Sadness over my boy

6 Comments

Our old boy is not good. After the first round of blood work and antibiotics he stopped eating his food altogether so I have been making him anything that he will eat which hasnt been much. I took him back to the vet on Monday for follow-up blood work and since he wasn’t doing any better she decided to do x-rays. She found a mass in his stomach and the follow up blood work showed no progress and a little decline.

Off to the Internal Medicine Specialist we go this morning. They did an ultrasound and found multiple tumors in his stomach, liver and spleen. They suspect a white cell cancer like lymphoma. Dogs with this type of cancer who go through chemo have a 10-15% chance of living a year longer and with how advanced my boy’s cancer is she gave him a much lower percentage. They said that there are meds we can give him which can make him comfortable for the next couple weeks until the cancer takes over. Right now he does not appear to be in any pain so once he does we will have to make that beyond difficult call but for now, we will let him eat whatever he wants and spoil him rotten.

  1. I am so so very sorry to hear this. You’re both in my thoughts.

  2. Oh how heartbreaking! I am so sorry! Our dogs are truly a part of our family so I understand how sad it is when one of them is sick. I hope your pup enjoys the yumminess and spoiling and is comfortable. My thoughts are with you all.

  3. I’m so sorry! I hope you can make the most out of his last days. I’m sure he would love nothing more than to be with you.
