7 tiny wire stitches . :-( at 11 years old. my 7/11 dog....

This is Oliver. His Mother died of liver cancer in the fall of 2008. Mama Cinder came here March 22, 2001 very pregnant. I found homes for three of her children and kept two. Oliver and Moses. Mama Cinder showed few signs of illness, but when the signs became very apparent., it was to late.

I must also remember Mama Cat. She came here in the fall of 1998. She raised all 4 of her children - who are now all 17 years old. ( All of the other litters she had prior - it seems never had a chance. They must have all passed away. She needed help and came to me for help. Sadly she passed away in Sept 19, 2005. I had found a small breast tumor and it was removed, but about 5 months later she passed away as I think it had spread.

I have always remembered the pain Mama Cat endured. Oliver and Moses have both had small bumps removed as I found them. Moses has had one removed 2 years ago. Oliver had one removed last year. All were negative for cancer. This spring I took Oliver in for a routine check. All was fine ~ I thought. For some unknown reason I looked in Oliver's mouth 2 days after that visit. I took him back the next day and they removed a medium sized tumor from the roof of his mouth. + cancer. That was in March 2012. When I took him in for another appointment ( with another MD in the group) a few days ago, another small bump ? or tumor was felt to the side of his left eye. It was removed the next day. This is a picture I took of Oliver the day he came home after his last surgery. I do not have the results of the last tumor. All I can do is pray.

This is the reason I posted this picture. Vets do not always check YOUR pet that well. ( I do not know why the Vet could not see the tumor in Oliver's mouth ~ the only reason I can know is he did not LOOK in Oliver's mouth. I do not know if it spread. Check your Dogs MOUTH. Check also for breast tumors, tumors or bumps in the skin. Check your Kitty too for breast tumors. Oliver's Mother- RIP- did not tell me of her pain. That's just how pets are. Its up to us to see changes in them. Its up to us !!!

Oliver is feeling better now TG.. He will have his sutures wire stitches removed next week. I just learned my next doors neighbor was put to sleep because he had a huge tumor in his mouth and it was never noticed. THEIR HEALTH COULD DEPEND ON YOU.

In Memory of Mama Dog Cinder and Mama Cat.

Picture Sept 28, 2012 ~ Thank you JanElle for Nominating this for picture of the week. October 4th, 2012 Oliver THANKS YOU TOO.

Its also SO important to have your Dog checked for heart worms. That to is a painful death. I lost a dog years ago from this condition as it was a fairly new found condition

and the Vets did not regularly check dogs for them.

UPDATE : October 25, 2012 The official report is yet to be printed, but it looks as though this (the second tumor to be removed) was negative for cancer. I am beyond pleased to learn this ne

    Amazing photo and sad story... I lost my labrador 5 years ago due to lymphoma, after 8 months of chemotherapy. I think I understand your feeling....

    Susan, It mystifys me as to just WHY I looked in Oliver's mouth. The only answer I know - is GOD spoke and for once I listened.

    That's hard to see a beloved pet contact these diseases but you are doing a remarkable job in keeping your pets healthy and you are a step ahead in doing everything you can.

    Our pets are like children and do need regular checkups. There are sorry vets out there too so if you do not like your vet, get another one. I am praying for your Oliver. You are an animal Angel.

    You have given some very valuable information for pet owners who are not so in tune with their pets care. Oliver is a beautiful dog and I hope he will continue to be healthy.
