I am in complete astonishment. My sweet, sweet girl was just diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma on her trachea. She is 13 years old. While this may sound old, she has been strictly indoors her entire life.
Last week, I took her to the vet for "coughing" that had been going on for about 3 weeks. Honestly, I thought it was a hairball issue, as she has allergies, and often over grooms. Low and behold, the vet feels a mass in her neck area near her voice box. We immediately take an x-ray and take a biopsy of the tumor. It's a very aggressive, fast growing cancer. I can't believe this. I never ever thought this could happen to her. The location makes it impossible to remove, and it isn't conducive to chemotherapy. Ou only options are some Eastern alternative therapies. We will be supplementing DHA (fish oil), which is suppose to help with it spread, and MGN3 to increase her white blood cells 100 fold, which kill cancer cells. AND, the big, new option is, Neoplasene. It is extracted from bloodroot extract. The kicker is this known to kill topical forms of cancer and is amazing! She will be getting the oral form of it. I am praying for a miracle! I will keep you all posted on her progress.
She is the best cat, and I refer to her as my "dog-cat" because she is very loving, and follows you everywhere. She has never lifted tooth or nail to anyone, and is a complete love.
