RE: TCC of Urethra?

by NikasMom - December 04 at 7:56 PM

I’m sorry Sarah. I know it came from Oriane and wanted to address to her, but when I went to answer on my phone I couldn’t return to the thread and had forgotten her username. I’m sorry if it came across in a way that I was addressing you. Was not my intention. I addressed you thanking you for letting the forum lady know I needed to be approved. Thanks again and sorry for any confusion.

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!

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!
