From Sugar’s mom, Rosalyn
Sugar was having a great time celebrating Christmas and unaware her mouth was bleeding. We were very concerned on the cause for the bleeding. At Blue Pearl Vet, Sugar was taken into the exam room and came out with a wagging tail. The prognosis from the ER Vet was, “Sugar has a mass on the right side of her tongue. At her age and breed, it is a cancerous tumor (most likely, cancerous).“
10 weeks ago, Sugar had her annual exam/tests and everything was good.
It was recommended for Sugar to gain more weight, which she has.
Sugar also did not exhibit any discomfort.
Sugar’s regular Vet/Surgeon confirmed the prognosis. We were immediately educated and were given options for treatments. We are faced to make a very hard decision.
Sugar’s Vet provided us very comforting words.
We decide to hold off on making a decision until after the new year.
We are sad but staying strong and positive. We are keeping Sugar’s days as normal as possible. Sugar is on a soft food diet (which she enjoys very much) to avoid any trauma to the mass. Sugar has maintained her Playful Happy Golden Self.
Thank you for the Good Thoughts and Prayers.
