Cancer In Non-greyhound


Recommended Posts

My 14 year old non-greyhound has a cancerous growth in her ear that is scheduled to be surgically removed. It is not known if the cancer has metastasized. She is otherwise healthy, eating normally, etc. I am worried about her going under anethesia at her age, plus she's never been away from home except for trips to the vet. She gets nervous and upset very easily. Please think good thoughts for her. Thank you.

:grouphug I know how you feel. My 13 yr old just had a softball sized hematoma removed from her spleen. She came through the just fine. Waiting to hear if she can come home today.

 

Let us know how your baby does. :grouphug

  • 4 weeks later...

I cried after I left her at the vet this morning, after a million goodbyes and kisses she was put in a cage and just stared at me the whole way as I walked out the door as if to say "why are you leaving me here?". She is such a homebody and gets scared and anxious very easily, my heart broke for her.

 

The good news is I just spoke with the vet and surgery is done, she made it through and came out of the anethesia without a problem. :)

He glued the wound shut instead of stitches :huh .

 

I will be picking her up in a couple hours to bring her home. I want to give her something extra special for dinner tonight, she has got to be famished, any ideas? I was thinking a fast-food hamburger but I don't eat fast food and don't want to give it to her if it might upset her tummy. Maybe I will just cook her some chicken.

 

I just can't help but to think this is "the beginning of the end", though. :( Please wish her many more months of quality life until (if/when) the cancer metastasizes. I love her dearly and she has overcome so much in her life, she certainly has lived each of her 14 years to the fullest.

Here's hoping she's with you for a lot longer. Get her whatever she likes for a special treat. Maybe some ice cream?

Sending hugs. Since pupper had anaesthesia today, maybe a light meal would be best? A bit of poached beef or chicken with a spoonful of ice cream on top?

I know it is hard but try to not think the worst, not all cancers metastasize. Sending prayers. :hope:grouphug

I was thinkig the same thing. Nothing too greasy... and of course a touch of ice cream helps everything feel a little better. :wub:
