A Real Star
This is Izzy, a 4 year old cocker spaniel who first came to us in February 2010 with bad diarrhoea.
She didn’t respond to normal treatment and we became aware of a lump growing in her abdomen. We were becoming very worried at this stage and performed an operation to take biopsies of the lump before things go any worse. Unfortunately 6 days later our worst fears were realised when the Lab confirmed Izzy was suffering from intestinal lymphoma - a life threatening cancer.
However Izzy`s owners didn’t give up and we started chemothearpy immediately. Izzy has never looked back from the start of treatment. The lump quickly became unpalpable and the diarrhoea cleared up and Izzy soon returned to her normal happy self.
Izzy will have to have a chemotherapy injection every 14 days and stay on tablets for life, but she never complains and the injections are made bearable by her love of lots of treats!
A real star patient!!
