This morning, my grey Speed Racer (racing name Tipp Josiah) was diagnosed with lymphoma. The vet called it high grade and gave me two options. Option one: We can make him comfortable for the next couple of months with prednisone. He may survive one or two months. Option two: We can treat aggressively with chemotherapy. She is referring me to an oncology specialist and let me know to expect ultrasounds, x-rays, and biopsies. Can you tell me your experience with these two options? My dog is 9 years old. I don't want to traumatize him if I'm only buying a few extra low-quality-of-life months with him. I don't want to be selfish. But if chemo will make him feel a lot better and gives him a significantly better quality of life, I am happy to spend the money. Thank you for your help.
Guest posted a topic in Health and Medical discussionHi Everyone! I used to be a member of this board quite a while ago, but haven't posted in ages. I had trouble logging in so ended up making a new account. Here's my handsome fellow: My greyhound Tristan is 9 years and 4 months old, and about a week and a half ago he started limping on his front right leg. He's had a shoulder injury before so I thought it was just that, but since he hadn't healed up we took him to the vet. Of course I'm really scared for osteo. The vet took x-rays and has sent them to a radiologist for diagnosis, but we won't hear back until tomorrow. I was wondering if anyone here has had experience looking at x-rays? I thought I'd post them here just in case. If anyone has any guesses, I'd love to hear. Otherwise I'll update this page when we hear back tomorrow. I'll try to attach the images, but you can also see them here: https://picasaweb.go...Mb63ar9yKn9iAE#
