lump on anna my coonhound?

Postby pat » Sat May 06, 2017 11:47 am

Anna has a weird lump on her throat. I called the vet, but, can't get an appointment till May 15 icon-sad
I know some dogs get fatty lumps as they get older. but, not sure if that is what it is. I kind of don't think so,
cause she seems to have a hard time breathing, but not all the time.
it sounds like she is snoring real loud, but, also sounds like she might have a hard time breathing.
also, she sounds like she has fluid build up. possibly her lungs :shrug:

anna is 9 years old. honestly, I am happy, but surprised she lived this long so far. some of the hounds I got from the same breeder
died at a young age. one was 5, the other 8 icon-sad
the ones I didn't get from this breeder lived to 13

I took a picture, I know if is probably impossible to tell what it could be. but, maybe someone can give me some ideas from my description :shrug:

I would almost say fatty lump, but, I don't think that is what it is. maybe a tumor?

It's almost surely a thyroid tumor. Unfortunately that is usually caner. Maybe your vet would be willing to give some prednisone to help make her comfortable till he can see her, especially if you show him the photo.

thank you for info, never thought of calling the vet, however, I was clueless as to what the lump is.
I probably will have to wait till Monday icon-sad

I can't foresee any type of surgery?

Some can be operated on but most can't because it cant be removed without also removing other important tissues.

Pat, please don't get yourself all upset before you definitively know what it is. She very well may have run a thorn or a splinter in there, and it's an abscess. Let us know what you find out at the vet. When is your appointment?

the lump is pretty big. her appointment is May 15.
she has breathing problems, but not all the time.
she jumped the fence a few days ago :roll: so she must not be that sick.

the vet said Anna has Lymphoma cancer :cry: she might live for another 2 months.

finally got the prednisone for her. (twice a day). she might live a little longer with the prednisone.
she might die on her own, or if she gets really bad, I will have to have her put down. :cry:

the vet said the cancer has spread and pointed out a few other lumps from the cancer. :cry:

That is so sad. I'm so sorry, Pat. Really thought it was something benign. I hope her remaining days are good, and when the time comes, that she goes gently and quietly with little or no pain. <hugs>

I'm sorry. Unfortunately never really know what to expect with cancer. I think a lot of what happens depends on where it spreads too.
