    Sorry to rant but Teds results from his blood test are back! its not thyroid so it must be that his cancer is back, hes getting slower day by day and hes really worrying me, its so sad , he wants to go for a walk then when he gets out he is so weak he cant go far,hes only just coming up 11 which is young for my dogs they usually live till at least 14, boy Im dreading the next few weeks or however long he has left, going to ask vet if he can have steroids as a last resort.

    Oh no, am so sorry to hear this, Is the vet sure that there is no other explanation for his deteriation? I wish there was something more helpful that I could say but Please try to enjoy the time that you have left together and I am praying for a miracle for you.

    Hi Pam....so sorry you're going through this, it's really never easy
    to see our loved ones suffer like this, my heart is with you!
    I am not sure the steroids will do much for poor Ted at this stage
    as sad as that seem's! Where does your poor boy have this nasty
    disease? I hope there is something your vet can do to make your old
    boy's day's painfree for the time being!
    Thinking of you & I know you'll do the right thing if it comes to it!
    Lots of love xx

    Pam I'm so sorry that you are going through this, my heart bleeds for you. Although I have never been through it myself I think you'll know to do the right thing should the time come.

    Thinking of you during this difficult time

    Hello Pam,
    I am so sorry to hear about Ted's news, its always upsetting when a pet becomes ill. Is there anything the Vet can do about the cancer or anything they could try to extend his life if the cancer is back or if it has spread?

    I know your others lived to be 14 but 11 years is still a pretty good age for him, and im sure you and Ted have had the best 11 years together.

    Ted will be in my thoughts over the next few weeks and fingers crossed that he will be okay for a while longer.

    And if the worst does occur, make sure you enjoy the time you have left with your special boy.

    Keep posting if it helps. :)

    so sorry to hear about him. As others have said I hope you dont let him linger. I am sure lung cancer becomes painful. I lost my old dog at 12 last year with bone cancer. It spread to her lungs and she became very bad overnight so was put down the next day. It is more difficult when they are gradually getting worse but definitely better to do the deed while there is still some enjoyment in life rather than stretching it out for your sake and making his last days miserable.

    Im so sorry to read your sad news. Just have to try and remember the good times you had with Ted and remember he loves you just as much as you love him and they go to a great place where they can run free

    Its still really hard to loose your babies xxx

    My thoughts are with you xxx
