Well I got the results today. This is what the two vet pathologists and the vet surgeon said. Congo, grade II mast cell cancer, all surgically excised with wide margins. Sassy, aggressive grade III mast cell cancer (how the F can this be, she has only had a noticable tumor for about 2 months?). Prognosis/Grade-3 MCT or metastasis: Only 15% of dogs with Grade 3 MCT will be alive 7 months after surgery, and only 6% will be alive after 2 years. Once mast cell cancer has metastasized, dogs tend to die within 6 months as the symptoms of systemic illness (e.g., gastric ulcers) can no longer be managed and the animal loses its quality of life. Further, for Sassy: Tumors that are ulcerated may result in a poor prognosis. Tumors that are large have a poor prognosis. Tumors that have shown recent rapid growth have a poor prognosis Chemo is not advised for either one. As long as they seem happy and I don't notice anything new I'm gonna leave them alone for now. No more surgeries. When there is any change I'll put them down. They probably have some happy times yet when they can go to the farm and run around which is there all time favorite thing to do. They love walks too and we can do some of that too. Do me good exercise to help them terrorize the neighborhood. Is it 2009 yet? I'm ready for a new year.
