Hi everyone, I'm not sure if you remember my post about Junior. I had
taken him to a new vet who discovered that Junior had an enlarged
spleen. Bloodwork was taken and came back normal. The vet wanted to
Junior a shot that he felt would help. Since then I have been playing
phone tag with the vet. I was to set up an appt and wanted to find out
what the shot was for. I did set up an appt and was told by the
receptionist that it was a cortisone shot. Two days later I came home to
a message that the appt was cancelled and I would have to reschedule.
was never able to reach the vet again. As a result of this I was also
not able to get the bloodwork results for Dr. Williams. Boy do I wish I
had been able to do that !!! Well, long story short I had to put Junior
to sleep today. He had two large tumors in his spleen, had lost a lot of
weight and was not eating anymore. Because of his overall condition I
felt it best to let him rest. I also put my Belle to sleep today since
she was suffering from a huge adrenal tumor which was wrapped
around the
vena cava. She was sleeping all the time and crying in her sleep. It has
not been a good day. Mary, Tinker and
