Labrador with Terrier-Sized Tumor

Surgeons at Boston's Angell Animal Medical Center removed a 21-pound tumor from a 13-year-old Labrador retriever, the largest tumor veterinarians there had ever seen. A picture of tumor is show, above. The dog has been doing well post-surgery. The complete story is here.

Kudos to doing a successful surgery on an older dog, but why in the world did they let the tumor grow that large?

Or did they just think the dog would die before they would consider surgery to remove it?

How long did the owners let this continue before deciding to act?
