Max has healed from his surgery, but his pathology results came back with “dirty” margins, which means the cancer cells were still present despite the multiple extensive surgeries. We took Max to Dr. Cane at Blue Pearl Veterinary Specialists in Tampa. With Max’s type of cancer, radiation therapy can delay recurrence for years in 85% of cases, so we are trying. He’ll be traveling to Tampa on weekdays for 1 month to be sedated and receive radiation. Hopefully it will help.
He’s in good spirits. It is hard seeing a dog act so normal, not even knowing how sick he really is. The naiveté of dogs is both a blessing and a curse.
