Casey the Pirate

Six Month Ampuversary

Casey became a TriPaw six months ago today, and I have lots of news.

First of all, Casey is doing great.  I was just traveling for eight days, and he was SO happy to see me when I returned.  That spirit that is Casey is alive and well.  He’s been messing with that lesion on his rib cage, but more on that later.

Jet had his second chemo this afternoon.  Because his hemangiosarcoma was subcutaneous without an apparent visceral primary tumor, we can treat him with Doxorubicin.  He’s also taking two powdered mushroom supplements and K9 Immunity Plus.  His oncologist thinks he looks great, so we are upbeat.

Now, about Bode, our Boytel spaniel.  I found a lump in Bode’s armpit three or four weeks ago, but this one felt much more like a lipoma.  Regardless, with our track record lately, I’ve been watching it pretty carefully.

All of the dogs are now eating Turkey Tail and Maximum Recovery Formula mushroom powders from Canine Matrix, and the K9 Immunity Plus.  Jet is on double dosage yet as he supposedly has active disease.  Remember Casey’s lesion?  It’s from licking at a palm sized but very thin fatty tumor under his skin in the middle of the flap for his incision.  Well . . . as far as I can tell, the fatty tumor is gone.  It’s just not there anymore, so hopefully the lesion can heal.  Also, I can’t find Bode’s lump anymore either.  I was about the size of a small grape, and it’s just gone.  We’re watching this stuff pretty carefully, but Ann thinks she and I should start using mushroom powders ourselves.

    Happy Hippy Hoppy ampuversary Casey!

    Disappearing lumps, can’t get any better than that. We know about the Lump Patrol in our house too, with 2 dogs having soft tissue sarcomas. Happy to hear your pack are all doing well!
