Please help with Jacob’s Vet bills

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on February 16, 2009


take a few minutes of your time and read this… Jacob is almost 7
years old and a very good dog, I have had him since he was 6 months
old. He loves everyone and never meets a stranger, but although some
people are scared of him, he doesnt have a mean bone in him, he seems
more human than any other dog i have seen. Less than 1 month ago a
small tumor like come up on his back left leg, it bothered him alittle,
so i took him to the vet and they said it could be 3 things, torn
ligament, bursideus, or cancer. So he was give medicine for a week to
see if the swelling would go down, and it didnt it was just getting
bigger. I just took him back to the vet and they did some xrays and
they next day the dr called me with the results and said it was
Osterosarcoma which is a very aggressive bone cancer, and that it
needed to be amputuated so that it would could not spread to the other
bones, when he told me that it felt like my heart stopped beating,
jacob is my baby boy. That wasnt not what i was wanting to hear, also
we are waiting on the blood work to see if its already in his body, If
it the cancer is already in this body, he will be put on medicine to
comfort him & make it easy for him and let him live his life out
with his family. Either way it goes there will be vet bills, and im
asking for anyone that can help please do. If you have a heart for
animals please think about Jacob, he deserves a chance to have a longer
life, a 3 legged friend is better than no friend at all. If you have
any questions feel free to ask..
