Chester fit right into our family from the start. He and his sister Shea (a boxer) have been loving siblings as soon as he came into our home approximately 6 years ago. She was 1 year old And he 1-1/2 years old. Never have there been separation anxiety issues. He eats Royal Canin low fat gastrointestinal food for his sensitive stomach. He loves to chase the laser nightly, bat around a tether ball hanging from our tree and play in the hose and swim. In addition, he also loves going on walks, snuggling, giving hugs and accompanying us everywhere we go. Twice a week he and Shea go to “puppy camp” to socialize and burn some energy. He truly is the sweetest boy ever!!!!
May 2019 he started leaking urine only to find out he had a free floating mass in his abdomin pressing on his bladder. Needless to say we were devastated!! The tumor was hemangiosarcoma and his prognosis was 6-9 months. He had a pretty extensive surgery due to the location but never slowed down or fell ill. We chose not to do any chemotherapy because it did not lenghthen his prognosis. A great year for all of passed and we decided to have him re-evaluate by the specialist. After an exam, bloodwork, chest xray and abdominal ultrasound the cancer has not returned!!! We were exhilitated to say the least!!!!! We will follow up in 6 months time. I want to add that my vet recommended giving Chester I’m Yunnity which is a mushroom supplement known to specifically target hemangiosarcoma from studies done at the University of Pennsylvania. We cannot say difinitively that is what kept the cancer away but I wanted to put it out there.
