Heute wird ihr Blut fuer weitere Untersuchungen abgenommen und am Freitag folgt dann die grosse Operation. Auch wenn die Biopsie erhoffen laesst, dass der Tumor noch nicht gestreut hat, muss der Tierarzt weitraeumig um die Stelle, an der der Tumor aufgetreten ist, schneiden, um auszuschliessen, das sich bereits Metastasen gebildet haben. Wir werden Euch auf dem laufenden halten.
Thanks for all the good wishes we have received for Shiloh. We now know that she has "Mastzellenkrebs", a cancer older dogs get more often. Unfortunately Shiloh is way to young for this. The good news are that she is in stage 2 out of 3. The bad news, the vet says this seems to be genetically which means there is a big chance that she will get it again also we might be able to catch the whole cancer this time.
Today she needs to get her blood work done and on Friday she is going to have the big surgery. Even thought the biopsy showed that the cancer probably didn't spread this time, the vet has to cut over a wide area through her chest where the tumor had been to make sure that there are no metastasis. We will keep you posted.
