I could use some support. My dog has been acting a little off lately, and when at 3:30am he wouldn’t get out of bed wben my fiance woke up for work, I decided to bring him in to the vet to the emergency section.
They said he has blood in his stomach and it is most likely cancer. They are going to do an x-ray today to see if it has metasized in his lungs. If not, then we will likey perform surgery to see what mass is causing the tumor. If it is malignant which the doc is pretty sure it is, he will have 1-3 months. If it has metasized, there is nothing that can be done.
This truly is the best dog ever. He just lives for love and affection. He basically is my fiance’s and I’s life. My wedding is in less than 3 weeks I would give it all up for him to just be healthy. I wish I had the cancer not him.

Oh no… I’m so sorry. I’m a pet person too, and I know how hard it is to see your furballs sick or to know that there isn’t a lot of time left. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for your dog and your Fiance and you. 🙂

Oh honey I’m so sorry. I went through something very similar with my cat Smee. He developed a tumor in his chest beside his heart. We had about 10 months with him thanks to daily medication that reduced the inflamation. It was really difficult when it was time for him to go and I still miss him every day. Just make him comfortable and give him all his favourite foods. Spoil him rotten and know that you’re a good mommy for loving him so much and wanting what’s best for him. It’s never the right time for stuff like this to happen, and it’s never easy.
Sending you lots and lots of ((hugs)) and love. PM me any time if you need to chat. I hope things go well at the vet.

How odd that you should post this today. One of our cats has had vomitting/diarrhea for the past couple days, and we took her to the vet today. They took X-rays, and while there is nothing definitive like a blockage or obvious tumor, given her age and the symptoms it sounds like stomach or intestinal cancer is a good possibility. She has been unable to keep anything down the past few days, so they gave her fluids and and a shot to try to settle her stomach, as well as some easily digestible food. Gave her the first small amount of food and she threw that up, and now won’t even touch the next small amount we gave her.
Because of the diarrhea and vomiting, we’ve been keeping her in the bathroom, (a lot easier to clean than carpet). Now she’s not even attempting to get out of the door when we check on her. They want to run some more tests if she doesn’t show improvement, but honestly, I don’t know that we can afford it right now, which makes it all the harder.
This really, really, sucks doesn’t it? Just thought you might like to know there’s someone out there going through a similiar problem, and that you’re not alone. I will definitely keep you and your boy in my prayers.

I’m very sorry to hear about your fur-friend and companion. 🙁
There are few things worse than the passing of a dog. I’ve been there and you have my sympathies.

I’m so sorry. A couple of summers ago I had to put down my dog I’d had since kindergarten because she was in so much pain and was dying, and it was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. Appreciate your time with him, cuddle him, kiss him, spoil him.

I am so sorry this is happening to your dog =[ No words can provide comfort, I know. I love my dog very much and couldn’t imagine losing him.

I’m so so sorry to hear this!
I had a kitty a couple years ago that had a stroke and died. 🙁 I couldn’t even say whether or not to have him put down. He died before I could make the decision, so I guess he knew that it was okay for him to pass on. (Yes, I’m tearing up while writing this… and this was in 08, I think.)
Lots of hugs to you, your Fiance, and the poor pup!
