Hello & welcome, Kathie. I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

 

Oh Kathie, I am so sorry to hear about Brandy's possible tumor.

I agree that if she is well in herself, then you would not need to put her to sleep at this stage no matter what mass type it is.

 

In regards XXXXX XXXXX a second opinion at the RSPCA, you are smack dab in the middle of 2 RSPCA practices. So, you may be best to ring each and see which one covers your area.

 

First, there is the Harmsworth Memorial Animal Hospital (which is 6 miles from your post code). There contact details are #0300(NNN) NNN-NNNNand the address isXXXXX Holloway, Ldn, N7 7QD.

 

Otherwise, 5 miles from you is the Edmonton Clinic. Their contact details are #0300(NNN) NNN-NNNNand the address isXXXXX LONDON, N9 9AA.

 

Overall, a second opinion is a good next step here before assuming a poor prognosis for Brandy with this lump.

 

I hope this information is helpful.

If you need any additional information, do not hesitate to ask!

All the best,

Dr. B.
