I have a female pet dog (Labrador) of 8 years old. She had tumours in her 3-4 nipples for one and a half months. Her veterinarian doctor told us to go for a surgery. We did so. Now, after one week of the surgery I have noticed that her front right and rear legs are swollen up. Her chest is also having a soft bulging appearance. Her doctor said that she might have mammary cancer. But he hasn’t done any tests to get a confirmation. Can you tell me; are these symptoms really the symptoms of cancer?
She has normal diet and normally active. The doctor did a chest x-ray before surgery. There was nothing to worry about. The area of surgery is not swelled up. She is licking too much on the surgery portion.
