I took Ginger to the vet a few weeks ago for a urinary infection. While examining her they discovered a rather large tumor on her rectum which was probably causing her a lot of pain. The vet told me there was only a 25% chance it was malignant so I decided to have the surgery done even though she is almost 13. Today I found out that it is benign so I made the right decision. She is feeling great and is back to being the happy active puppy she has always been. I've spent almost 2,000 in vet bills in the last 2 weeks but it's easy to see why it was worth it when you look at that precious face.
