Hello, My boston terrier was diagnosed with a 6cm liver mass. I took him in for something else minor and they did blood work. They discovered some elevated liver enzymes and did an ultrasound. I was referred out for a more in depth ultrasound which I had done. He said the mass is on left side of liver and the rest of liver looks normal. The next step would be catscan to see if removable, a tru cut liver biopsy to figure out what it is, and then if removable- surgery. I am feeling so confused about what to do next. I want what is best for my dog. I don't mind spending the money. I would do anything for him. Has anyone had any experiences with liver masses, catscans and tru cut liver biopsies with their dog? My dog is a rescue. He just turned 13 but seemed so young and vibrant up until all of this. Any experiences you've had or knowledge you can offer ks greatly appreciated. I asked about a needle aspirate biopsy but he said they often don't get enough to test with this method. Thanks again so much. I'm really confused about this.
