This morning I received sad news about Bobbie, the senior sheltie who is at Delta Community Animal Shelter and has had major surgery for bladder stones. I was to pick her up day after tomorrow.
Sadly, she has cancer. Not in the bladder, but the leg. Her 'bum leg' that we thought was just a case of severe arthritis started swelling late last week and a needle aspirate was done. On the weekend Bobbie stopped eating, the swellling continued to spread outward and inflame, and this morning the test results came back - tumor.
Unfortunately it isn't a good tumor so they have put her on steroids at the vet for the next 24 hours to see how she does, but will likely help her to pass tomorrow. The tumour is painful, and the prognosis for any success with chemo is not good, and none of us want her to suffer....
DCAS will keep me posted. Meanwhile, send pain-free vibes for our sweet, sweet girl.
