I am very sorry to read this news. Fletcher had a tumor (melanoma) on his lip and the vet said it looked benign and I was so relieved at this news. He had it removed with clean margins.
Then the pathology report revealed it as malignant. I was a mess after hearing this. We had a consult with an oncologist and the vet was very concerned at the aggressiveness of the cancer cells splitting so Fletcher had to undergo a second surgery to get wider margins. We started the melanoma vaccine after surgery (Nov.2011) He beat the melanoma but hermangio was what took him last month.
I am sending healing prayers your way. I know how you feel.

Our prayers and thoughts are with you

We too here in the UK took our Barnaby for a wart removal which later turned out to be cancer, the attitude of the vet was disgraceful, our thoughts and prayers are with you at this terrible time, with all our best wishes across the miles x

I immediately got tears in my eyes reading the op. I am so very sorry. So many of us can share our tears with yours over cancer and beloved goldens, but that is no consolation for you.

I thank each and every one of you who has taken the time to reply, and to pray, and to send good wishes. I cannot express how much this means to me and how lucky I feel to have you all here. I know you all understand. I don't even need to say certain things - and you will understand.

I feel exhausted right now - mostly mentally. But I didn't sleep much either, my mind was just spinning through everything. I am just so confused and devastated. And then poor Tee threw up at 5:30am. Hopefully that was just the addition of the new antibiotic. Her poor tummy has so many drugs going into it right now. When we woke again later in the morning, she came and snuggled up right beside me. She has always known what's in my heart. I stayed in bed with her beside me for almost an extra hour.

Otherwise, she continues to be her bright little self. It just kills me looking at her jumping out of her skin (she has had no walks, nevermind a run in a week). I just think, how how how? She ate all her food this morning. She looks good - except for the big wound underneath that is still dripping and still red.

The appt is at 2:30 this afternoon. I will come back and give an update. I'm going to reply to a few specific messages, but please know how much each of you being there is helping me. Thank you.
