I hope everyone will pardon me for posting here about my dog, but I was hoping you all could send good thoughts Bubbas' way (he is an honorary cat in my house). He was just diagnosed with advanced stage cancer, found all over his lungs and a large mass on his heart, plus a smaller nodule on his spleen. The prognosis is bad, a few months at the most is what his vets are thinking.

He just got sick on Wednesday, I took him in Thursday morning. Obviously it's been there for a long time but as recently as Tuesday he was running around playing keep away with his dolly (stuffed rabbit) as my boyfriend and I chased him around. I'm not taking this well, he's not a young dog but I was counting on a few more years with my guy.

Oh, I'm sorry. ;-( I take it that it's too advanced/widely spread to consider chemotherapy?

I'm so sorry, Karen.

I'm terribly sorry, Karen. I know it's never long enough no matter how long we get to keep them. I hope the time you have left is longer than you think and that it will be a wonderful time for all of you. It's very sad.

He's been started on a drug call Piroxicam, which is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory that was found to have a chemo-like effect on some kinds of tumors. They don't know why. We get a biopsy report on Monday so my vet and I will be able to go over our options more. It's not looking good - it's rather advanced. Thanks, Cathy.

Thanks Mary. Hope you and yours are doing okay. Emotion: smile

Thank you Candace. Your fellow vegetarian just bought some weird-ass beaver wet food because many fussy cats and dogs have seemed to like it. Bubbas hasn't been eating, though he chowed down on one of those Natural Balance food rolls they have. It smells kind of like salami or something... Emotion: smile

I didn't get your original post (damn news server!) but I'm hoping for the best for him, too! Kitty sends headbutts his way (she doesn't really like dogs, but she tolerates them well and is feeling terribly sad over his condition OK, she didn't say that, and she's actually curled up sleeping, but I'm sure she's dreaming good thoughts!).
