My name is Hector, i'am a french bulldog 11 years old living in Greece with my family and father Alexandros.
4 months ago, a small/tiny bulge-ball appeared on the side of my left foot. My father Alexandros spotted it and we go to the Doctor. It was lipoma and we thought it will pass with some cream. But later in 20 days this small ball suddenly became too big and it was scratching me and hurting me a lot.
Suddenly i had no appetite for walk or playing games with my family day/night.
My father took me to the Doctor we run some tests and we told us that i had Cancer - Mast Cell Tumor in my leg
With sadness my family told to our Doctors to do anything it need to stop that cancer. i had a small operation (not surgery), in my leg with a little anesthetic for shrinking the mast cell. i lost a lot of blood.
Finally, when the operation ended Doctor give us some informations and pills, he wrapped the ball around me gauzes and some ANIMEDAZON spray for anti-bacterial protection, and we go home.
i was in very bad condition with no appetite at all.
After 3 days me and my father we went again to our Doctor. He took of my gauzes and we take some blood example from me for hematological , Biochemical and cytological examinations. The results were the following:
i had upper than normal some examinations like (ALP,ALT,etc). Doctor says to us that it was because of the cancer. The operation shrink mast cell but it didnt vanished it. But i'am old (74yold human) and we recommended it was better to do therapy against of total surgery.
So, we started a treatment with pills
the pills are: Tagamet 200mg ( Histamine H2- receptor Antagonists) for shrinking the mast cell
prednisolone 5mg/pill - (corticosteroids) : for fight and shrink mast cell cancer
every day doses 2 pills of cortisone and 1 of Cimetidine every day
The next month we go again for tests:
Some again were upper than normal
ALP is for the liver and it was hight, Doctors says to us to take extra pill DETOXIS 1+1/2 every day with my food to lower the ALP and ALB.
finally arrived home with gauzes
So we started a therapy for fight this Mast cell tumor cancer to me with pills and a lot of examinations/tests every month.
the Next meeting with our Doctors is at 3/2/2021 for again hematological, generall and biochemical
tests. My father took me my pills every 3-4 days. He spend a lot money for therapy and tests for me but he loves me so much and he will do anything. Doctor says to ous that MASIVET 150mg is anticancer and very well going with dogs but it costs a lot to me and my father (MASIVET price is 180 eur)
Right now iam much better, we had me in my bed, we dont walk for a big walk only a short one and i/we hope to fight/shrink my cancer and get well soon. everyone if you can help even a little for my monthly tests and therapy, like we will be so pleased!
I will update in 15-20 days to see me!! after pills and tests!
