Canine Cancer: Nasal Adenocarcinoma
Our 15 year old lady was diagnosed in March with nasal adenocarcinoma. Initially, for the first few months, it was extremely difficult to deal with the mere idea that our dog, our "kid" and best pal, had the big "C". We opted against chemo, radiation or surgery, mainly for the fact that the location of the tumor was way in back of her sinus' and would be near impossible to remove in any way. So, instead we have switched her over to a cancer-fighting diet and keep her on antibiotics + pain killers (anti inflammatory). So far, so good, but we always keep our fingers crossed that she will go to rainbow bridge on her own and not because of the cancer.
I'm just curious, have any of you had pets with nasal adenocarcinoma? What did you do, or wish you did, or found that helped you and your dog?
