Unknown sore in gr's nose.



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

hi i'm not sure if the image link works but i really hope it does because i really want to know what this is. i really need help. i've no idea what this is and it's the crucial stage already. it was a small lump in feb and it grea bigger. nasal blood and discharge are seen everday. now it's worst, like a waterfall. it swells really bad now and it bleeds.

this is gino. he has difficulty in breathing and we can't do any testings or treatments simply because he is 15. we consulted the vets and ask what are the options. they said it might be a tumor/ cancerous tumor/ fungal infection/ lupus (autoimmune disease) i did some research myself as well and these are the various options. the thing is in order to receive treatment and all it has to be tested via general anethesia. and due to the fact he is 15, we can't do it as even the vets don't advise us on old dogs as they might not wake up. both treatment of tumor and cancer requires radiation and chemo or surgery which needs anethesia. therefore, we gave him fungal infection medication as if it's a fungus it will clear up. he was on steriods/ antibiotics/ fungal medication however... it got worst.

i plan to euthanized him soon as with the rate the blood goes ozzing out, he might faint. it's like a waterfall and it happens 2-3 times a day. he can't breathe well and can't sleep at all. he pants and practically tries very hard to breathe. however, his appetite is WONDERFUL. i need help. someone pls tell me the right way.

Incessant panting and not being able to sleep means Gino is in a whole lot of pain. That sore/growth looks extremely painful.

Oh my! Poor Gino! That looks so painful! It definitely looks like more than a fungal infection. The vet could run a culture and sensitivity test to rule out or try to come to a conclusion perhaps. I am bothered by the black part. Have you tried benedry and pain medication. At this point, I would be more concerned about keeping your boy comfortable above all else. I applaud you for having had the fortunate 15 years with Gino. You and Gino are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

hi tennyson and blondie. thank you for your concern.

i'm so lost to what to do. we're afraid of giving him any medication because we are worried it might be an overdosage... and might cause the situation to overturn. i think it's really painful too. pains for me. i really wish sometimes he can just go in his sleep. we are contemplating euthanasia. but...

this is how it looks like when he bleeds,

Oh my goodness. That looks very sore. I'm sorry I can't offer much advice as I am new here but didn't want to read and run. Thinking about you and your pup.

I am so sorry you and your boy Gino are going through this. He is beautiful, I am sorry for the decisions you are being forced to make. My thoughts are with you.

That second to last pic of Gino laying there bleeding shows a dog in a great deal of distress. Look at his eyes.
Goldens are infamous for hiding pain and Gino can't hide it anymore.
I can't tell you what to do but I know what I would have to do if that was my boy Mick.

Yunnan baiyao will help with the bleeding. Aminophylline will help with breathing. Pet-tinic for anemia. Though all that may be a moot point by now.

Sorry to be blunt, but....With the panting, pain, unable to sleep etc you do not have much time left. I'm afraid Gino's time is very, very near. I think you know in your heart what needs to be done. You do not want to have a dog crash on you in the middle of the night, it's not pretty so I've heard.

I've been there with my boy Tucker and his nasal cancer, the bleeding, etc. I can honestly say he had a quality of life till the end. Waiting for him to pass in his sleep was not an option to me. That boy, bless his heart, walked right in the vets office that morning, even looking for cookies from the vet techs. I miss him dearly.

I was his best advocate and have no regrets. He is at peace.

I am so very sorry for GINO AND YOU. You said your vet thinks GINO is in pain and he is having trouble breathing. I would take him to the vet and stay with him while they euthanize him-I would not let him suffer.

I am sorry for what you and Gino are going through, but I agree, I could not let him suffer. It is very hard, but when a dog reaches the grand age of 15 and is in pain, with little hope of returning to good health, I believe the greatest final service we can do for a beloved companion is to put him gently to sleep so he suffers no more pain.
