A cancer update...

An unfortunate update on one of our "bloggers"




In October 28, 2014 our Boston Terrier mix was diagnosed with lymphoma.  We went in for yearly blood work and ended up coming back on the office's surgery day to have a biopsy done (photo is at the very end of the stitches if anyone is interested, it's not that gory and trust me, I do NOT do blood or anything gory).  The biopsy results were supposed to take 10-14 days, we had the results back in less than a week and it was a confirmed diagnosis of lymphoma.  We immediately set up an appointment with the specialist and began chemotherapy that day.  Fast forward to May 2015 we made it through chemo every week or every other week to achieve a diagnosis of the cancer being in remission.

February 6, 2016 we received the unfortunate diagnosis via needle aspiration that the lymphoma was back.  I already knew it was back, I just knew.  We have already begun chemo and we will try and update weekly with how everything is going and hopefully end with a blog post that he is in remission.


We do have pet insurance through Healthy Paws.  They were rated the best Pet Insurance in 2014, 2015, and 2016.  They have a phone app so all you have to do is snap a picture of the invoice from your veterinary visit and they take it from there.  It's simple and easy to use.  The process the claim and we get a check in the mail.   We have an annual deductible of $250 and unlimited lifetime benefits so no cap on how much they will pay out.   Feel free to check out Healthy Paws and get a quote by heading over here.
