Hello..I have a female beagle who is about 11 yrs old now. Almost 2 years ago she developed a lump on her breast. That same lump is now pretty big and it hangs fom her stomach. I did take her to the vet last year and they dont think its cancerous otherwise she would be dead by now. I wanted it removed but they wanted between 3-4 thousand dollars which right now I cannot afford being a single income with two small kids I have to feed. She is in no physical pain and is very active and eats well (too well sometimes). The lump however is getting pretty big and that she is probaly not comfortable carrying that mass, and I am sure that it gets in the way when she lies down or jump. She is not fixed (which is my fault for not etting it done earlier, which may have prevented the tumor). Not sure what to do now, she had been our dog since she was 7 weeks old. These are though economic times and I am in danger of getting laid off soon. We still dont have the money to get her tumor taken out.
