Dog Cancer Scare

Overnight Lily got sick.  She reacts to her Cancer test results:

We took her in and they found a tumor on her spleen. She was bleeding internally, and so anemic her breathing was affected she needed a blood transfusion or she would be dead in hours.

Once they stabilized her they told us it was Hermangiosarcoma, and more than half of Golden Retrievers die from it. It comes on fast and she only had days to live if we didn’t do surgery.

Even if we did she’d still only have months. There was only a 10% chance that it was the benign kind and they said in 20 years it’s never happened. We had to make a choice fast.

We didn’t want to give up. We emptied our savings account and did the surgery. They removed a 6 pound tumor!

She immediately seemed better. But they said it would only be temporary. That in a few months she would bleed out. I kept saying, “but what if it is benign?” They were clear that it has never happened in their whole career and we should be prepared and just enjoy our time with her.

One week later we got the results. This was the moment I told her.

Mahalo to Feather and Fur Animal Hospital for taking care of her. The vet tech actually used her own dogs blood to give Lily an emergency blood transfusion! UPDATE:
We now give our dogs the Turkey Tail mushroom. It has had major success against this kind of cancer. If you have a golden retriever or a German Sheppard they are at HIGH RISK. Look into this. Don’t lose your baby to this asshole cancer!

My take: People, your dogs do Not Understand you! They are simply responding to the tone and attack of your voice! But, who does not like good news?
