Thread: Poor Diagnosis

  1. #11

    Default

    We saw the oncologist yesterday.
    The location of the tumor did not allow for very much area to be removed. They took out as much as possible.
    Prognosis is not good. Can expect it to go to lymph nodes and then where-ever. Right now he is fine.
    Vet wrote a prescription to begin chemo. Don't plan to do that.
    Would really like to get in another hunting season. He LOVES goose hunting.

    thanks for the responses.

    Ray, I am so sorry to hear this! I lost my best Golden in January to cancer! She too loved hunting waterfowl or any other bird. -We were blessed as she survived two mammary tumors for over 5 years, but when she finally had to be put down, it was hard and we miss her every day.

    Enjoy your time, dogs are blessed in that they do not know they are sick. They can tollerate pain and usually when they start showing pain, it is time! But up until then they are usually happy, happy, every day.

    God Bless you and you family, all us dog lovers, hope some day we will see these wonderful animals again! Maybe only in our dreams and thoughts which can never be taken away from us...

    You did the best you could with surgery and time will tell. I had a friend that had an excision done on a 2 yo and she was told she subsequently needed to have part of his jaw removed and she refused. He is 13 and still fine having some old age problems now. Good luck.

    I'm sorry you got such bad news, it sounds a lot like what we faced with my dog. Feed him great food, do lots of fun things, and don't treat him like an invalid. Let his remaining time be joyful and full of love. If you get lucky and he ends up beating the odds, even better. Best of luck to you.

    So sorry for your loss. I lost the one in my avatar unexpectedly a little over a week ago. Still haven't gotten over it. Miss him every day.
