Has anyone here had a dog that had lung cancer?

I’m so sorry that you are going through this. I had a dog with lung cancer. Since the dog was 12, we decided not to do the surgery and simply keep her comfortable and enjoy the time we had left with her. Lung cancer in dogs acts the same way it does in humans. While I don’t want to depress you, it is unlikely that surgery will get rid of it all. If there is a veterinary college near you, sometimes they can also do chemotherapy on dogs. It is usually free at a veterinary college. Chemo has the same side effects on dogs as it does in humans. Nausea and hair loss. Surgery may give her some extra time and quality of life. Enjoy the time you have with her. You will know what to do when the time comes. I’m so sorry.
