She and Jude are pals, of course, so like football players beat up on the turf yet determined to go for one more pass…it’s clear as a bell what they feel: 'get out of my way’…’I’m not done yet’… and they speed along (well that is an overstatement) but do charge and get going faster than you would imagine!
While we have caught it before it got too large, it’s in the worst spot right at the opening of the bladder so eventually will grow to cause extreme pain when urinating... it is not operable. We had a BRAF bladder test done and she has Transitional Cell Carcinoma which is aggressive and fast acting to not only create urination problems but also move into the lungs. We are pursuing meds to gain some time by shrinking the mass until a quality of life decision must be made.
Sanctuary Resident REO has been with us over a year, turning 13 in our care! She is making the most of her time, “racing” around with her ’side-winder’ gait as she barks at the other rescues and birds and anything else that needs some supervision... she is a hoot!
REO arrived with significant orthopedic pain... xrays confirmed severe arthritis in her back and back legs though no dysplasia. She often stands with her back left leg under her belly, creating a tri-pod support enabling her to then use her front legs to move forward. The assumption is some trauma in her history, it’s possible she was grazed by a car. REO is on daily pain medication and doing very well. It’s still hard to watch her get herself up from laying down but once she’s up, she knows how to move to minimize discomfort.
