Q. If YOU had a dog with hemangio sarcoma,would you operate on it,to keep it alive in a prognosis to be no more than 4 months? Beyond normal at $4500 +
A. If you're asking my opinion, I would not perform surgery on my dog if it will only extend his life for 4 months. Tumor surgery can be complex and healing can take days to weeks. There can also be complications, blood loss, infection, etc. I would not take that risk for my dog to live only four months longer. I'd rather keep him comfortable in his last days and when his condition starts to deteriorate, I would have him euthanized by my family veterinarian. I hope my answer was helpful to you. I'm sorry you need to make this decision.
