Reader Question on Canine Osteocarcinoma and Falling Over
Would a CT scan be able to give a definitive answer as to whether or not a mass is benign or malignant? My Vet took a X-ray of my dog and said that it was pretty clear to be cancer however a bony tumor cannot be ruled out. She had a biopsy back in July and it was non-cancer, more of scar tissue buildup,
It's been 3 months and my dog has been experiencing dizzy spells, but ONLY when she shakes her head. We did confirm an ear infection and she is on meds. This doesn't happen any other time but when she shakes her head; tilts to one side, sometimes she falls over and eyes move around. It only last about 6-10 seconds then she is back to normal.
What I do not know is if this new symptom is from the tumor or from the ear infection.
