Loca Misdiagnosed?

Recommended Posts

All fingers, paws, and toes crossed. A misdiagnosis would be a fabulous thing. But do tell her that the wine is for mom, not slinky little black girlies.

Miracle vs misdiagnosis........ Don't care what it is called, just as long as it is. I am also thinking we should all grab a bottle of wine and dance on a table as soon as we find out for certain "NO CANCER!". :hope:pepper:pepper:pinkele:pepper:pepper:hope

Robin - Thank You! for the call tonight to tell me the news. I am overjoyed that my Loca Polka has soem good news!

If you go to OSU, I am going with you! No arguements. Will leave Phen with his loverboy Eric! :lol:P and my hounds.


That is the most amazingly great news!!!!!!! What happens next, more x-rays? Planning a trip to Ohio?

i won't hesitate to go to Ohio if recommended. i'm waiting for direction from my vet plus i'll reply to Dr. Couto's questions. i had completely forgotten that around 1.5 months ago a friend visited with his greyhound and the three of them (his hound, phene and loca) did some heavy duty running. i think that's around when all of this started. i'm such an idiot :headwall

Take the time to stop and smell the flowers - appreciate your everyday ordinary miracles

I am so glad my vet and so many kind people here on GT recommended I contact Dr. Couto. Below is his response to my email and Loca's x-rays :yay


Hi Robin: We just finished looking at Loca's Xrays with a couple of radiologists, and we believe that what we are seeing is an artifact (ie; something that is not really there). We think that the "lytic" area the radiologist described is actually Loca's normal lung lobe superimposed with her scapula. None of the other views show any abnormalities, and in the radiology world, we usually don't call it unless we can see it in more than 1 views.Can you please give me more info about her? Is she painful in that area? Is she lame?Please let us know how we can help, and take care

Am I getting ahead of myself since I feel so relieved and escastic?


OMG Robin!!! Please let it be true!!!!!
