Chemo is not possible nor disrable - we do not want to prolong his life for our sakes if he suffers in the meantime.
We know that the cancer will get him in the end but his prognosis after the op gave him anywhere between 3 and 9 months as his organs are all functioning well. The tumours cannot have progressed so far i just a couple of weeks surely? Besides his symptoms are not like when he had to have the emergency op - he is bright and wagging his tail and even fetching sticks (only a few yards of course) but terribly thin because he has no appetite. I had hoped you would have a suggestion about a seperate condition or one perhaps caused by the operation. The vet told us to expect him to show the same symptoms as before hwen he does decline, but these are not.
We also have a young dog in season that has been with him at home with house-sitters while we were away on holiday. Though he is not in the mood for anything active he is a bit interested - do you think this could be contributing? Previously we have noticed our dogs go off their food when one of the bitches is in season.We are now keeping them apart.
