HELP SAVE SANDY
Organized by: lisa laird
Sandy is a 12 year old pitt rott mix. I got her when she was 5 weeks old. She is a beautiful soul. She has been healthy and happy all of her life. She's a step mom to my pekinese pup, whose mother had passed on a few years earlier. She's great with kids, and has so much love to offer anyone. The first week of January, Sandy kept lying on me and drawing close to me. I couldn't figure it out, it was more than usual. On January 7th, I found a lump on her left side. When I found it, she started kissing me like crazy. I had finally found what was bothering her all week. I took her to the vet. They did an ultrasound and told me that it was a tumor, that this would just seed somewhere else in her body and we couldn't get rid of them. It was on her spleen. We saw a second vet, same thing. We saw a 353rd and 4th vet. By this time, another ultrasound was done and it showed two splenic tumors, and 3 on her liver. So, by this time we were told to load her up on pain meds and make her comfortable for what remained of her life. I prayed very hard about this. I was led to get another vet nearby. He saw Sandy last week. He said we needed to do labs, xrays, check her lungs for tumors, and her heart. We've had xrays, showed clear lungs, heart looks good, all labs came back normal with good body functions. Her appetite is the same as well. Sandy vet now needs to do a biopsy of the tumors in the liver, as the spleen can be removed on its own. He now needs to know if the tumors are cancerous or benign. All of the issues we were told earlier on that we would have, has not come to surface. If they are benign, the doctors says he can surgically help her, but the cost is 3000 dollars for surgery. I am concerned with the fee for the biopsy which is 950.00. The biopsy is set for Thursday morning at 7 am., if we raise the funds needed to help her. If you can find it in your heart to help us help her, please please do so. If not, then please say a prayer for Miss Sandy. We cry out for our precious pets because they suffer in silence. Please help if you can.
