Rectal Cancer

Sadly my 6yr old English Setter has been diognosed with rectal casinoma, he has had a CT scan which shows it has not spread anywhere else but the tumor is 12cm so they cannot operate.
Apart from straining, you would think nothing was wrong, at the moment no other outward signs.
The vet has given him Previcox as it is said in some dogs it slows down the tumor, also to give him lactolose twice a day. It's been suggested a high fibre diet, to bulk up his stools but still keep them soft and easy to pass.
Can you suggest anything else I could do to help him, eg. anything to try and slow down the growth.

I feel really sad hearing about your little pet. But the best care which you can provide him s according to the doctor only as we are not sure of the things that could be harmful for him. Hoping for the good that he may recover very fast..

In dogs the most common sites for intestinal tumours are the colon and the rectum. A surgical plan is based on the type of tumour that your dogs has and the age factor. Most tumors, being the polypoid form can be removed from within the rectum without any external incisions. Removal of a cobblestone adenocarcinoma frequently can be performed by prolapsing the affected bowel through the anus, thus not requiring an external incision.
