Wendi sending hugs and prayers for you.  I know you are missing Charlotte.  She is now happy and cancer free and know how much  she was loved by you.  You gave her your best when you let her go.........

I am so, so sorry. Know that you did everything for the sweet girl that you could. She was so loved and that is what every pug deserves. She is now healthy and waiting for you at the Bridge. Hugs to you.

mast cells

Post  wendy.delly.5 on 11/8/2013, 1:55 pm

Hi, just saw this now as I am new to the site. I lost PB to mast cell tumors, I think that vet was anti rescue dogs, especially old ones, .."why waste money, there are so many healthy dogs out there", and "you have other pugs, what's losing one?" PB was a ten year old rescue, blind, and one of the sweetest pugs I had! My current vet treats mast cell tumors (small ones) with diphenhydramine (Benadryl) and it completely stops the growth and no new ones appear. This is especially good for my elderly pugs that might not tolerate surgery.

wendy,

Yes our vet does the same mixed with low dose of pred. Charlotte's mass was huge on her ear. They couldn't get clear margins when they removed her ear. so it eventually went into her her lymph system. 

Weird thing just happened. After Charlotte passed, one of the families who had gotten one of Charlotte's puppies called and needed to to return her to me. SO of coarse i took her back.. I just had a grade 2 mass cell removed off her chest this past week. They got good clean margins with this so we will just watch her. if anything arises, we will probably do the benadryl and pred therapy. I know it has worked really well on a couple of our dogs in foster.
