A Vet’s Pet Gets Sick – After the initial diagnosis

 

This is what happens when you diagnose a pet with lymphoma:

 

  • The very next day he seems to be lagging behind on his walk.
  • The very next day he seems to be eating more slowly.
  • He gets way more attention from everyone in the family.
  • He gets more treats and develops diarrhea.
  • Every time he coughs it is very concerning.
  • He hears how good he is all day long.
  • His bed doesn’t seem cushy enough.
  • He needs his water refreshed more than once daily.
  • The other dog gets in trouble for playing too rough and too much.
  • He gets checked on in the middle of the night.
  • He is excused from a much needed bath because he doesn’t like them and is a bit smelly for his introduction to the oncologist.
