Nov 2010 Update on Buddy

(Picture from 23 Oct 2010)

Buddy isn't doing well.  For those of you just reading this LJ for the first time, Buddy is my 10 year old Shih Tzu and he lives with my parents.  I watch him for them quite a bit, so he's my dog too.  Back in March of this year he was diagnosed with an inoperable malignant tumor.   The vet had initially given him a month and now here it is early November.  He'd have good days and bad days.  Right now, Buddy's not eating regularly, he's having trouble going to the bathroom.  Bud's even having trouble jumping up on the furniture and can't be helped up because it hurts him.  His back legs are giving him trouble.  When he sleeps, if he moves in his sleep, he wakes up yelping in pain.  We're taking him to the vet today.

I'm sorry. *hugs* I hope there are things that can be done to treat him. Maybe cortizone? But that doesn't last very long. Maybe there is something that can help him that isn't as short acting.

It was untreatable. See my next post.
