2nd Chemo treatment done….

Filed under Uncategorized

Today Hunter had his 2nd chemotherapy treatment.  It went very well.  Time is just flying by now!

His blood work still looks good and he is a very happy, bouncy and strong dog.  I brought him into the clinic in his Super Dog costume, and the staff just loved it!  He’s up 3 lbs. from his last visit one week ago.  Too many treats??  No, couldn’t be that at all.

Hunter got his picture taken with Whitney, his oncology nurse.  He always searches her pockets for treats!

For some reason he is always thrilled to come into the clinic.  He is truly happy there.  But, he’s always loved going to the vet.

The best news of the day was finding out that the 3 small pea-sized lumps we noticed recently on his lower chest were lipomas and nothing to worry about.  Whew!  Now we are working on a plan for his supplements to keep his immune system strong.   He’s been on Milk Thistle and we will continue with that through his chemo treatments.  And with that he’s been on an herb script for his immune system, but many clinic patients and fellow tripawds have had good luck with K9 Immunity Plus, so I ordered some today.

Now we get a 3 week “vacation” from the clinic until his next chemotherapy appointment on July 26th…. 1 day before Hunter’s 9th Birthday.

    hunter, you are indeed a superman!! glad you are doing so well with your chemo – s.b.sam and fel mel said there’s no way you could be getting too many treats, NO WAY AT ALL!!! they think with all the hopping, you are just exchanging fat for muscle, and we all know muscle weighs more…..

    Hunter looks great! That’s Harley’s clinic also — maybe we’ll run into each other there some time. Harley would be the golden who jumps up and down and barks while he’s there. (He doesn’t need a costume!)

    Hee hee. It couldn’t possibly be the treats!
    I would never have thought that a big dog could carry off wearing a costume but that just looks fantastic on Hunter. As long as he doesn’t try and leap off any tall buildings or stairs or …..
    Glad things are going along well for you.

    He looks PAWESOME in his costume!
    And he looks like such a happy boy at his appointment. Abby was the same – she loved going to her appointments. Everyone would spoil her and give her lots of cookies!
    Glad he’s doing well,
