Bad news never comes alone. We have two lovely senior Shelties, Ichigo who's 14 and Tarou who's 12.
Tarou was recently found to have cancer on his right foreleg and a newer tumour above his left elbow. The biopsy for his right leg came back as either soft tissue sarcoma, carcinoma, or plasma cell tumour. From what we know, the cancer on his right leg is quite aggressive. But we have since decided not to amputate his leg and we will try to manage his cancer and hopefully give him a good quality of life before his time is up.
Ichigo, our feisty little old man, suddenly took a turn for the worse after his 14th birthday on 20 Sep. We found out that he has kidney disease and pancreatitis. His kidney levels are slowly deteriorating and we will have to strictly manage his diet and water intake. We'll also have to bring him back to our vet to regularly check on his kidney levels. The cost of each visit is in the 100s and I don't know how long we will have to do this for.
We definitely were not expecting both to require critical and urgent medical care at the same time and it has been quite a huge blow to us mentally and financially. We have been trying to keep expenses low, especially for medical equipment and supplements. We try to source for cheaper alternatives without compromising quality. All funds received will go towards their medical bills. Please head over to the updates section for more information on their situations.

我们有两只可爱的老狗，14 岁的 Ichigo 和 12 岁的 Tarou。最近发现 Tarou 的右前腿患有癌症，很可能不得不截肢。癌症似乎具有侵袭性，我们必须尽快为他动手术。我们活泼的小老头 Ichigo 在 9 月 20 日 14 岁生日后突然病情恶化。我们发现他患有肾病和胰腺炎，目前因并发症住院。
结果，我们不得不比预期更多的次数去看兽医。医疗费用正在增加。请不要觉得有义务捐赠。如果您不喜欢通过本网站捐款，您可以 PayNow 我们 (97602686)。
