    I am so sorry you and Shadow are going through this horrible cancer. It's been 5 years since my Scotty passed and I can pinpoint three things that signaled the time right before she passed. First she stopped sleeping with me and instead stayed on a blanket by the kitchen door. Second she completely stopped eating and third she could only walk to the end of the driveway before having to go back to the house. Three mon...

      Oh Rose, my heart goes out to you on the loss of your beloved Boo. I agee that this cancer is a cruel way to go. I too did not see that my Kenzie's leg pain was related to the cancer. Be gentle with yourself because like most of us on this site, we just don't know this disease and we go by what out vets tell us. I remember that last walk too. It was the day the vet agreed to come to my house to help get her to Rainbo...

        Hi HoneysMom, Yes, my sweet Scottie MacKenzie went through the same thing. Is Honey in pain? Kenzie was in so much pain, you could not touch her anywhere near her back legs. I found a vet that treated her with a cold laser. Although she would be in some discomfort during the treatment, by the end of the session she would be walking normally. It would last about 2 days and then she would not want to walk again. I bou...

          My heart goes out to your sweet Butch but especially to you as Butch's Mom. The pain of waiting is so devastating that at times I could hardly stand it. I can't tell you what to do for your dear Butch, but this is what I did for my Scotty, MacKenzie. I chose not to do chemo because of cost and my vet could only give me 30% chance of it working. Kenzie was on Piroxicam to slow the tumor growth and Misoprostal to prote...

            My heart goes out to you Lita's Mom. Lita fought so hard to stay with you. I believe their spirit never wants to leave us. You will see your dear, sweet girl again. I have to believe that or I would not want to go on without my Scotty girl who passed from TCC this past April 14. Mornings and nights are the hardest because of the routine necessary with this cancer. You did everything possible for Lita and you made her...

              I'm so glad Lita is doing so great! You are a wonderful Mom to Lita as well. Peroxicam and Misoprostol to protect the stomach kept my Mackenzie going for almost 2 years. Just keep supporting Lita's immune system. Kenzie took milk thistle and cranberry extract, along with probiotics. She was on the cancer diet with lots of chicken, beef, salmon and veggies (no simple carbs or sugar). It sounds like Lita wants so much ...

                After the ultrasounds to diagnose TCC, I did not have any additional ultrasounds so I don't know if the cancer had spread. My vet said it would likely spread to the lungs first. I hope your Lita does not have TCC, so keep us posted after your appointment. Fingers crossed!

                  Lita sounds like an amazing girl! Looking at the date of your post I think our girls were going through similar things at the same time. My Scotty Mackenzie started having large clots which was so upsetting to see. She was having trouble walking and I knew it was the tumor pressing on a nerve in her back. As long as you think Lita is comfortable and eating then hang in there with her. She will let you know when she's...
