You may want to check into Care Credit, most Vet clinics have their pamphlets available or you can apply directly on their website.

Bravo!!! Made me cry. With such support from each member, I am sure Logan will make it.

They were amazing. Her tumor was inoperable (or at least the odds were so low we didn't want to put her through surgery). We opted for pallative radiation. Once a week for 5 weeks and she responded really well. Without treatment they estimated that she might have a couple of months. The cancer came back after about 3 months. She made it 10 months and she had a great quality of life until the last month or so. We also saw a holistic vet and I started cooking her food using a Canine Cancer Recipe. She loved it and it made me feel like I was doing something. Caring for her was therapy for me. If you decide to visit a holistic vet, please PM. I still have several supplements that were prescribed for Tessa. I'd be happy to send them to you if your vet prescribes the same meds. They were expensive and I would love it if Logan could use them.

If you do opt for treatment at the Vet School, check out the trails at the NC Museum of Art. Tessa and I spent several mornings exploring the grounds when we needed to wait for her treatment. We both loved it. Much better than a waiting room.

My best wishes for clear answers and a healthy outcome.
