    My last Basset, of my own bloodline, I lost to an oral tumour which was a malignant melanoma! It was discovered, a very tiny tumour right at the back of his mouth, during a routine dental! My vet removed it and did it without involving the jaw, which is often the case! It hadnt spread that far! However, sadly he didnt get it all and it started growing again! As far as Im aware, it is a particularly fast growing cancer although we put my boy onto some homoeopathic treatment! Im not a particular fan, but anything to delay the inevitable, and if nothing else it was given to help boost his immune system! We have a vet at our practice who specialises in alternative medicine! He had 6 months of normal life before the original tumour started growing again, but more alarming was another one appeared forward in his jaw, from the original one! This was the one that got him, some 1 year on from when the original tumour was discovered!Im so sorry for you because if nothing else, it makes anybody (vets included) feel so helpless! With any luck you could well have many months yet – they are all different in their ability to ward off the inevitable! We had one with lymphoma who had 6 months of really good quality life, no medication needed and had I not known (which to some extent I regretted!) Id have said he was fit and healthy, before he suddenly crashed! His system shut down in 24 hours! Enjoy every day with her while you can! Cancers are all too common in dogs these days it seems!ps Go easy on how much research you do over the Internet! As my vet once said, often what you see on there will make you more worried, if anything! A little learning sometimes is definitely a bad thing! Ask your vet if you have any ongoing concerns – he knows your individual dog and her situation after all!
