer?

Veterinarian's Assistant: 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 dog?

We had to put down her companion about 4 weeks ago due to hip dysplasia, vomiting, & diarrhea (12 yr. old F lab mix) that we had been doctoring for a while. We thought this one was depressed and not too concerned until diarhea and lameness started.

We went back to our vet last evening and received clarification of cancer diagnosis and got our questions answered. I do not need your services any longer. I expected a response within 24 hours. Please cancel my question. Thank you. Nancy
