OK, like some self-centered jerk, I want to say that every loss of a truly beloved dog cuts me in two, because every loss recalls that moment when I knew Wolf was gone. I think we carry these scars, along with the treasured memories, as part of the bargain for love.

You will find your dog, your new dog.

Max was enrolled in the VDI study to test for hemangio and lymphoma. He had a blood draw the day that he died. VDI called either the next day or a couple days after and I told them what had happened with the u/s and that he was no longer with us.

I will update the thread here later, but I got the results back today. The results today in the mail, slightly elevated at 18.5, they say no need to be overly concerned and recommend a retest in 60 days teary

apart from my anger mad in my opinion this test has significant false negatives. So good citizens will submit samples from their dogs and get questionable results.

Simply shocking cry

Considering the extent of the cancer - it was, well, uh, everywhere, this result is pretty damning for the validity of this test.

They also need to get their act together so that owners don't get these letters when they no longer have a dog to retest...

They were informed by phone, but now that I have a copy of the u/s report, I will send that to them.

I was really hoping that this test would be better than it's turning out to be - we need something to help our dogs frown

Something else, isn't it?

If it was just Max and outlier, I would think that it was something in his protocol that affected the test.

I dunno. I am just sad and angry.
