He said: “I’ve got to say we don’t want to diagnose things without seeing them, but I don’t like what I see there. That doesn’t look nice and cancer tends to look exactly as you think it would look.
“I would be concerned that that is something significant in the fact that it’s grown quickly in a short space of time.”
Breaking the news that Alison’s beloved dog might not have much longer to live, he acknowledged the dog’s incredible age, saying it was a credit to her.
He added: “I know Olly is 16 which is an incredible credit to you, he also has a heart murmur which is one of the reasons you’ve sat on your hands and not moved forward because of the chance that he might not make it through an anaesthetic.
“My heart goes out to you on this one. You need to focus on the fact you’ve given him 16 wonderful years and that you want to make sure his passing is kind and that he’s not in discomfort or pain and I know you wouldn’t want that for him.”
