The Cutest Creature Ever Born...

Our family is devastated for the past few days... Our love, our smartest, kindest baby got sick. His name is Bayan, he is a 12-year-old German Sheppard that is still very active and seemingly in good shape. I am sorry to introduce him on this sad note, failing to mention how full of life he has always been and how much joy he has brought to our life, today he was diagnosed with cancer.... I will start a new thread in hopes of finding some answers...

Welcome to the board, Bayan! I hope you get some answers to your questions. And I'd love to see pics of Bayan, too.

While the news of cancer is always difficult , it is no reason to be sad! he is only 12 and has a host of medical alternatives to choose from depending on the type of cancer - which you did not suggest. As you know, cancer is not just one disease so as an oncologist, when someone says someone as cancer, to me that tells me very little. Cancers are different and treatments are also unique.

Research the type of cancer and how dogs go through it, ask your pet oncologist what s/he recommends and always get other opinions. Talk to others and there are several boards about this, some very specific to the type of cancer.

Good luck!!!! I do hope your dog will be fine!

fellow shepherd owner

I too am new to this site.its such an awesome support network.It seems our paths are running in the same direction as i too adore my furry daughter,Tessa ,a german shepherd that is 10 yrs old and only recently diagnosed with bone marrow cancer.They are telling me its manageable,as long as she responds to the medication well (meaning her red cell percentage will decrease to a non threatening level,obviously depending on a few other variables,like her white cell count remaining intact.
i too am celebrating her life and making the absolute most of her every precious moment that she remains with us. Thus far she doing great and isnt suffering.she too is appreciating us, shes allowed inside now.
Please tell me what sort of cancer your baby has ,as the other person has replied there are so many forms with varying outcomes.
We have been so blessed ,with the presence of such beautiful shepherds.

The cat has a problem: 4:00am every morning and she is YEOWLING. Over and Over and Over and Over. She has also lost some weight in the last 2 months even though she eats soft food twice a day. ANY IDEAS

Hello to both of you and welcome.

Bayan I am so sorry to meet you under thses circumstances you will find lots of good advise and support here. GSDS are very dear and close to my heart

bg1seven maybe you should take your cat in for a wellness test, I have a kitty that will be 23 this yr, he has lost weight and talks alot (espically late at night) nothing wrong with him he is just getting old but good to have it checked out incase its something else.
