Hopefully, we’ll in no circumstances need it, but I feel better for the sake of example, liked having companions with her during chemo while Victoria Irwin, who spent her chemo time in solitary pursuits like explore, preferred to save friends’ graciousness for another time. I simply put my Lucy to sleep on Friday, August 26th.
That was hardest decision to make.

They will come on very fast, and your vet usually fixed, surgery is the preferred treatment for these tumors. Here goes more information. Any injection usually can result in an injection site sarcoma. Since chemotherapy weakens health and slows down healing, she has been solving that surgery during chemotherapy usually can be risky. When she was simply under two years quite old, Celica Blue was diagnosed with lymphoma a little bit more than 2 months ago.
With all research they did and in speaking to an oncologist, I’m almost sure I understood that was a way to go, the expense is damned, I under no circumstances thought they would put my cat through chemo.
For all intents and purposes, a normal kitty. We’ll see where we stand. You should make this seriously. Her sixth treatment is coming up. I’m sure you heard about this. She’s responded beautifully. Appetite, weight, energy all fine, the mass will barely be felt, no consequences, not whisker loss. Now please pay attention. Thanks. My cat has no overt tumors but an extremely lofty whitish blood count. If anyone has had this situation, I will appreciate hearing from you and how things went. That’s interesting, right?

You responded that surgery shouldn’t be done during chemo course, after explore something else in the comment area we have another idea though.
It was not the ER vets who will not refer me, they are affiliated with the specialty vets, it was my standard vet who was probably reluctant to refer me.
I practically wish he my be more up front with me. Furthermore, I thought you were right about age thing likewise. Consequently, he had been in practice since 70’s at least, so I doubt it’s lack of knowledge of these situations. What he is not saying was probably making me worry just as much as what he does say. Remember, we are always all people, even in the animal world and all think differently. I still feel that it’s completely obtaining time, the words made me part rethink my mind, and quite often the quality of health just ain’t there, I’ve usually felt chemo should be putting an animal through a bunch of stress, as much as anything else. Personally, I still feel I should not seek for to put any cat of mine through that. My vet gave me more of a Que sera decision. While avoiding telling me what he practically thinks, or if he truly can’t give an honest prognosis after her surgery, now I am questioning if he is hopeful. With that said, my cat’s tumor was not benign nor was we given a prognosis, So there’s no not a sure decision when it gets to finding out whether to choose chemotherapy for our cat. The second most vital thing has been to not hold on to them for our sake, the first most vital thing is always not to let our pets suffer.
You did well by our own kitty.
We miss them. Notice that my Eloise was always mostly oral chemo. Besides, I understand I’m obtaining time. She seems OK so far, on occasion subdued… but the moment I see she has been no longer relishing existence, thence it gonna be time. Thanks for posting this Ingrid. It has given me more to think about before they make my decision. Then once more, please see next reply to you. Now pay attention, please. The best course of action is to consult with a veterinary oncologist. Age shouldn’t be the main factor in making a treatment decision, Therefore in case, our cat has probably been otherwise good. Thank you for this article. Praline was helped to bridge one month after her diagnosis.
I’ve oftentimes wondered if they made right decision.
I chose not to do chemotherapy on Sweet Praline when she was diagnosed with cancer. Did you know that the vet said because of her age and her prognosis of a month to a year left, she didn’t recommend treatment. I have not had a cat who enjoyed a trip house out. Ultimately succumbed to aggressive cancer nine months after first surgery, he had two surgeries. After this surgery, cancer started growing; first intestinal surgery did not reveal cancer. I opted not to do chemo on my FIV+ cat who had multiple tumors in his abdomen and surrounding area. Notice that he usually lived two months after that surgery. I am glad I spared his frequent trips to the vet for chemo. It’s an interesting fact that the second surgery was done in hopes of extending his existence.
It’s a roller coaster.
She doesn’t is being suffering… But she’s more subdued. It’s after surgery. My 11-year-old enough cat, Eloise, was diagnosed with little cell lymphoma. I have access to Angie’s List nationwide so So if you look for to tell me your zip code, I could look for you, I would look for another vet promptly like Ingrid said. With all that said… I’d request a referral, Therefore in case, you have acquaintances with pets. My 11 year rather old tabby Ben has diagnosed with stomach cancer wall one year ago.
We got the feeling she was making excuses and was concerned about liability. Frankly, I hate to seem suspicious and probably they merely being gonna be either inflammation or injection site sarcoma. The actual question is. How do Chemo injections result in cancer? He’s been receiving Chemo since thence and was doing terrific.
Surgical removal has usually been the advised treatment, vet says they can’t surgically remove the Chemo lumps as long as.
I am simply not sure what to think about this turn of events. Sorry, I just don`t understand what to think. Anyways, it stinks to have to put the faith in the professionals and after all feel like you can’t trust their expertise. I’m sure that the male vet has been still not recommending chemo for my cat. Has been it as long as he wants my money? I figured out the day that they don’t need his referral. So vet that I originally saw was this associate one and her old me that they don’t do chemo for cats with breast tumors.
She stayed there two nights and was consequently able to come home.
We are looking at not conclusions kind they will be playing around with. I am so confused. I’d say if they done hereafter why don’t they say that while not giving these opinions without clear explanations. Considering above said. He didn’t even look for to refer me to an oncologist. Care quality should’ve been there for nearly any patient. He has shown me a few times if I am working but as long as he gets paid, that he has, I’m pretty sure I can not see why will my vet need to keep me from seeking a specialized opinion? Wouldn’t be in my better interest pet to speak to a specialist? My cat had her full mastectomy past week, and the vet had ME transport her to ER and downplayed her condition to me. Is he hiding something? I saw she was full of it.
