I just talked with my vet about an hour ago and she had some unsettling news. Yesterday I took Tequila in for a checkup. The vet said she looked healthy (other than needing to shed some weight), but today the blood work shows another story. One of the levels is extremely elevated, and although there are a few different conditions it could point to, the one that makes the most sense is cancer. (I hate that word!)
The vet’s first step is to repeat the blood test and hope that somehow the results were wrong. If it comes back with the same results Tequila’s in for more blood work, x-rays, and who knows what else. At this point I’m just hoping the repeat blood work will be normal.
We’re off to see the vet again, for the second day in a row.
I hate cancer! And even the possibility of cancer absolutely SUCKS!
