    I can't believe the difference a week makes...we took her in on Monday to discuss the fluid build up with the vet and she had gained 3.6 lbs.  Gracie has been having black tarry, mucousy stools on and off for the last three days and she has been vomiting.  Her appetite has been lacking a bit.   Anyway, we returned today to get the fluid drained and she gained another 4 lbs. in that short period.  ...

      Hi Jsmerdy! How is your pup?  How did she do while you were away?  We are going through the end stages right now ourselves and there are so many ups and downs.  Just started some new symptoms with blood in her stools and bloated belly with fluid.  She is on the stomach protectants.  We stopped the peroxicam and are seeing the vet tomorrow to get her belly drained and talk.  Her appetite ...

        Hi Everley and thank you...so I found out it is a build up of fluid.  The cancer is progressing.  She does not seem to have any discomfort.  She stretches out and looks relaxed.  When her belly is palpitated - she does not show any signs of pain.  So we are pretty sure she's still not in pain.  Last night she was up three times so it was a tough night.  But I don't know if that is ...

          Good evening!  Over the past week or so we have noticed that Gracie has had a bit of a bloated stomach.  Some days she has no appetite and others she is ravenous.  We had at least 4 feedings last week that she was not interested in.  So my hubby made a vegetable, bison and beef concotion that we mix with her commercial food and she has really enjoyed it.  She normally has pretty loose skin on...

            Hi JoeIndy,I am so sorry to hear about your pup!  I am somewhat new to the Cancer Compass website but there is a super board here that is titled CANINE BLADDER CANCER FINAL STAGES.  There is a lot of information on the board about what to expect.  There are some that have had their beloved pup die naturally and others that had to put them down.  My weimaraner, Gracie was diagnosed 7/27/18...she is...

                  Hi everyone! I am so sad to hear all of these stories but find comfort in knowing we are not alone in our journey. On 7/27/18, our female weimaraner, Gracie was diagnosed with TCC.  She's 11 years old and has been a Type 1 diabetic for 3 years and she was always predisposed to UTI's.  So when she had accidents and blood in her urine we just figured it was another UTI.  The vet put her on antibiotics an...
