Thank you for your concern
I have been really busy with work and have not really had any answer from the vets until now. I`ll try and keep it brief.
Ok, so she finally had the ultrasound on tuesday and a repeat blood test for her liver. I don`t remember which was which but one level is normal again and the other is now off the chart. The ultrasound showed the bottom of her liver has a very holey appearance but no obvious tumour. The vet didn`t want to do needle biopsy incase they were blood vessels and she bled.
They looked at her bowel also. This showed up as being very thickened. She said it is more than likely bowel cancer.
So she said they could give her palliative care, open her up and take biopsies or chemo.
I`ve opted for palliative care. Maisie has had problems since I got her and as she has multiple things going on and is an old lady now, I think it would be unfair to put her through invasive procedures. This is what I decided when I got her and I have thought it through and still think it is right for her.
Soooo, she is now on steroids again and will stay on them. Her appetite is so good now she pesters me all through the night for food
that is the effect of the steroids but at least she is eating again. They did a little chart and her weight has been slowly dropping off since July last year.
I`m going to post some pics in a mo. Her nakey belly is so cute
She`s going to be an even more pampered princess now
