Now the other pug I adopted with Bosley is in today to have a tumor removed- probably adenosarcoma(cancer of the anal sac)- I am thinking of NOT doing chemo, due to her age (14) Does anyone have experience with chemo in an elderly dog?

An excellent article and one which all Pug Attendants need to read. I am very aware of the problems and keep Hektor in during the worst of the heat normally during the middle of the day. He gets half his normal exercise if it is above 15C. My big problem is keeping his weight down. I know that many Pugs accumulate fat round the neck and this is a problem. Now the one thing I did not notice was that according to the Ophthalmic Vet that Hektor saw recently. Their hearts run slower, though we had to disabuse him that Hektor was in any way excited by being at the Vet. This was a new one on me.
