Info on bladder cancer

I found a very informative document on bladder cancer in dogs. The frustrating part is not knowing if it is bladder cancer. The only way to get a definite diagnosis is with a tissue biopsy, which is done through surgery, cystoscopy or even a urinary catheter, which all cost a lot of money. But according to this doc, a proper diagnosis is "important because the treatment and prognosis depend entirely on exactly what is wrong with the bladder. "
