Question from Janette Byrd

Our Calico Cat Callie has recently been diagnosed with a breast tumor. Since she is a stray we have no idea how old she is. She has had a little of kittens since we have had her and she has been spayed. (no more kittens) He told us that unfortunately tumors in cats are usually malignant. We intend to have he tumor removed. Is that a wise move on our part.

Our Vet Says:

It is indicated to have it removed, if it has grown. If a tumor is changing in size then there is a risk that it may burst and cause infection so it is best to have it removed. However, if the tumour is not changing then it is better to leave it there (this is unusual). Your vet will be able to give the best advice on this as he/she has seen your cat.
My advice is to have the tumour removed because they are almost always malignant.

I bought advantage 2 for my dogs. I have 4 and three of them weigh about the same. The smaller one weighs about 25 lbs. I need to know why the advantage is not working on them and also if you could recommend a flea and tick medicine that will work. They stay inside more than out. My girls are itching up a storm and I feel bad for them. Please help us. BTW Sable was a few months younger in the picture. Thanks, D. Ford ...?
