I am the owner of an 8 year old beagle. Over the last 6 weeks I noticed she began losing a lot of weight, had discharge, had some bloody discharge, lost her appetite, and will squat multiple times to releave herself outside. We took her to the vet where they tried 2 different types of antibiotics hoping it would fight off a Urinary Tract Infection. After neither one worked, a urine culture was taken and it did not show any signs of an infection. We then took her to get an ultra sound of her lower abdomen where they think they found some inflamed lymph nodes around her bladder. The vet now thinks she could have lymphoma but is not really sure at all. The next step is to get a chest X-ray to see if there is any swelling up there and to take a blood test. My question is, based on this information, what could be my dog’s diagnosis and what else can we do to conclude on one? We are really hoping it is not cancer…she seems too young to show these extreme signs for cancer over a short 6 week span. Please help
