My Little Boxer has a Mast Cell Tumor
My 1.5 year old boxer Mugsie was diagnosed today with a low grade mast cell tumor at the front and back of his ear. This explains the soo many problems we have had with him from when we adopted him 1 year and 2 months ago.
He has had a chronic urinary tract infection that took us 5 months to clear up. He has to have a vet brand food urinary SO. He also has had recurrent sheath infections.
Unfortunately removal of the tumor is not an option for us as it requires amputation of the ear followed by plastic surgery and we don't want to put him through that, especially since we went through losing our 3.5 year old boxer "Buddy" last year to a nasal tumor.
Our vet is a natural vet and hopefully will be able to come up with some Chinese herbs that will keep the tumor at bay and possibly reverse it. We will find out in a couple of days and keep our fingers crossed that it helps.
Does anyone have any suggestions that may help?
