I figured the pathology would be useful for future reference - if it is a basel cell cancer, then I'd know to get future 'warts' removed right away, but if it is benign, I could just monitor them for changes.Not high to me at all. If you wanted to reduce it, you could skip the pathology. Depends whether $100 is worth it for piece of mind.
It's for GA - I was surprised they couldn't do it with sedation and local, especially since Mitzi is the EASIEST dog in the world and the location on the back of the neck isn't a tricky one, but they said no.Is that for GA or sedation? If it's possible, see if they can skip the GA. it'll be easier on the old lady and cheaper for you. I had something very similar sounding removed from Max under sedation and a local with no issue. unfortunately I don't recall the price, but I'm sure it was less than $500!
You wouldn't happen to have any contacts on Vancouver Island that know of a vet who uses this, do you? I tried to find one a while ago when a friend asked about it, and didn't have any luck.Please seriously consider using neoplasene as an injectable into the wart. This treatment has worked wonders for warts and you can see it shrink up and go away. The dog would need to be kept on the neoplasene through their diet as you don't want the cancer to come back. It's certainly working for Sarah, as well as many other dogs.
Yes, please pm me his contact info. The mainland isn't viable for me. I doubt my vet will be amenable to it, but I can ask.Dr. Spencer can contact your vet and walk him through the treatment and how to use the neoplasene. I can send you his information, if you'd like. Otherwise, I do know of a vet on the mainland that would probably be very receptive to using it. After the initial treatment, I've just been keeping in contact with Dr. Spencer through phone calls and photos.
