We just went to the vet yesterday to have a couple of mammory lumps checked in our 7 year old Cocker(has not been spayed)...the vet was very vague in his answers with everything and I am looking for some guidance. He said that 50% of mammory lumps are benign and that we could have them removed and her spayed. My question is: Do you think that we should definitely have the lumps removed and her spayed? When I asked our vet this question he just talked around it and never gave us a clear answer. I would think that we should definitely take out the lumps but is it worth it to have her spayed at this age...would it help her at all?
Research shows that spaying your pet after being diagnosed with mammary cancer helps reduce the incidence of reoccurrence. vetcare
