    See the surgeon, good luck. Sorry to hear about the issue. Getting him neutered will help with the prostate, and will be still be the same dog. Pretty small mass, could be removed and still have good bladder function, DEPENDING on where it is on the bladder.

    My 11-yr old male started straining when he pooed. Figured it was an enlarged prostate. Ultrasound to confirm and they found a mass on his bladder at the same time. At first I was told it was inoperable. Then my doc wanted me to see the oncologist at the teaching hospital. They wanted to neuter him, remove the bladder mass and start chemo. Told me it might increase his life by 6 mo.

    I couldn’t carve him up and have him spend his last days recovering from abdominal surgery. We put him on medication to reduce his prostate and meloxicam for inflammation/pain. A few weeks later he started coughing—lungs full of tumors. We let him go.

    Sorry for the story with the bad outcome but I thought you would want to know.
