We are looking for a hospice care foster. While Bonbon does act happy and healthy he is not. He has a tumor he size of his heart in his lung.
Treatment is extremely invasive, he would mostly likely lose a lung. The surgery would require to crack his ribs open and remove the tumor and his lung. Then we would be able to start chemo. He has had a few seizure like episodes which causes our vet to believe the cancer has spread to his neurological system thus making his treatment much less likely to save him. Occasionally will regurge water which our vet believes is caused by the tumor pressing against his esophagus. Based on that information we are not perusing treatment since it would not give him a good quality of life and potentially kill him in the process. Our vet agrees that putting him through that would not be in his best interest. He is super happy and loving and we would like to have his time on Earth remain that way.
We plan to re check his xray to see how quickly his tumor is growing. As other symptoms arise we will treat what is possible to help. We are looking for a family that would give him the love he deserves. At this time we are unsure of how long he has. Will you help us find him a place to live out his days? All vetting and medical costs will be covered by CAA.
