Hi Litasmom.  I have been reading all the posts and am so glad I found all of you.  First, let me say how sorry I am about your fur baby.  I don't have kids so my baby girl Roxi is my baby. Roxi is a 12 yr old Jack Russell who was diagnosed with bladder cancer in May.  The only symptoms at first was frequent urination and she seemed to be straining to go every time.  I worked as a Vet Asst. for several years so I took her to the vet where I use to work.  She really thought it was going to be a UTI but after ultrasound and checking her urine under a scope she told me it was bladder cancer.  Of course, my first reaction was to cry.  She put Roxi on Medicam and rechecked in a month to see if the mass had changed any. No change but at least it wasn't bigger!  We take what we can get.  Over the past month or so, Roxi started leaking when she was sleeping now the past couple weeks she has begun to leak constantly.  I'm not having a lot of luck keeping diapers on her so I've been doing a lot of laundry, cleaning floors, furniture and her!  I know it's going to get worse as we go along and it's so good to have others on here who have gone through the same thing.  

My 12 yr old Jack Russell, Roxi was diagnosed with bladder cancer in May. Our vet, who I use to work with at the clinic, showed me the mass on the ultrasound which does kinda look like a blob on the screen.  She also took a urine sample and looked at it under the microscope and was able to see the cancer cells.  I hope this is some help to you.  I know how hard this is.  I've been devistated since I got the diagnosis about Roxi.  She has been taking Medicam since May but now she is leaking urine constantly and our vet is putting her on the Piroxicam tomorrow to see if that will help.  Good luck to you and your fur baby.
