Golden Retriever Question

How serious is a tumor in GT hind leg?

My Golden Retriever was diagnosed with a tumor in her hind leg. Everyone says "this is very common in golden Retrievers". Is it serious?

Tumors are a concern for Golden Retrievers. If your dog was diagnosed then your vet will know if it is serious or not. Hopefully a biospy was completed to determine if it is benign or malignant. The type of tumor also is a big factor. It is important to watch it and make sure that it does not cause her discomfort from rubbing and such if it is benign. Sorry to hear about your Golden. I would suggest just having a good plan long term to monitor it with your vet.
