This isn't just me blowing my extra money on a little critter. :/ She is my pet, and my friend. I took her into my care, and that makes her my first priority no matter what in terms of finances.

Anyway, ARGH so frustrated! I slept through the morning cause I was up late and missed the call from the doctor. Called back but she was in surgery. X___X So now I've just got my phone with me, waiting for the call back. I hope she's just doing a neuter and it'll come soon!



UPDATE: Well, just got the call. It's malignant, a mammary tumor. I was really hoping for anything else, but this is just the way it is. Thanks a ton for your help and advice, everyone. I'll keep you posted on how she does from here on out.

Just for safety, does anyone know what specifically I can expect from a mammary tumor?

I'm so sorry.

With Twix and Arsinoe, their mammary tumors grew pretty quickly. Twix: in a little over a month after developing the tumor she started really pulling on it, ripping it open, so I knew it was really bothering her and time to take her back into the vet. Arsinoe: passed on just under a month after the first one popped up. Somewhere midway through two more tumors popped up further down on her belly. That's just how it went with my two girls though. I know I've seen others have said their mice did well for much longer. Hugs.

I apologize if this is repetitive to something already posted in this forum, but I guess putting it in here fresh can't hurt. In case you want some nuts-and-bolts anatomy and physiology, I'll try to link up a page from the Rat Health Guide (http://ratguide.com/health/) that deals specifically with this health issue, and includes several case studies and pre- and post-operative photos:

http://ratguide.com/health/neoplasia/mammary_tumor.php

Mice are not exactly the same as rats, and rats are not exactly the same as mice, but this concise and informative "guide" should be helpful to feeling more knowledgeable about little Shelly's current situation.
