My baby buddy, was diagnosed on Thursday (4/19/2018) with Stage 1 Hemangiosarcoma and has a small tumor. I do not know where else to turn, I can't lose one of my best friends, He was their for me when nobody was and made my worse days, better. My boy deserves a fighting chance to live and I hope somebody can help me make it possible that.
Hemangiosarcoma in dogs is an aggressive, malignant tumor of blood vessel cells. With the exception of the skin form of hemangiosarcoma, a diagnosis of hemangiosarcoma is serious. Because these tumors start in blood vessels, they are frequently filled with blood and when a blood-filled tumor ruptures, it can cause problems with internal or external bleeding.
Hemangiosarcoma can theoretically arise from any tissue where there are blood vessels, which is essentially anywhere in the body, but usually appear in the skin, soft tissue, spleen or liver with the most common site being the spleen. They are highly metastatic and will frequently spread to the brain, but also to the lungs, spleen, heart, kidneys, skeletal muscle and bone. This type of cancer in dogs is typically classified as dermal, subcutaneous or hypodermal, and visceral.
The overall treatment with chemotherapy/radiation is going to cost a estimated $5000
He is such a loving dog, Even during his illness he tries to push on and play with my other pupper, susan. I hope we can make it through this and allow buddy to continue his life. I appreciate him every second, every dog fart hes thrown at me and every bark he has left in him.
I owe buddy so much more and hes helped me overcome my depression and anxiety, If you can donate anything that will help him. As I live Pay check to Paycheck and can't afford the treatment at the cost it currently is at, even if all you have is your thoughts and prayers. I appreciate everyone who makes an effort to help me, help him.
Thank you for listening and your consideration to help save buddy
