Doberman Gets Second Chance After Giant Tumor Removed
When Lexie arrived at the Arizona Humane Society, her prospects seemed bleak. She was having severe difficulty using the bathroom, and our veterinarians discovered that she had a mass the size of a basketball in her abdomen. After testing and observation, however, our medical team determined that Lexie’s tumor was operable and the sweet, 8-year-old Doberman could be saved. It wasn’t long before Lexie was in surgery in our Second Chance Animal Hospital™, where our experienced vets carefully removed the large tumor and gave Lexie a second chance at life. After several days of recovery, Lexie went up for adoption and quickly found a loving home.
