    Hello everyone.  I haven't been on here since November.  I lost my little girl to this disease in October of last year.  My hear goes out to all of you who are going through this right now.  When Peaches was going thru this, I purchased something called Tinkle Trousers which is similar to the PeeKeeper, but for larger dogs.  I never was able to use these on Peaches, so I would be happy to&nbs...

      That is GREAT news!  I am so happy to hear that.  Lets keep praying for stones and no TCC.

        From what the oncologist told me, the only way to determine 100% for sure if it is TCC is to get a sample of the mass.  In Peaches case, they inserted a urinary catheter and took out a fluid and cell sample of the mass.  I think that was called a cystoscopy.  Prior to that she had 2 ultra sounds and x rays which showed there was  a mass, but there was nothing definitive saying it was TCC.  I ...

          Hi Garry, When Peaches was first diagnosed over 2 years ago, her tumor was less than 1 cm.  She has had multiple ultrasounds throughout this disease and the final was this past July when the tumor was taking up almost all of her bladder.  I did not put her thru chemo becasue she was deathly afraid to go into a vets office.  She did see the best oncologist in this area (PVSEC) in Pittsburgh when needed...

            Hi everyone, this is Peaches mom. I just wanted to give everyone some encouragement. Two and a half years ago, my baby was diagnosed with this horrible disease and only given 6-12 months. She just passed away 3 weeks ago today. My heart is completely broken, and I miss her terribly. But, I was given so much more time with her than any doctor ever expected, and for that I am so very grateful. The love her and I had fo...

                Hi Everyone,  This is Peaches mom, Debbie.  I have not posted on here since the end of May.  It just started to get very hard to talk about.  Peaches was diagnosed 2 years and 3 months ago, and at that time was given only 6-12 months, so she is one of the lucky (actually, I am the lucky one!!!).  Her last ultrasound showed that her tumor is now taking up almost all of her bladder, so I know w...

                  Hi Chris, Yes, UTI still there.  Just talked to her doctor yesterday and she told me she will probably have it the rest of her life.  And every month we will just switch out different kinds of anitbiotics to keep her on to keep the infection at bay.  This really SUCKS!  She recommends yet another ultrasound to see how much the cancer has progressed.  And also to increase her dosage of Tramad...

                    Claire/Chris, Thanks for your advice.  I will ask my vet about the drugs you suggested.  Her culture showed that the bacteria should respond to amoxicillian, but she was on that for 4 weeks and it did nothing.  Last culture showed the same thing.  When the vet tried to perscribe amox again, I got upset and told her that she just got off of it and it didn't work.  I told her that cost was not...

                      I haven't been on this post for a couple of months, but hoping someone can give some advice.  My lab has had this horrible disease for 2 years and recently, it appears that the cancer is progressing pretty fast.  She is on piroxicam, but has recently had a bladder infection that will not clear up.  I frequently have her urine cultured and the last culture shows that here are 2 different types of bacter...
