Update – Tiberius
Precious Pit Bull who was severely neglected- his whole leg up to the hip was amputated to remove the large tumor seen below . He also had an additional tumor removed and a suspicious lymph node .
Sadly , all pathology came back as a high grade 2 mast cell . This includes the lymph node . If only we could have gotten to him sooner … The range to grade these tumors is 1 to 3 . So with a high 2 , we will take him this Tuesday to see Dr. Scott Rizzo , to talk about chemo therapy. We will discuss all options . No words can describe how sweet Tiberius is . We love him so much ! Our thanks to his fosters Debbe and John Pinkerton who are spoiling this Angel every day !
New Case – Tiberius
Male Terrier with huge tumor on back right leg . This is very painful for him .
This sweet boy was in a drop box at the Montgomery County Shelter . Thanks to Holly Cichelli , Cheryl Noggle , Rick Jervis ,and our wonderful transporter Brenda Gabbert !
Tiberius ( which is Capt. James T. Kirk’s middle name on Star Trek ) is a sweet boy
and did not deserve to be neglected like this . We will be doing several tests and stabilizing him over the weekend . He will be on sufficient pain meds . Surgery most likely will be performed on Monday . We are unsure at this point if we can save the leg .
We took Tiberius without a foster home ready for him . We do not have a facility, which is a dream we hope for soon . Please understand we have very few fosters available for larger dogs .
