It might be hard to put down your family pet and best friend, but in the best interests of the dog, putting him down is not only cost efficient, but the most humane.

The most common treatments for cancer are surgical removal, radiation and tumor-killing drugs. Type of method depends on the type of tumor, whether it has or is likely to metastasize, and how far it has progressed. But it also depends on the age of the dog, the type of cancer, severity of the cancer, and progression of the cancer.

The internal tumor may be growing on something that may be impossible to remove without causing major permanant dammage
