My 11 year old Lab has had volley ball sized tumor on back…

Customer Question
My 11 year old...

My 11 year old Lab has had volley ball sized tumor on back leg for about one year. Grew to size extremely rapidly. No oozing copious amounts bloody discharge. Vet says tumor probably outgrew blood supply and is becoming necrotic. Not sure what to do, cannot see our vet for a week, cannot afford huge expenses. Currently bandaging daily. Dog is still eating, peeing, pooping, back legs very weakened but she does not seem in pain.

Veterinarian's Assistant: 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?

Jasmine

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Jasmine?

She has multiple lipomas, mostly small, has had a tennis ball sized one on chest for eight years. Had sarcoma removed from front leg 1 1/2 years ago. Has always been very active dog but began to have unusual seizure-type activity with incontinence after exercise one year ago so we stopped walking her. Vet unable to explain seizures.
