I don’t ask very often, but today I decided I wanted to visit with you about a special doggie gal that is in need of prayers. Cara is a 3 year old Boxer Mix female, and is with us at 12 Hills Dog Rescue. Her story is the same as many others. She had puppies at a young age, and wasn’t given the proper care and nutrition needed. She was brought here to the rescue and we adopted her to a young college couple. She developed a sore on her back side and after taking her to a nearby Vet, they knew that she needed more care than they could provide.
This same very special Vet performed surgery and removed a very large “Mast Tumor.” We found out a week later that the tumor was malignant stage 3. So, we brought her home and gave her the medication that would help her through the days ahead. Our thoughts were to make her as comfortable and happy as we could in the short time she had left. We noticed that the tumor had spread, but Cara seems to be healthy, happy and have a good appetite. Today she was scheduled back to the Vet Clinic to have her stitches removed and visit more about her prognosis. After some discussion we made the decision to give surgery one more try, and continue with some medication and some holistic treatment. Cara will have surgery to remove the 2 remaining tumors on Monday the 31st.
