    Unhappy I just found out my sweet bully has cancer :(

    Hi y'all.
    I'm sorry for doing this as "urgent" but I'm so devastated. I found out 3 days ago that my sweet 6 years old boy has lymphoma cancer.
    The vet said this is a very quick cancer but it responds very good to chemo.
    I don't know what to do I cannot really afford those treatments but at the same time im so afraid of losing him!! I've had him since he was 5 weeks old and he means the world to me!!!
    He doesn't eat like he normally does. He seems more tired. I've been feeding him Royal Canin but now i'm feeding him home cooked meals which he loves!!
    Has anyone experienced this before? I just don't know what to prepare myself for and i'm just so so sad

    Devastating news, my heart goes out to you, it's so difficult to see them struggle
    Please give your sweet boy LOVE from Cami & me...I will include y'all in my prayers.
    I have autoimmune disease and know myself the power of whole foods to help our
    bodies heal themselves. Are you researching holistic Vets for this particular cancer
    & specific diet & supplements?

    Hoping someone knowledgeable responds, please keep us updated...big hugs to you!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    My heart goes out to you. My Ripley went to the rainbow bridge on June 9th. He had Lymphoma Cancer as well. We put him through 3 different Chemo treatments this past year and so we got him a year longer than we should of. He was 3 when he was diagnosed. It broke my heart as well as he was my everything. The Chemo treatments were expensive but I did it as I would of tried anything to keep him here with me. He did well on all three treatments as far as he never got sick and he still acted as though he was a puppy and had lots of energy. I think it was was tougher on my husband and I as we knew the day was coming. It was so sad and my heart breaks for you. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

    I'm so sorry! My cat had that, she was only 4. It started with a tumor on her neck, we had it removed. But it has spread internally. From diagnosis to the time we put her down was 6 months. They wanted to try chemo but it wasn't a guarantee and she was already too weak so we just cherished the time with her. I wish I had better news but yes it is very aggressive. My vet made me feel guilty for not trying everything possible to save her but mentally she was gone, she would sleep in her litterbox, hid under the couch and refused to eat. Don't let anyone make you feel bad about your decision! Cherish every moment.

    I know exactly how you feel. I buried my bulldog a week ago today. He was 12+ years old so I was lucky to have him that long. However, he had his problems. it was last year at this time he had a mass cell tumor removed and was put on chemo, 3 times a week pill. Luckily, we had pet insurance so it was paid for. His drug was Paladia. It's a really good drug so ask your vet about it. He took one Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The other days he took Peroxicam, which is an nsaid. I don't know if you'd have success with the lymphoma, but I will tell you that I've seen a lot of Bullies have problems as such a young age as yours. I miss my Rubin so much that I am still in denial that he's gone. Just love your Bully as much as you can. I will never get another one. I loved him too much and now I feel like I'm suffering without him. You're not alone.

    Thank you so much for the suppurt! This is a very difficult time for me.
    Yesterday we spoke to the vet and she said that she doesn't recommend chemo because she thinks he's too weak for that and too old. I am taking him to a second opinion on Monday. It's a vet that specializes in alternative medicine from what I was told.
    I researched alote and I am feeding him dr. Demian diet.
    It seems like Lenny is losing his appetite and he sleeps alote. He has a look on his eyes that he's in pain and I feel lost. I give him all the love and suppurt but it's just so painful!
    I appreciate all your sweet messages. It does give me strength :-)
