We took our 10 year old dog in for her first visit with Dr. G about a month ago and decided to get her teeth cleaned as well. Thank God we did, and thank God Dr. G was thorough enough in looking at her mouth while she was under that he caught a melanoma in her mouth.
After biopsy and further tests it looks like we caught it early - his referral to an oncologist at Blue Pearl was terrific and Dr. G is going to perform the follow-up surgery to clean out the spot - with minimal discomfort for my dog.
I am so lucky he caught this. He has a tiny storefront on 1st Avenue, I know it doesn't look like much, but there is a deep well of knowledge there and he is a terrific vet. Highly recommend!
