I am so sorry about your baby's diagnosis.
Luckily, it seems they caught it fairly early. That is time on your side IMO.
I wish him all the best and lots more time with you!

Chessie

My dog, Chessie, was just diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma. She was completely fine two days ago and we brought her in yesterday because she wouldn't get up at all and eat. They first believed she had an enlarged heart and a collapsed lung but after doing an ultrasound this morning it was apparent it was a tumor on her heart. She is only 6 years old, and has barely lived the life she deserves. I have not stopped crying and cannot imagine not having her in my life. I am 15 and she is my baby. How have you gotten through it? I need advice right now, maybe just to feel a little better...

I'm so sorry that Chessie was diagnosed with Cardiac Hemangiosarcoma. It is so difficult to get such a tragic diagnosis. Dogs don't realize that they have a terminal illness. Just try to live in the moment with her. Hold her and spend as much time as possible with her and take as many pictures as you can. Keeping you both in our thoughts.

I am so sorry about your fur baby, Chessie. It is a lot for a 15 year old to handle. I hope you have support at home. Enjoy the time left with your girl, there is not much else to do.

My boy died of cardiac hemangiosarcoma last March. With a tumor in the heart, there is not much they can do.

My thoughts are with you and your girl, hoping she is still with you.

Exactly two years ago you made this post and today I find myself and the others that love IVY feeling exactly the same way... Any guidance you can yield two years later? If its to painful I understand but its so hard to decide what is right and how to give back all the love She has given to me in her 11 years in only 1, 6 possibly 12 if we are lucky months.

We went through this painful experience with our Pete. His tumor ruptured and that is how we found out. He was disagnosed with hemangiosarcoma. He was 9 years old. Our vet did not see any other tumors but my understanding is this cancer travels through the blood vessels. Unfortunately we lost him 2 weeks later. Everyone is right the vets can't say for sure how long you have. Quality of life is the key AND enjoy each and every minute you have. My thoughts are with you.
