Has anyone had to have their dogs tail amputated? If so has the dog had difficulties adjusting to it?
I just got home from the vet. I took Mojo in on Monday to have a small lump under her tail checked out (the Vet originally thought earlier this year that it was just another sebaceous gland cyst)
It had gotten bigger and looks pretty raw.
So the vet took a biopsy and sent it off to get pathology results. Turns out they found spindle cells which apparently often get linked to nerve cell cancer.
So tomorrow she's going to take the lump off and try to get clean margins (there's not much to work with on a tail sadly) she said she will have to leave it as an open wound as it's not possible to stitch closed.
The lump will be sent off to check that she managed to remove everything - if she hasn't Mojo will have to have her tail amputated
Please keep your fingers crossed that she mages to get it all off!
