Mass Vet has given me time and hope with my beloved girl.

Written by Janet | Peabody, MA Hospital: Massachusetts Veterinary Referral Hospital

Another day in the life of my 12.5 yr old golden retriever. Just yesterday,I scheduled a consult with Dr Pastor to discuss a Mast Cell tumor on her back left leg. As usual, nothing is simple with my girl and this is her third round of cancer. It is different every time to keep life interesting.

After an honest discussion, I decided to opt for surgery (a day later) even though I knew she would not be able to get clean margins. Abby is coming home today to be with her sister Lilly and the rest of the family. We dodged another bullet and what lies ahead, no one knows. What I can honestly say is that Mass Vet has given me time and hope with my beloved girl.

Dr. Pastor is not only an exceptional surgeon but a wonderful, honest and kind-hearted person. I will always be grateful for whatever time I have left and hope that everyone will utilize this facility and be grateful for the caring staff that provides hope for all of us animal lovers. Thanks for the gift of another day. You’re the best.
