We took my little brothers whippet to the vet today, she has sores, but the vet sent us home with some antibiotics and some bad news.
My brothers ancient whippet Kia has skin cancers.
He could get them cut out, but they would grow back and her skin is not good enough to keep it up for long. He may get another 10 months to a year out of her but she will be to the vet every few weeks and in to much pain for it to be worth it.
I feel so sorry for him, this dog was his first and only pet and has been with him for the better part of his life. He has known her since she was in her mothers belly forcrynoutloud! and he is going to have to make the most difficult decission.
For now though she isnt in pain. She is happy and running around, as much as an old dog runs, so they have time.
Thanx guys I just needed to vent to someone.
