We're going to the Morris Animal Foundation K9 Cancer Walk in Los Gatos this morning. There are 800+ people going and so far, they've raised almost $78,000 for canine cancer research. Our German Shepherd meetup group has raised $2500, and 26 dogs and their owners will be participating in the walk.

Our first dog, Sheba, died of leukemia, which is one of the reasons we signed up for the walk. I'll be thinking of Kayla and all of the other dogs on this board who have been stricken with cancer. I hope that one day there will be much better detection and treatment for this terrible disease.

Thanks. Been sorting through and dealing with things and emotions as we get back into our routine.

Kayla's doing good, getting back to her energy and attention levels. Has not been bothering the sutures. Have to manage her more to keep her in low key mode which is a good thing. Using a bite-not collar instead of the dreaded e-collar. (Two more weeks before we can go out on a hike? ARRGGHH.)

Sutures come out next Tuesday. I talked with a Holistic Vet Center in Oakland today and will set up an appointment probably for Saturday so I'll gather more info to discuss with our regular vet on Tuesday.

That stage where they are better, but not completely, is difficult!! I bet you all are going stir crazy with such a disruption in your activities.

Good luck with the vets, I hope that they are able to provide some positive direction. Some cancers, it's pretty clear what you can do in terms of support, either holisticallly, conventially, or otherwise. Hemangio is such a nasty and unpredictable cancer. Max had vitamin C infusions for a very long time, though we didn't know that he had cancer at the time. Between that and the aggressive doxycycline, I think it slowed the growth. But max was very complicated, he had other chronic illness.

Thank you for this thread, I'm so sorry about Kayla's diagnosis. Lisa pointed me here because Riley will likely have to have his spleen removed very soon. Will find out more later this morning, back to the vet for more ultrasound. Not going to hijack your thread so that's all I'll say other than our best to you, your family and your pretty girl, Kayla.
