Sorry to hear that your baby has MCT, I can sympathise as my 5 year old has had them come up and then mysteriously disappear, skin scrapes diagnosed MCT but after steroids and anti histamine they all went except for one which was operated on, clean margins but the wound is still there as it was on her foot and there wasn’t much skin or fat. I took her to a holistic vet and have mushroom complex and other herbs to give her to strengthen the immune system. We know there will be another one, but are hoping the herbs and mushroom complex will slow them down. Best of luck with your journey

I’m so glad to hear that the vet wasn’t concerned with Tundra’s bump, hopefully they don’t change!!

Thank you for sharing your story, Berkshire. I hope your pup is tumor free for many years to come.

Bruschis tummy problem is better, now we are slowly introducing his normal diet again. The bump on his back leg seems to be getting smaller too. I’m hoping it disappears and we never see it again.

Thank you so much for everyone’s kind words and encouragement!! ❤️

That is encouraging news on Tundra I agree with you its not a good idea to put them under too much and its good they can do both things at once. I hope all goes well I know you will be relieved when those things are off!

Don't worry dear! You being pessimistic can't give your pup a positive vibe.
God bless your pup and let him be in better health. After consulting the Vet, if you need any pet care treatments at the best price online, click here to avail them at cheapest price

How is Bruschi doing now? I hope the lumps are continuing to shrink.

Bruschi is doing well, thanks! The bump on his back leg seems to be getting smaller/flatter which is good! His surgery is Tuesday and part of me is excited that this new bump may be gone by then but another part of me wants to know what it is and hope it can be removed and biopsied... We will see

Glad he's doing well! I'm sure Tuesday can't get here soon enough, at least for you to start getting some answers. No one wants their baby to have to have surgery...I hope all goes well.

I will keep good thoughts going for Bruschi and all turns out well for you guys. None of us like going thru these things its always scary to put your dog under for things. But we hope for the best for you! Keep us updated

Hi all,

Bruschi is home! He has 2 pretty big incisions (way bigger than I thought). They took the bump on his leg with large margins and are sending it out. They also took a small bump off of his toe.. they couldn’t get margins on that one so if it comes back mast tumor they will have to take the entire toe... 😩 he’s slow moving today but eating and drinking. It’s going to be a long week but I’m glad he’s home.

I am glad he came thru the surgery ok that's good. I will keep the good thoughts going for you guys though it sounds like you have been staying on top of his lumps I think that's about all we can do is keep vigilant and keep getting them removed. Please let us know how he does. One of my previous males had one of those lumps on the side of his foot and I remember what a PIA it was to keep him from licking at it, he ended up ripping it open again and getting it re stitched I hate it when they have to have anything done with feet or ears those are the worst surgery sites that I have had to care for. Good luck to you guys!
