Q. My dog has been given a month due to stage 3 cancer. There are tumors on feet and ears, what will happen at the end?

Answered By

A. I am sorry to hear your pet is so unwell, it is important to spend as much quality time with her and make sure she has an enjoyable and comfortable time with you. Especially when her feet are affected it is possible she will find it difficult to get around early in the progression of this problem and it is possible you may be faced with having to arrange euthanasia for her to relieve her from pain. Ask your local vets and humane societies, they may have provisions for a vet to call to the house if that is what you would prefer. Find below a worksheet to help you and her her other care givers to assess where she is currently and at what stages you need to reassess
