We are the dog's parents. Ella. The new recruit, Ella, was recently diagnosed with mast cell cancer. She was tested for ear tumors and lymph nodes. One of her lymph nodes had elevated mast cells, but we can't say for sure that it's metastasized. So far, it's probably just her ear. Puppy insurance does not cover this procedure and we have charged $2,500 for the vet. According to her oncologist at the Pet Emergency and Specialty Center, Ella's best chance of survival is to have most of her right ear removed. Please do what you can to help save our baby. Thank you.
