KellyandKris216 Posted March 27, 2016 Share Posted March 27, 2016 (edited) Our beloved River went to the e-vet last night after persistent vomiting/regurgitation despite multiple vet visits over the last few days. The call came in this morning that they've found systemic mast cells in his blood. Devastated isn't even close to how we feel. The resident oncologist and pathologist are being given a heads up to take a look and will be in tomorrow, but in the meantime I'd like to send them to Dr. Couto for his opinion. Normally I could look these things up, but I'm such a mess right now it's all I can do to type this. Can someone tell me the best way to contact him, how to pay his consult fee, and what I should ask to be sent to him? Are physical slides sent to him, or just a write up of the findings? I guess their microscope doesn't take pictures of the slides; I don't know if that's normal or not. I didn't even think to ask what kind of cancer, or if they knew. I know his platelets are low and his spleen is very enlarged. Please, please help. If it matters, he's at The Life Center in Leesburg, VA. His normal vet is Towne Animal Clinic, who are heroes for going into to the office at 11:30pm last night to fax his records and test results from the last week over to TLC. Happy Easter, Cancer. I hate you too. He's only 4.5. Edited March 27, 2016 by KellyandKris216 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
