Sylvia South Lake Tahoe, CA 3/11/2010 9:21:54 AM Where is this study being conducted in northern california? Would like to know as my 9 year old retriever has a growth in her nose, which is causing her to bleed from the nostril. I do not know if it is cancer, all the vet will tell me is that it is a growth and will spread eventually to the eye or the other nostril. As I sit here I can observe that she is very congested. the vet has given her a death sentence, because he has done everything he can. He currently has her on predisone and an antibiotic called doxycycline. I will gladly participate in this study if there is one in the northern california area.
