Okay, so they do think it is cancer but has not spread. They are wanting to remove his lymph nodes at $1,400.
I feel like an awful person! I am hating and resenting this dog. I love him so much and he has brought so much joy to our lives but I am really starting to resent him. He is all ove 2 1/2 years old and we are on our fourth $1,500 surgery and that does not include the mange treatment, antibiotics for infections, shots and other stuff. We live barely paycheck to paycheck. We can't afford this! I know we can come up with the money and our vet will take payments but come on, I can't help but to wonder what $1500 surgery is he going to need in six months because there WILL be another surgery. I have never in my life seen a dog who has had the issues this dog has had. Even with the surgeries, infections and mange he has never been in pain except for the 3 months with the eye pressure build up. He has had a wonderful life and every thing a dog could dream of. I just can't take this anymore.
I tried to keep my feelings to myself because I know it is tearing my husband up inside but I exploded, which now makes my husband feel so much worse. He has left to go and pick scooby up from the vet and is going to talk to him and ask for his advice. I feel like the lowest of the low and like pure scum. We adopted this dog and promised to always take care of him no matter what, but I never ever dreamt that we would drop almost $5000 on him and medical treatment in 2 1/2 years! This is killing me. They are sending him home with a stronger antibiotic (after we spent $300 last week on exams, tests and 3 antibiotics for him that did NOTHING). So I can't wait to see how much this bill is going to be for the tests they ran today and this new thing of antibiotics.
