I've been treating my German Shephard for a UTI but it hasn't seemed to get any better, so I took him to the vet today. We did xrays and a lot of tests and found some suspcious looking cells. Its probable that he has prostrate cancer. Its very rare in neutered males, especially ones that were neutered when they were so young, but it does happen. We are crossin our fingers that perhaps the cells are just looking weird because of the chronic UTI, but it doesn't look good. His prostate does seem a bit enlarged and lumpy, but there again, that could be from infection, which he definately has. There were a ton of white cells in his urine, so we have changed antibiotics to help clear that up. Send all the pixie dust you can for my guy. Hes a great dog and deserves better, and I really don't want to lose another this soon.

Well, the call came today. He has a very aggressive cancer. Really nothing we can do for it. We need to get him over the UTI and then go from there. I may try Peroxicam, its been known to slow down the growth of tumors. I am also going to investigate Holistic medicines. Without knowing exactly when this developed since it was just a fluke we found it, he could have from 2-8 months.

Well, I've made a plan. After we get his UTI cleared up, he will go on Piroxicam, which is highly recommended by Purdue and Indiana University for slowing down the tumors growing process. We may or may not include cisplatin. I have reservations about this because chemotherapy like this can be hard on his kidneys, and we really need those to hold out. He is also going to start on colodial silver and 4 herb tea. I'm going to mix some eastern and western meds here, cause we just don't know what works. I know none of this is going to cure the cancer, though I've read several testimonies from people who have done the herbal and they say it cured their dogs. I havent' talked to my vet about any of this, but she pretty much agrees with my treatments, even when I worked for her and would make suggestions she always liked them. If I can slow the cancer process down for 18 months to 2 years, I will be thrilled. (not really, I want another 20 with him, but know thats not possible) We have a long road ahead of us, but I feel better knowing I have a plan that can work.
I have one dog that the vets said would never walk again, and he bounces around the house like a pup after 8 months of therapy 5 times a day, which incidentally blew my elbow out, but it doesn't matter, he is doing great. Hes even back up to his 130lbs, which I never thought I'd see. I dragged him to work with me everyday, even though he couldn't walk, and we battled and battled, and at times he was very mad at me, but now, I think he knows what I did for him. Now we have to work on his brother.

Heres a not so good update. We had an ultrasound done last week and at the same time did a needle apirate directly into the tumor to pull some cells. The biopsy is back, it is definately cancer. It appears that it may be urethra cancer instead of prostate. I was informed today that he has about 3-6 months to live. With the chemo he could have an additional 3-4 months. This would entail a trip to the vets every 3-4 weeks. The chemo is 450.00 a bottle, he would get to 2 treatments out of each bottle. IF he tolerated it, he would need a total of 6 treatments. He would be put on IV drip for 20 minutes each time, and then would have to take something for his upset belly. The cost isn't a factor, I would remortgage my house to buy him time, but not 3 months, I don't think its worth the aggravation to him and the terrible effect that chemo can have on his kidneys. He would have to have a CBC done every 10 days to make sure his other organs are tolerating it. Its not like with people, it doesn't cure the cancer, just extends how long you live with it. Looking at him, you wouldn't think there is a thing wrong with him. Hes gained weight and seems happy. Hes on his 4 herb tea three times a day, soloxine for his thyroid twice a day, colodal siliver once a day, and a liver vitamin, pancreas vitamin once a day and his piroicam for slowing the growth of the tumor down and pain relief once a day. I know that seems like a lot, but its spread between three feedings a day. This is extremely difficult. Everytime I look at him I just want to hug him and not let go.

Today has been the hardest yet of all. After a very sleepless night, I took Kaiser to the vet today. He pranced all night and couldn't urinate and then this morning there were little drops of blood across the floor. He didn't want to eat either which is odd for him. So, I called early and took him in first thing. The vet filled 3 large bowls with urine from a catheter he inserted. While the look of relief was certainly on his face, it sure wasn't on mine, or the vets. The vet couldn't feel the large tumor that was originally there, it seemed to have shrunk quite a bit, but, he feels as though the cancer has spread, and along with an infection the urethra has been supressed. If he doesn't urinate on his own by tomorrow, we have a decision to make. Hes sleeping very comfortable right now after several medications and a dextamethasone shot. Theres a small chance that these medications and the shot will relax the muscles and swelling around the urethra so that he can urinate again. This will buy us some time. This is happening much faster then I thought it would, and though there is never a good time for your pet to die, the holidays really magnify it for now and in the future.

Its decision time. I've done all I can. I've catherized him twice daily, he gets 16 pills a day plus liquid meds. One set of pills is 150.00 for 10 days. I take his food and water to him, I take him outside and try to squeeze his bladder so he can urinate, which he will, but for the most part, hes just lying in the bedroom leaking and feeling puny. Could a lot of that be the meds, sure, but will he come out of it, who knows. I've done dex shots two days in a row, I can do one more today, but the others haven't been effective, will todays? I don't think so. Is he in pain, no. Is he miserable, yes. He still has diarrhea but his vomiting has quit with the pepcid. He is simply not Kaiser, and I know what has to be done, can't convince my husband which is making it even harder, and when I sit with him and he looks at me, I get to thinking that even if this is all I have of him, its better then none. But is it.

We had the same thing happen with our cat 4 years ago. He sat there limp and dehydrating. I couldn't do anything else to help him and he was miserable. My husband didn't want to make the call either, so finally I had to make the decision and take him to the vet to have him put down. On one hand I felt sure that I was doing the best thing for him but on the other it was hard to look into his eyes as I handed him over and know that I was making the decision to end his life. :( I cried all the way home, but I knew I did everything I could for him and him lying there limp and sick was just not the best thing for him.

Lots of :hugs: for you as you go through this.

Cindy, my heart goes out to you. I know how hard this is. My aunt was put in the very same position three weeks ago tomorrow. Buddy had renal failure and there was nothing more to be done for him. My aunt agonized even while we were on the way to the vets if she was doing the right thing or not. The dog stopped eating and drinking and just layed there all the time. When we got to the vets office, the vet reassured my aunt that although it is the toughest decision, if she didnt make it, soon he would be in pain and suffering. It is very obvious by reading about your love of your pets that you are a fantastic owner....your Kaiser knows this too. My thoughts and prayers are with you.:hugs:

We did it today, at home. A friend came over and we sent Kaiser to the Rainbow Bridge. To say it wasn't hard is an understatement, but he sort of laid in a comatose state all night. When I can pull myself together, I will post a pic of him enjoying his last Christmas. He gave it one last hurrah playing ball, opening presents with the kids and eating everything in site. His last meal on Wednesday night was pepperoni pizza, compliments of Aunt Tricia. He was the best, but I'm sure everyone says that about their own dogs. Now we can only carry him in our hearts, and we will forever. He will be missed by everyone that knew him.

Not really. Kaiser really WAS the best. He was just one of those dogs that was so perfect and sweet. I'm going to miss him but am so glad that we got to have fun together last week. :(

Oh Cindy, I am so very sorry. Having gone through this too, I know how hard it is for you, the awful feeling that's in the pit of your stomach. How kind of you to keep him at home. I'm sure he was in your arms. Try to remember your wonderful Christmas with him, the years of love and happiness you had and the fact that he is no longer suffering. You are in my thoughts and prayers.:hugs:

I am so sorry for your loss Cindy. He was beautiful! I just went through this with our dog Lady back in June. She was 15. It killed me. I still find myself looking for her in the back yard. :hugs:
