So we went into the vet today to pick up Lucy. She had an ultrasound to see if they could find a cancer tumor, from where the cancer in her lungs may have originated. Still there is a 15% chance it’s not cancer, it could be something else.

They didn’t find a tumor. All her organs are fine.. her heart, spleen, liver, kidneys… so if it’s cancer, the tumor is too small to find. I saw the xrays, too, and they are very spotty. My husband’s mother died of Melanoma. And he thought Lucy’s xrays looked like his Mother’s xrays when they diagnosed her 15 years ago. She died within 4 months of diagnosis.

Anyway, the vet said that there’s not much we can do at this point. However, I’m going to take her xrays up to a local holistic vet, Kim Hennemen, and see what she has to say about Lucy. It can’t hurt, and I actually prefer holistic doctors, for humans and dogs, to traditional doctors. Unfortunately my husband prefers traditional doctors. So hopefully we can find some middle ground about treating her.
