Q. My female dog has tumors on breast and has an acl tore took her to the vet but has made no improvents n doesnt want eat or still dosnt want to walk
DR. ANDREA M. BRODIE, DVM
A. Mammary tumors should be surgically removed. An ACL tear is usually also a surgical repair. If you have opted to not have the surgeries, then palliative care is the choice, ie NSAIDs against inflammation and pain, and pain medication. Sometimes these pain medications or pain alone can cause the dog not to eat. You need to check back with your veterinarian and discuss pain medication for your dog.
