Forgot to answer Bigboy's other questions: No chip and the vet thinks he's around 7-8 years old.

Wow no stops for his medical! Everything but ultrasound! Glad to hear you're willing to do that for a stray. If he's eight years old and very friendly he doesn't sound too much like a stray to me, though, especially since he didn't look too skinny in the pictures. I don't know if it's possible to find his real owner(s) though.

Wow, what a wonderful thing to do for him. I can only echo what JGLI said. I'm sure Biggie is appreciating everything you are doing for him. The difference in the pictures is lovely to see

Wishing him a very happy life with you all.

Had to do a family picture with Biggie. So far he's still getting better each day. Tomorrow we start weaning off of the appetite stimulants, so will be keeping our fingers crossed.

That came out fantastic!!! And you know, Biggie looks like he fits in perfectly with Dunny and Annie. I'm so glad to hear he is doing better and hope that the appetite stimulant isnt needed much longer.

It sounds like Biggie is very lucky to have found you. I praise you for taking him in, how very kind. As for further test, save in the case where there is good reason to believe there is a viable treatment, at end of life going to far with various tests can be an effort in futility and present unreasonable expenses; I'd be inclined not to get an ultrasound as well, and just try to tend symptoms and keep him comfortable. My lab died of cancer last year, and in the end year that's pretty much what I did with her.

This is one of the reasons I highly recommend pet insurance. I have been through cancer three times with my dogs (one breast cancer, one TCC, one OSA) and the costs of treatment are greatly mitigated with good pet insurance. My dogs with TCC and OSA were able to enjoy a wonderful quality of life and lived well beyond the dire prognosis. The dog I had that developed breast cancer was 16 when it developed and that many years ago, treatments were not anywhere near as effective are they are now. In many cases, protocols for canine cancers are extremely similar to those used with humans.
