It is with a heavy heart that I tell you Rusty has been diagnosed with Renal Carcinoma (Kidney Cancer). He's had some urinary issues that weren't being resolved. After a visit to a specialist and several tests he was diagnosed today. Unfortunately, it has spread to his lungs. He doesn't seem to notice he is sick. He is eating, playing, being his normal self. For that we are grateful. We see the oncologist tomorrow to see how we can keep him comfortable. We will do everything we can for HIM. Please pray for Rusty and pray that we make the right decisions.

OMG, I am so sorry, Patti! :( I know how heartbroken you must be to have received this diagnosis for him. Please give Rusty a hug and kiss from me...he has always been one of my favorite bassets! I know you will do whatever is right for your boy. Keeping you all in my thoughts.

I'm so sorry to hear this horrible news! It's so unfair that this has to happen. I'm sending much love, prayers and comforting thoughts your way while you deal with this.

Too many beloved hounds are leaving too soon. :mad:

My Molly was just recently diagnosed with Lymphoma. I understand the pain. I can also relate to the hounds not knowing they are sick. I count this is as a blessing in disguise although a very bittersweet one. Good energy to your Rusty.

I am so sorry to hear about both Rusty and Molly, drool and hugs sending your way.

My first Basset Sweet Pea got mammary cancer then it moved to her lungs. Good luck to you.
