As many of you know, Scarlett had a large mast cell tumor removed from her back left leg. The tumor itself ended up being 8mm, with no room for clean margins. The biopsy came back and it is a malignant tumor. Though malignant cancer, it is a low grade tumor so we are very hopeful. Our next step is to bring her to an oncologist to see which steps are necessary to help her out (which may include radiation).
A little back story on our girl. We girl rescued her and noticed a lump on her back leg. She has been abandoned in a house, and left for dead. She came to us emaciated and in poor health, but besides the cancer, she has flourished with love and proper medical attention. So far, Scarlett has had full body xrays to make sure the cancer has not metastasized, extensive blood work, cytology, an ultrasound on her spleen (which has shown to be a little spotty, which is another issue we have to check out), an ultrasound on her bladder (and the walls have been thickened due to improper care and neglect, so she has developed crystals and is on expensive medical food), and the surgery. So far, Scarletts vet bill is over $4,000.00. And we are unsure of the costs to come with oncology. Any amount helps! If you cant donate, please share for our happy little angel!
Scarlett is a spayed female, roughly 55-60 lbs, approx 5 years old, gets along with most other dogs. She loves to be with you and is a laid back couch potato most of the time. An approved adoption application, Home visit and fee of $200 is required!
