Hello there, my handsome dog Mr. Pickles was recently taken to the vet due to a bloody mass on his rectum. As a dog mom it got me very worried and I assumed the worse. At first I thought it could probably be an infected anal glad since it mostly appears while he’s passing a bowel movement or being active and playful. What I thought could be an "infected anal glad" came out to be a growing mass. According to his doctor the growth has to be surgically removed as soon as possible. Once removed the mass will be biopsied and sent out to the lab to determine if it’s benign or cancerous. This is beyond the worst thing a loving and caring dog parent can go through. The veterinarian informed me that intact male dogs can develop prostate cancer or cancerous growths when they reach senior age. I adore Mr. Pickles with all my heart. Anyone who has met him knows he's the most sweetest good boy out there. The sooner this procedure is done to Mr. Pickles the better the chances from this spreading through his body. Any donations will help. And I truly thank all of you for taking the time to read and help me and my family.
