Lynne is spot on with the Tagamet and Benadryl. Benadryl is the H1 blocker Tagamet the H2.

If I may ask what do you feed your pups? The reason I ask is once a dog has been diagnosed with cancer even a MCT that was removed with clean margins it's best to change their diet to a high protein low carb diet especially low carbs since cancer feeds on carbs.

Hi Sue, thank you for your reply! They are currently eating Diamond Naturals (only a 3 star food), but my budget has recently loosened up a bit, so I'm looking into higher quality food. I'm interested in raw, but still a bit intimidated, so I will try to find a low carb kibble, any suggestions are welcome!

One kibble I would suggest that is low in carbs are most any of the Evo brand foods. The lowest is Evo Weight Management with 11% carbs. Most of the other Evos are in the 12-18% carbs range. One thing I have found out when researching for low carb food for Gouda was not all grain free foods are low carb and not all low carb foods are grain free, they are not synonymous. For me I would try to find a food low in carbs and grain free which can be walking a thin line. But, if I had a dog with cancer I would take low carbs over grain free any day.

Keep us updated on your baby!

I have been bugging my vet nonstop, poor ppl. So it's an "early mast cell tumor". This is the 2nd one, I need to get proactive. I will be researching, I know Sue put out lots of info, any advice is welcome. The 1st one was on her left leg, this one is on her chest. Think this is a bad sign :-(

Usually if a dog has one Mast Cell Tumor the odds are they will get more at some point in their lifetime. Benadryl and Tagamet, herbs and supplements, good diet geared towards a dog with cancer and being diligent about checking for lumps/bumps and reacting quickly when one does appear is the best course of action in my opinion.
