Julie: I agreed to pose as mum seems to like
taking pictures of me.
See...sometimes I will co-operate!
This is a really nice place to relax. It is soft and comfy and
nicely lit in the evening.
I just like to hang around, keep mum company
and relax. Life is pretty good.
Question from the mum:
The Vet called to say that the lump removed from
Julie is cancer. The Vet says
"removing her other mammary chain or doing chemotherapy
can dramatically increase her survival time."
The chemotherapy that is used for this is doxorubicin and I have used this several times in dogs with lymphoma. It is given by placing an IV catheter and slowly infusing the medication. We usually keep them in the hospital for the day and monitor an ECG. This is done once every 3 weeks for a total of 5 treatments. Cats and dogs tolerate chemotherapy better than humans and don't tend to have as many side effects.
Any thoughts or advice if anyone has gone through this?
Julie is about 13 and I am not ready to lose her.
I also so not want her to be stressed.
I want her to be happy with whatever time she has.
