I'm looking for comments about adenocarcinoma of the thyroid. About 2 months ago my brother took in an 8.5 yo golden retriever when the previous owner passed away. The dog is a very sweet boy and transitioned nicely to my brother's home. The vet found a 3 cm lump on his larynx and did a fine needle aspirate and diagnosed adenocarcinoma of the thyroid. x-rays showed lungs are clear. The oncologist is recommending surgery. The dog is not showing any symptoms. BEAM appears fine though not knowing his history there is nothing to compare it to. I have encouraged him to begin feeding a fresh food diet. He has a consult appointment with the surgeon. I am trying to help him consider all options and would like your input.
