My dog is 15 and is in good health with a few issues... a large growth in his mouth and one on his leg. Due to his age they want to do chemotherapy and not surgery as they don't think he can handle the drugs.
The recovery would be harsh...they might have to remove part of his jaw and he might be on a feeding tube for a few days... if left alone the growth could block his throat.
The one on his leg could go septic and have to heal on it's own if the chemo makes it fall off. Or we can do the invasive surgery and possibly have it go septic and leave him with a limp.
There is nothing to say that they won't grow back other.
Both prices are the same $6,000. Paid in full beforehand of course.
This may sound harsh but...
My questions are: What is the better way to do this? Surgery or chemo? if my dog dies on the table during surgery...do I have to pay? Do they give me a free cremation? What is the point of no return with a pet?
This is the first one I've had that has health problems. The others all died in their sleep of old age....
