My 10 year old cat was diagnosed with mammary cancer. Her tumors are too large to go through surgery. I recently, had dog pass from cancer. I chose to treat with prednisone. Can I do the same for my cat?

I age never seem a case that was too big for surgery. I’m not saying it isn’t possible. I just haven’t seen it. Ask for a second opinion or see a surgeon. I doubt this will be responsive to pred. Surgery is the best option. In my opinion. Good luck. Ps. Also have her spayed if she isn’t already

This is a discussion t9 have with your vet. I’m sorry… I know you probably want a more direct answer. Your vet knows your cat and your situation. They are the best person to sit down with and have this conversation. They can prescribe a routine suited for your cat including treatment and pain management. Best of luck to you.
