A grade 1 is the least "serious" type of this tumor. Complete resection with clean margins (the report should say whether this was done or not) should be curative.

Great decision! I would definitely get a 2nd opinion and find a vet. that is caring! Good luck. We have one that is very caring and concerned and we really appreciate it.

Thanks for the prompt feedback. I talked to the vet who said these type of tumors, caught at grade 1, generally have a good outcome. He evidentally took a fair amount of surrounding tissue when he excised the tumor. However, my husband and I are going to take her to a specialist a friend suggested; we need a second opinion and some reassurance.

Thank you both.

Yep, take your copy of the lab report to a new vet promptly!

I'm so sorry your chi has this problem. Please go with your instincts and find a vet who cares. If I had done that our little Chihuahua may have still been with us.

Does anybody have any experience with this type of tumor? My 9 year old chi's pathology report just came back with this diagnosis. She had an odd lump on her leg removed a month ago, just before we left town. The vet didn't seem concerned but suggested we pay for a laboratory exam. When we returned from a vacation, I still didn't have the lab report so I called the vet's office and they sent a copy. I have a call into the vet, but haven't talked to him yet. Frankly, I'm not too impressed with this vet if his office couldn't even send the report, especially since this is a malignant tumor.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.
