Default Curly Vibes Please

I'm sorry to ask this but if anyone can give some curly vibes to my precious doggy right now, we could really use them.

I'm going to try to get on later tonight to elaborate.

Thank you my curly friends

My little girl is sick

We went to a vet yesterday, one we had never met, as an emergency. He did bloodwork then a single X-ray. He came back out & said she has lung cancer, you need to begin to think about when & how you'll euthanize her.

I sent the X-ray to the vet she used to see, in another city. After he viewed it he called me back & said she needs to see a specialist to confirm this is cancer and not an infection which may be treated. He gave me the number to a specialist in that city. I then called a vet in my city that I have gone to before & they didn't see the X-ray but recommended that she be seen by a specialist & gave me the number to a local one.

Long story short after speaking with both, we've decided to see the specialist in a city 3.5 hours away. In the meantime I need her to stop vomiting & start keeping her food down again. She was in perfect health 3.5-4 weeks ago. 3 weeks ago she had a little cough but acted completely normal. 2 weeks ago she began to refuse her kibble but wanted to eat our food, even going into grocery bags to have some. 1.5 weeks ago she began vomiting and began to eat a little of a new kibble along with some treats. Over the past weekend we were out of town & couldn't care for her as she needed. She ate on Sunday & vomited a lot, likely all weekend.

I'm really hoping that this is a treatable infection & not cancer. If it is cancer I'm hoping we can at least do things to make her comfortable & enjoy another year or so of life. I'm hurting a lot right now. I really want this to not be terminal

Awww, how scary

Can you cook her up some rice & chicken? If she's interested in people food, at least that will give her what she needs. Lots of {{{{Hugs}}}} coming your way!

Absolutely! They are headed your and your pup's way right now.

I'm so sorry your sweetie is ill. I second the chicken and rice suggestion. I really hope she feels better soon, and that the vet's cancer diagnosis was wrong.

I bought chicken breasts, no salt added chicken stock & brown rice for her today. We just gave her a pill to try to stop the vomiting & I'm hoping to get her to take some stock tonight. I have sliced chicken as well that I may try later if she is interested. I plan to cook her some chicken tomorrow, being vegetarian I don't know how But I'm trying everything I can think of to help my little girl.

I'm also crying a lot

Or even heat up a little chicken broth, pour over the kibs, and let it kind of soak in before you give it to her. Even when my old girl was having the worst of the Bad Cancer Days she couldn't resist that.

I froze the broth in ice cube trays, stored it in a freezer bag, and heated up 1 or 2 cubes for meals.

Healthy thoughts for the goldypup...

Thank you all for ideas & vibes. I can't tell you how much I appreciate them.

If the chicken is boneless, I would just boil it in a pot with the rice, don't add much more water then needed for the rice. You can shred it up a bit with a couple of forks to make sure it's not pink.

Giving good vibes!

I third (fourth?) the chicken and rice, I know when I worked at the animal shelter a few years ago, that's what we would give dogs who couldn't eat anything else. We would just cut the chicken into smallish cubes, and boil it, then add to the rice when the rice was done.

I hope it's a treatable infection as well, and not cancer.

Cooking the chicken for your sick poochie is so sweet of you. It'll be easy. Dogs don't need any spices and will never complain that chicken is too bland without seasonings or gravy... They usually eat theirs feathers and all.
