We see this very commonly and treat many dogs yearly with chemotherapy. Most of them do very well. What is she going to do with her dog? How is he doing?

per my friend , she is going to assess the quality of life roly will have with the options, and then decide fromthere. i think roly is around 3-5 years old.. i know they dont have alot of money, so extensive treatment might not be an option. :(

So very sad. I wish them the best in whatever decison they make.
There's a fine line between genius and insanity. I have erased this line.

Maryellen you should refer her to Carolann. She is not expensive and she will give them a lot of information on what to avoid and what to do as far as supplements. She helped me keep Pookie alive for two years, when her prognosis was to only live twelve weeks.

Oh no, I didn't realize it was roly :cry:
I unsubscribed from realpitbull over a year ago. If it was graded as a two, the prognosis isn't as grim, but Pookie's was graded as a 2 at first, then graded as a 3 by the oncologist. Sometimes it helps to get a second opinion. I hope she gets in touch with Carolann. Poor Roly.
