Ther was no bigger problems in the post-op, except one of her stiches broke and the wound couldn’t heal in that part. A few week ago she started to have trouble moving, it seemed as if she is in pain in the region of the scar. Now she is moving very little, my vet diagnosed her with metastasis, he wasn’t sure at first dough he though it is just the swelling from the scar. She bearly moves now and there is a sweling around the scar.
I feel terribly guilty. Is there anything I can do to help her, is there anything more that can be done to save her. I would be most greatfull for any kind of help or advice.
Thank you in advance.
I am sorry to hear your dog has cancer. I guess you should try to keep your dog pain free as much as possible and made sure she does not get an infection on her wound. You could try seeing another vet for a second opinion .
