I am sorry to hear about nemo I just lost a female pug @13 to a mass cell tumor ... She was 13yrs. old surgery was not a good ideal due to her age... Have it tested to see if it is cancerous... Or just have it removed... Let me know how nemo makes out...

can you tell me what the mast cell tumor looks like? my pug has two little bumps under her skin and i'll be taking her to the vet next week.
thanks.
Please use caution if your thinking about chemo, I lost my 6yr. old Chloe' and I truly believe that it was due to the long term effects from the Chemo. She was actually cancer free after her third surgery, but I did the Chemo.as a precaution to the return of the mast cell tumors.

"I haven't been on in a long time.  I was wondering if there will be any pug walks in Spokane in the near future?  I'd love for Hattie and me to be a part of a group and a grumble at a local pug walk!"

The price of medication

I do not know what people get charged for medication for their dogs throughout the reach of Pugslife but I want to tell you what has happened to us.Hektor has an eye problem which requires drops and these will probably be for the remainder of his life. These were prescribed by the Opthalmic Vet he attends for his eye problems. I used to buy them there until I discovered what they were charging for them, at that time £14+.  I then contacted our own vet and they were getting them for me on a 3?4…See More
