Carla and Paul M., April 25, 2018
At the young age of 5, our beloved Weimaraner Blue was diagnosed with Lymphoma. Blue's condition downgraded quickly, he lost weight, would not eat, was lethargic and overall, he was dying.
The stage of Lymphoma was at its worst and if we were to put Blue down at that time, we would have considered it the right decision. Then came a referral to Dr. Post who examined Blue quickly and provided us with options to treat Blue. The initial goal would be a 1-year survival term. There was never any consideration on our part and we moved forward with the chemotherapy treatment.
Blue quickly responded to treatment and showed signs of the dog we knew pre-cancer. Blue tolerated treatment as if nothing was happening and one year passed with Blue cancer free. The end result was Blue passed at the age of 11 years 8 months, a normal lifespan for a Weim. Not for one moment did we regret our decision to treat the cancer and Dr. Post cured the pet that meant so much to us.
Canine cancer is not a death sentence and Blue is proof.
Thanks to advances in pet cancer treatments, we’re hearing many more tales of triumph, as more of our furry family are beating the disease. If you’ve got a story of success, we’d love to hear it!
