I have joined this forum for some friendly cat owners advise. Ponch is 14 and have had him since a kitten. He's my best friend. Devastating news today as I have found out he has a spindlecell sarcoma in his paw. The vet has said it could be reomoved but the likelyhood is it will grow back. The second option is amputation, Poncho has the onset of arthritus un his rear end and has a cat 4 heart murmour.. My dog has 3 legs believe it or not after having the same problem in his rear lega dn is doing great.. but I am concerned with Poncho and his other problems that amputation is not the right thing.. The vet has said I could leave the growth and let it runs it's course and when Poncho starts to suffer can bring him in to be put to sleep. Any advise or anyone been through this before please ..
