I adopted Luna in July of 2016 and shortly after she had a mass in her mouth. I took her in to get it checked out and eventually had it removed. The vet sent it off for a biopsy and I was told it wasn’t cancerous and it was called an Epulis that isn’t likely to come back. 2 months after her surgery, it was back. I took her to a different vet and they told me it’s not cancerous and the only way to get rid of it is to remove her canine tooth. 4 years later and 5 vets telling me the same thing...I find a vet that tells me the truth.
What the biopsy report actually said was that it could become cancerous it just wasn’t at the time.
In September 2020, I finally found a vet that gave me an honest answer. He removed her mass again and the biopsy came back as cancer and it made its way into her jaw bone. Luckily it hasn’t spread to the other side but the surgery to get her jaw removed is quite expensive. We are incredibly lucky the cancer hasn’t spread yet but the longer we wait for the surgery, the more at risk Luna is of it spreading
Any donation big or small means the world to me. The thought of me having to wait to get the funds is heartbreaking as her cancer could spread during this time.
Even if you can’t donate if you don’t mind
