Hi, she is actually great right now which is why this is so confusing. I absolutely will not let her suffer, but her appetite is great, she goes on walks, she walks up and down the stairs and jumps up and off the couch. She goes into the pantry several times a day so she can have a cookie, she picks up her ball daily to play, etc. She barks at my 15 1/2 male Boston Terrier (I have two dogs) and she barks at other dogs. I am sure if she does have TCC that this is temporary but just noting she is not suffering right now outside of the squatting issues and the blood in urine. She doesn't seem to be in any pain.

That is great. I am glad. I hope she continues like this so you can share a wonderful Christmas with her and begin the new year together.  I wanted my girl and I to have one last Christmas together, but it was not to be.  Enjoy your time together.

Thank you.  It has been more than two years since she passed, but I still think of her every single day.

Hi everyone. Sorry to reply to the last post on this thread. . Seem to be the only way for me to post. I am new to this forum. My girl Nika, 10year old Chocolate Lab, has recently been diagnosed with TCC. Inoperable. We started Piroxicam and will be starting chemo next week. I live in Alaska and treatments available to us are very limited. I read a lot about laser ablation and I think it seems like a good idea in Nikas case to buy more timeto make the chemo and Piroxicam work. I have been trying to find vets that actually do laser ablation and are semi close to me. I’m looking at a Seattle first of course. I see there is a vet in NJ as well as TX. Does any of you wonderful people know of any vets that do laser ablation along the West Coast? WA, OR or CA? Anything closer than TX would be great as I’m trying to keep travel time for my girl as short as possible. I did read a good part of the super long thread about TCC and found a lot of info there but nothing closer than TX. Internet searches seem to come up with the same vets over and over again. Any info that could help me would be super appreciated! Best of luck to all of you and your pups!

Hi there. Are you on Facebook? There is a large dog transitional cell carcinoma group there. I have seen others ask about laser ablation. Let me know if you are able to join otherwise I can ask the group for you.

I sent a message to the admin person, Debbie. It can take her a couple of days to approve which feels like a lifetime to some. Hopefully she approves it today. It’s such a great group and lots of support. I’m sarah Yates, so once you post, I’ll reply there. If you hear nothing in a couple of days, let me know. Thanks

Thank you Sarah, I appreciate it. I do not feel like I am extending “her suffering” as she isn’t in any pain as of yet and happy as can be. My other dog Ruby went they chemo at age 3 and to be honest it didn’t affect her much at all. Her cancer was supposed to spread with a 50% Chance and she is now 11 years old. If Nika were to ever suffer and if chemo makes her feel crappy I will reconsider. I do believe it’s in Nikas and Ruby’s best interest to extend Nikas life as much as we can. My girls are pretty much joined at the hip. Thank you very much for your concerns, I totally understand your side of it and I’ll be the last person to prolong any suffering. Thank you tho!
