Bailey

1st August 2016

Bailey is a 5 year old Jack Russell Terrier. He was first seen beck in March 2015 feeling under the weather and not eating. On exam, all his lymph nodes were hugely enlarged. Further tests diagnosed him with lymphoma, which is a cancer of the lymph tissue. He immediately began on triple therapy chemo which involved taking two different medications and having a weekly intravenous injection at the surgery. By mid April 2015, he was doing really well- he had started eating and his lymph nodes had returned to a normal size. Dogs generally tolerate chemotherapy very well, and we see very  few of the side effects associated with chemotherapy in people.

Bailey has had a few ups and downs but due to the love, care and perseverence of his owner, he is currently leading a normal life and in remission almost 18 months post diagnosis. He is still a regular visitor to the surgery and all the staff know him well. He is never any trouble for his injections which he now only has every 4-5 weeks!
