Pathology’s back. It’s Hemangiosarcoma

No real surprise, and we’ll just have to stay on top of things.  Jet continues with his mushroom supplements and K9 Immunity Plus, all at therapeutic (doubled) doses.  I’ll talk to oncologists but I’m not sure additional chemotherapy will be possible or warranted.

He’s definitely feeling better and enjoying being a dog, so we plan to let him do that.  His oncologist felt the original surgery plus doxorubicin bought him 1,000 days.  This tumor was very small and hemangio in this location is not highly metastatic.  We retain our optimism as well as our vigilance.

Jet’s Home

We picked Jet up yesterday and the vet is optimistic.  The tumor itself was quite small (still pea sized) but apparently other tissue was encapsulating it (isn’t the body amazing).

He’s resting comfortably now, and you know what they say about sleeping dogs . . .

Damn Cancer!

Jet is at the vet for revision surgery on his hemangiosarcoma tumor.  His margins weren’t clean after the original surgery, but we’d hoped that chemo would kill what was left.  No such luck.  Started feeling a pea sized mass a few weeks ago, and now it’s grown to a marble, clearly imbedded in his chest wall.  He’s been his happy, healthy, energetic self, and his whiskers even started growing back.  In fact, Ann thinks his fur is thicker than it ever was.  Guess it’s time to call his oncologist and see where we go from here.

Fingers crossed!
