Hello: I joined this forum to see if anyone else's furbaby is going through (or has gone through) mast cell cancer treatment, specifically Palladia? My 8 year old Maltese, Wally, suddenly developed a lump in his perianal area, and was diagnosed with a mast cell tumor about a month ago. It was decided surgery couldn't be done because the margins would be no where close to clean and it would grow right back within a few weeks or months. Also, would be issues with healing from the surgery due to histamine released from the tumor. We are currently going through chemo with Palladia, which he is handling well. Now, the onco. vet has added Cytoxan to this. He will also be required to take Lasix to help control a serious side effect that could happen from the Cytoxan. Does anyone have any insight or experiences they could share? He is eating, happy, and acting almost the same as before. Happy I found this site! Marcie
