Good morning all my followers.
Today is not a good day for us here. It has not been a good day since yesterday. When we woke up yesterday our Golden Roscoe could not put his front right paw down on the ground. We immediately took him to the vet. After hours and x-rays they told us he could have 3 things. 1. Arthritis, but doubting because he has not injured that paw, 2. mersa, he has a scab in that area and that could be it, 3. cancer, because the x-ray shows like a bone growing in that area. He was given antibiotics for the next 2 weeks and pain meds. Then we have to take him back for another set of x-rays. If that piece that shows like a bone has grown they will do a biopsy. And then we wait. Our options if the test come back positive for cancer is to amputate the leg and then have chemo. That is not an option for us. We will not put him through all this. He has been through too much since he was born. He has had parvo and survived and then his rabbies shot gave him a huge allergic reaction that he almost dies. So we are not going to put him through more pain.
My husband and I are devastated. He is only 4 years old. Please pray that all the test come back negative and that we can have him with us longer. We got Roscoe when my youngest left to live with her dad to finish her senior year and attend college over their. He has been my partner and companion all day every day. Please just say a prayer for him.
Here is our big boy:
Thank you for your prayers.
