Roxy, our 6-year-old Rottie, just had a Sarcoma removed from her hip area today. We caught it while it was small, quarter size bump. Biopsy results due in a week. The vet said it look’s to be cancerous…great. It was one year ago that we lost Rudy, our 7-year-old Australian Shepherd, to Heart Disease. And Ike, our Arabian horse, to Colic.
What’s going on with the health of our pets? I’ve had all kinds of animals my whole life and until the last 10 years they’ve lived to a ripe old age! Makes me wonder about our environment. I can control their food quality, not use any kind of pesticides, filter their water and minimize vaccinations but something is affecting their quality of life. And ours!
