It's going to be 3 months that my dog had surgery. She had a malignant tumor removed. It's taken a while to heal and the wound has finally completely healed after some complications:( The area where she had surgery feels hard and it's kind of a lump now, is that normal? Could it be coming back? I don't like the care she received so I'm very hesitant to go back to that vet office.

I am so sorry that you are unhappy with the service and care that you received. You are definitely within your rights to find another vet office that you feel more comfortable with. If the area is warm to the touch or painful fir her in any way, I would call a vet. The lump, depending on the size, could just be scar tissue… but if you are worried, I would start at the vet office. If you’re going to a new vet, make sure you thoroughly explain all your dog’s medical history. Best of luck!??

See if they can let you pay part up front and the rest in installments. I would also call the local humane society, local spca, and other local animal… Read more »
