Re: Cookie has new lumps :(

Cookie is spending the day at the vet, and I'm happy to report that her blood panel came back nearly perfect! Her liver and kidneys functions are good, her cholesterol is good. The only things that were a little high were lipase and amylase (I am sure I have spelled those incorrectly) but it's nothi...

Re: Cookie has new lumps :(

Thank you again, everyone! Cookiebear seems to be doing well and keeping in good spirits, though I see her with a much more critical eye now that I know she's not just feeling her age. I have a four day weekend so I'll be able to keep a good watch on her.

Re: Cookie has new lumps :(

Cookie had her blood drawn this evening, but didn't get any meds and her bladder was too small to get anything. The vet she was seeing is on vacation and hadn't really given me complete information. Apparently the Elspar requires five to ten hours of observation to ensure that she doesn't have any r...

Re: Cookie has new lumps :(

Alrighty, just spoke to the vet, who wanted to know if I had at least picked up the prednisone, so that was fun to have to explain again that we can't do that until next week . Anyhow, I asked him about the $150 injection, and it's Elspar (L-asparaginase). I have not yet been able to find any inform...

Re: Cookie has new lumps :(

Thank you all so much for your kind words and good wishes. Thank you, too, for offering to help. We will be able to pay for her care, just not until next week. What is the $100 injection? If its a steroid injection, it shouldn't cost $100... In my hands, oral steroids give 2-4 months of quality time...

Re: Cookie has new lumps :(

I hope the steroid shots give you more time together, and quality time at that. One of our pitties is 15 years old, a mast cell cancer survivor, and she's getting tons of lumps now. Every time the vet comes to aspirate the new lumps to check for MCT recurrence, I fear for her (so far, we're lucky)....

Re: Cookie has new lumps :(

Okay, just spoke to the vet - it's lymphoma, but he thinks we caught it relatively early. The options were: 1. Do nothing, and she'll likely be gone in a couple of months 2. Chemotherapy, which he says can get you up to two more years, but is very expensive. 3. Treatment at the office with steroids,...

Re: Cookie has new lumps :(

The last post was via phone, it's easier to type now. :) Cookie has swollen lymph nodes everywhere, and pending the lab results, we're thinking it's lymphosarcoma. Super nice doctor, I liked him a lot; very straightforward. He didn't bother to give her the bordetella vaccine she was due for, because...

Re: Cookie has new lumps :(

We are at the vet; she is having a needle aspiration and cytology. We should know by Sunday if it's lymphosarcoma or not, but she has swollen nodes all over. Poor Cookiebear! She also is having an eye problem.
