Rusty started panting more than usual this afternoon. I knew something was wrong

so I took him to the vets. They took x rays and found a large mass in his stomach.

The doc. said it didn't look good, and he said it could rupture and there's a chance I could lose him tonite.

:crying My heart is broken into a million pieces. :cry1

He goes for an altra sound tomorrow at 4:00 pm. I really don't know why, there's only

a slim chance that something can be done for him. I'm sorry, I gotta go, I can't see to good

right now, and I keep misspelling stupid words. :sbox I love my big guy so much.


I don't know Rusty's whole story of why you say there is a slim chance something can be done for him.


My PJ (not a greyhound) started acting quiet one evening and her gums were white. By the time we got to the ER vet she was more herself. They did x-rays and found a large mass in her stomach as well. I remember the vet saying that since it was that large, it probably wasn't cancer. They didn't want to operate there in case it burst. Like you I was also devastated and petrified! In the middle of the night I drove 120 miles to take her to U of MO at Columbia vet school. I think it took me 1 hour to drive there.They did surgery the next afternoon and it ended up being an 11 pound hematoma (I think that's what they called it....this was back in 1998.) She recovered completely.


Praying that Rusty's ultrasound goes well and it's something that can be fixed. Rusty is beyond adorable! :kiss2
