    First I’m so sorry your boy has this cancer. I sort of worry you are running out of options as well. The trickle means he has a blockage. I’m a part of a Facebook TCC group and it seems for some stentcsnbean option but it feels more short term. Just weeks or a a few months. It becomes such a difficult decision. Do you buy weeks or months? You mentioned a financial concern here too. I know some have tried a typ...

      Oh it’s ok! I’m not upset with you. I was more afraid you thought I wrote that post. I don’t agree with them ;). We are good :)

        Petra, I did not post that meassage. I noticed you mentioned my name. It came from Oriane and I do not know that person. I would never tell you to let your dog go or end Nikas suffering. One thing you will find from the Facebook group is no one pushes you in one direction or the other. It’s a very supportive group with a lot of knowledgeable pet parents. You will find many do just piroxicam, or chemo, radiation, ste...

          I sent a message to the admin person, Debbie. It can take her a couple of days to approve which feels like a lifetime to some. Hopefully she approves it today. It’s such a great group and lots of support. I’m sarah Yates, so once you post, I’ll reply there. If you hear nothing in a couple of days, let me know. Thanks

            Hi there. Are you on Facebook? There is a large dog transitional cell carcinoma group there. I have seen others ask about laser ablation. Let me know if you are able to join otherwise I can ask the group for you.

              First I’m sorry your baby has this cancer. You do want to add a stomach protectant because the piroxicam can cause stomach ulcers. So even if you don’t see vomiting or diarrhea, it’s mesnt to coat the stomach. My girl was 20 lbs and she took 1 (10mg) Pepcid ac a day. Talk to your cetabiut this and even if they don’t recommend it, it’s fine to give. MOST vets insist on it. Are you on Facebook? There is a large ...

                I remember reading each and every post here when my girl Scooter was diagnosed. I found all of this very helpful. I am sorry for your loss. I do hate that this cancer doesn’t treat our babies well. They are incredibly strong though.

                  I'm sorry to hear about both your babies. I had a beagle with TCC. She passed away abou a year ago. Shortly after finding this thread I found a group on Facebook. There are many pet owners there with different backgrounds. Are either of you on Facebook? The groupi is called dog transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) bladder cancer. I'll check back but if you are interested my name is sarah Yates. I would be happy...
