PRAYERS……please!!!!!!!  This isn’t about Zoe or Hepatocutaneous 

our VERY large and previously healthy Weimaraner was just diagnosed today with a huge splenic tumor and chances look good that it’s cancer, please pray with me for a miracle for him that it’s benign!!!!

      He made it through fine….he had LOTS of weirdness going on in his abdomen, BUT no OVERT signs of cancer……PRAISE GOD!!!! We will know for sure when we get the path report back next week,
      New prayer request!!! The surgeon said that there were 2 weird red masses. That’s the only thing that looked like it could be cancer—-not a normal presentation for cancer, but he said it could be, I believe GOD has healed him, please stand in prayer with me that pathology shows that he is cancer free!!!!

        Hello Jamie, I realize your post about Hank is a couple years old, but I’m wondering if you could share his story. MY little Staffordshire Terrier has been diagnosed with cancer of the spleen just last week. Wondering what advice you might be able to offer us. She is 13 yrs. old.

          Sue, I am so very sorry….I’m just now seeing your comment. Would love to help any way I can! We have a Facebook page called Hemangiosarcoma Diet & Supplement Protocols for dogs – A Holistic Approach. If you’d like to join us there, there is a wealth of information on our site! I certainly hope it’s not hemangiosarcoma!!

    Hey Jamie – Came on just to see if there were any updates on Zoe and read about your Hank. I sure hope and pray there aren’t any signs of cancer, you sure don’t need another sick dog to deal with. My daughter moved back home and she has the same breed of dog. Her’s is on the small size and a real sweetheart. I actually think her being here is helping Shelby. You know how they hate for another dog to get their food, so she eats it up in a hurry. 🙂 She’s getting worse unfortunately. Her paw pads are raw again so the vet is giving us some antibiotic to try and we’ll go from there. If they don’t improve then we know it’s time to say good-bye. Can’t stand to see her this way much longer. Prayers for both of us.

      Mona, I’m so sorry to hear that!! How often does she get some form of amino acids (stock or ProMod, etc)? I appreciate your thoughts about Hank, he is a sweetie and I really don’t want anything to happen to him, so we are just continuing to pray that it is not cancer and that he will have a long and healthy life! God gave him to us and we are trusting HIS plan.

      Hi Betty, we do chicken stock, collagen supplements (capsule form) and ProMod. It seems the frequency of the collagen is important. Zoe gets it about every 5 hours, except while she is sleeping at night.

        Mitzi is a 12 year old Havanese. I think she has had HS for some time but it wasn’t until May that her vet did scrapings and biopsies of her skin and feet that she was diagnosed with hepatocutaneous Syndrome. I chose not to have the infusions for three reasons.
        Mitzi is mostly cleared up skin wise but a few areas keep cropping up. Her feet are much better but not well. As long as I keep her feet from drying out and socks on she doesn’t act like they hurt. From the time she gets up until early afternoon she sleeps in her daytime bed. She doesn’t want to eat until 1 or 2 in the afternoon. I did a lot of research but this site has been the most informative and I got most everything that was recommended. I have the vitamins and supplements and home cooked food but it is hard for me to get as much down her as I would like. Her appetite is not real good lately. I think it is the sores on the sides of her mouth as she eats real slow now. I don’t know what to do to get them better. I am retired so do spend a lot of time with her and could keep her on food, supplement and vitamin schedule if she would cooperate.
        Thank you Jamie for giving me hope that I can keep my baby longer than the 3 to 6 months I was told by some.

          Betty, thanks so much for telling us about your baby!! Have you tried ProMod? It seems to make such a difference for Zoe. Kristin introduced us to it and I know others have commented that they have used it with good success, as well

    I am praying for both your dogs. Having one sick is bad but then two that is really tough. Prayers are coming.

        When will you get the report back? Praying it is good news. That Zoe is such a trooper. You have done a super job with her. Hopefully this is just another crisis that will pass.

            Hi Jamie, I have been praying and waiting to see how Zoe is doing or if we all have to say goodbye to her. This is sad. I still grieve over our boxer we said goodbye to in 2006.She required a lot of care for 5 years. That makes us closer than ever. Now we again have two elderly pups. I talked about our babies so you would know my heart is with you now.
