Thread: My Bully has cancer :(

  1. #1

    Unhappy My Bully has cancer :(

    I took Bowser back to the vet yesterday as he has had diarrhea for the last 5 weeks with no change. 3 different meds to help stop it. On tuesday and Wednesday he couldn't hold anything he ate down. They took a few Xrays yesterday to see if there was an obstruction. They found a mass behind his stomach and 3 nodes in his chest.
    They proceeded to do an ultrasound where they found that the mass was in the lower intestine and appears to be blocking most of the passage. When I saw the xrays he said that it was a 90% chance of cancer and he would know tomorrow from the blood work.
    Does anyone know anything that might help me get him to absorb the nutrients faster? He has already dropped from 54.5lbs to 49.6 in 8 days.
    He is a little over 2 years old.

    My Bella has a congenital issue that does not allow herself to absorb and digest nutrients. The vet has her on digestive enzymes. I am not sure if this supplement would help in your dogs case or not. It is a powder that is mixed with the food and incubated for 20 mins before eating. You may want to ask him, the vet Rx is expensive, but if it works you can purchase it via the EPI website.

    I'm am hoping and praying for you and your Bully. I had a golden retriever with cancer, but we didn't find out till it was too late. Please dear God, don't let it be too late.

    I am so sorry to hear about Bowser ! I am not of much help on the nutrient thing though Bella's Mom had a good idea. I don't see why that couldn't help. He and your family will be in my prayers as well.

    I am going to give NuVet a try. Anything at this point I will try. Thank you for sharing this.
    Thank you all for the kind words and support.

    I am so sorry to hear that Bowser has cancer. I would think his young age would help him tolerate treatment. My prayers go out to you and him.

    So very sorry to hear your baby is sick. Oh so young.... my heart breaks for you both. You are in our prayers. I am not sure if NuVet can do what the enzymes that @Bella'sMom can- I would consult with your vet.
