The Mean Girls star, dressed rather casual in a light blue sweat and her hair thrown up said: “The doctor found a little tumor in his anal sack because he did a rectal exam and they took it out in surgery and we’ve been doing chemo. We’ve been lucky to be able to afford it.”

She claims that Finn has been a model patient, that there have been "no ill effects," and that he appears to be uninterested about the procedures, but Amanda has been spoiling him with tasty treats.

To her 5.5 million followers, she also emphasizes the importance of getting your dog examined when you visit the vet in the video.
