My sweet hen Bottom is a Red Star and is turning 4 years old this fall. She had surgery for an impacted crop back in April and hasn't quite recovered months later. Since then she's kind of gone down hill and so we took her to the vet again who found the probable cause, a golf ball sized tumor possibly in her reproductive system. He suggested we euthanize. I don't think she's in any pain and now that she's living in the house full time she has perked up considerably and seems almost back to her old self. However, I imagine it's only a matter of time. So my question is, does anyone else have experience with this sort of thing? She eats, she drinks, she walks around, she bocks at me to let her up on my lap to be petted, very normal stuff. How long could she have? What's the best way to treat her to prolong her life and increase her comfort? If the tumor is noncancerous does it still pose the same threat to her life? She's losing interest in her layer crumbles and mostly only eats the scrambled eggs made with Ensure the vet recommended to put some weight back on her. Will this make her condition worse by depriving her of proper nutrition? Any advice on how to make the end of her life the best possible would be greatly appreciated.
