Q. Vet says he feels a mass in dogs stomach, dog is only eating soft foods like chicken and rice, wont eat hard dog foods, not going to toilet
A. An abdominal xray or ultrasound should be done to determine where the mass is located, its size and involvement with other organs. Chest xrays should also be performed to check for other masses. Treatment options or further diagnostics can be decided afterwards. If that is not possible, an exploratory surgery should be done to visualize the mass and resect it if possible. It should be submitted for pathology upon resection to determine if it malignant or benign.
