    my dog can't hold her urin for more than 2 hours is this a sign of cancer

    went to vet and she said she has a type of tumor on her skin, she is getting worse and when i look at her she has that sad face in her eyes, she is a boxer 10 1/2 years old

    It may not be cancer.  There are many other things it could be such as benign tumours, urinary tract infection, or some other treatable problem.  It could even be just one of those things that aging animals get.

    Take her to the vet again and discuss the issue - you owe it to your dog and yourself.

    I hope all works out with you and your companion.

    Hello, I am so sad to hear that.  I have a boxer as well, and they do tend to get problems as they age of course.  Taking her to the vet is all u can do and follow the best direction of what the Vet tells you to do. 
    Hopefully she is not in pain or gets much worse.  Maybe there is some alternative medicine or treatment or something that you could try?

    I hope she gets better, it is so sad when our beloved pets get older and get bad health.  I hope to hear some good news from you? 
    Best wishes, Kandice
