Joanro so true
They should use the VET money to buy steaks for the dog probably do more good and the dog will be happy

I have heard of SO many people paying big bucks for surgery, only to have the vet find the animal riddled with cancer and euthanize it on the OR table, or die just a few months/weeks after the surgery.
Similar results happen with chemo.
I wouldn't waste my money. Just love the dog, and keep it as happy and comfortable as possible.

Summer time, the tumors were related. The one on the surface is an indication of what's inside. The liver hemangio is very common.
Dogs often don't show symptoms til they are close to death.
I had a husky cross, (wolf/ husky / gsd hybrid) sled dog, that was only eight years old when I went to his yard one morning to let him out and found him dead.
I had my vet do an autopsy..... he found a ruptured hemangiosarcoma on his liver...my vet told me my beloved Stetson bled out over night. This dog had not missed a meal, had been working in the team a couple days prior to his death.
BTW, my dog did not have so much as a pimple on his skin .his condition and coat were beautiful!

I personally would not do the chemo, it does not work the same for humans as it does for dogs. While I won't claim that it works 100% there are many out there that swear by CBD oil and THC oil. Tried it for my dogs back issues and did nothing but I know others who have used the same brand I used for dogs with hemangio and the dogs miraculously lived much longer than originally thought. Side effects are usually mild or non existent. If you are interested in the company I used PM me and I'll give you the info.

I now use a holistic vet. He has been a wealth of knowledge regarding dog nutrition and how to support the immune system. PM me if you would like the name of my vet. He does phone consultations all around the US.
