Mast cell tumor
An_248996 posted:
Hi I am new to this. I have a 4 year old Jack Russell that was diagnosed with a grade 3 mast cell tumor on Aug 17th. The mast was on the tip of her muzzle right next to her nose. it had also affected the lymph node on the same side. we have done surgery and she has been on Kenivet and Predinzone since. The growth in her neck where the lymph node was removed is coming back. The first chemo we were going to use was Palladia, but she did not want to keep her on the Predinzone. We started to cut back on the Pred, and she stated to swell. So now with the new growth, i think i have to try the Palladia. Please help me. i don't know what to do.
