My Pug Molly was diagnosed with terminal oral cancer on
Hi, My Pug Molly was diagnosed with terminal oral cancer on March 1st, 2017. A tumour that eventually grew to about the size of a ping-pong ball on her right gums. The vet said it was too late too remove it. We were basically told to take her home to die and she may only have 1-3 weeks left. We asked if there was a chance she could pass in her sleep, she said likely not and that we would probably have to put her down to sleep because her symptoms would become too much. We had to press her for info on alternate things we could give her to at least maybe fight the cancer and prolong her life. We came home distraught but determined to fight. I got online and looked at every possible approach to fight her cancer. I prepared her own massive medley of every kind of "cancer-fighting" anti-oxidant dog friendly ingredients imaginable that I mixed in with a natural, organic soft log type food I switched her too and that she loved it. She was eating better and more regular than she ever did. I gave her daily tablets of Circumin, Kelp, Green Tea, Essiac and Tru-Pine. I even researched Cannabis oil for treating dogs with cancer and decided that was route worth taking. We put a small dab on a gloved finger and just rubbed it in around her tumor. Found the right dose to not get her high but to hopefully reap the benefits. Anyway, we gave her a great loving, excitement filled last 2 months. she even had her 13 year birthday bash in April.16 and even a 2 night hotel get away the second last weekend of April. She was doing so good and defying the vet's predictions. It wasn't all good though, she would have short, mild seizures in her sleep that seem to be picking up in frequency. When we started to give the cannabis oil though, they were greatly reduced . They went from a rate of 1 or 2 a day to about 1 every 4 or 5 days. She seemed to be slowing down walking. We thought that it may just be stiffness from her IVDD diagnosed a few years back (that we were told would make her lose use of all limbs but never did) mixed with her age and just coming out of the cold winter and once the sun and warmth hit her it will loosen up her joints like it usually does. Then twice while giving her a tasty treat, she took an uglier larger seizure, where she just flopped over, shook a little, stiffened up, went limp, bled from mouth and then came out of it and started eating again. We were pretty shaken up. We didn't know if she was choking to death the first time and I carefully tried giving her Heimlich. Probably the last thing you should do in a seizure. We figured we won't giver her anything too exciting for a while since it seemed to trigger the ugly larger seizures. She sometimes would sway her head around a little when lying down as if she had Parkinsons.There was also the black tumour discretion that would continuously leak and sometimes mixed with blood. We would lay a fresh incontinent pad under her every day and over night to catch the spill. We would rinse and wash her mouth at least twice daily. She didn't seemed to bothered by the leaks, was more just a nuisance to us but it was ok. She did start to leak a little of the black stuff out her right nostril which I guess would give cause to believe the cancer had spread to her nasal cavity as the vet warned. She did have a few nights of breathing hard right before bed but I would put the fan on and use some eucalyptus oil in the diffuser and she's be silent in a minute. She actually slept more quietly than ever because her tumour had pushed open an airhole in the right side of her mouth, so less snoring,lol. The vet said it could spread too her lungs too, I wasn't convinced of this yet but maybe it did, it's hard to tell with Pugs because the slightest bit of excitement or warmth can make them breathe loud and heavy. Also in the last couple weeks, when putting her out to pee, she would just stand there kind of unsure like before doing her business. We took her down to the park towards the end to walk a bit and she just walked a bit and looked at us and wanted to be picked up. That is a sign they maybe near their end. We had made travel plans in January to go to Maine for 2 nights to see a concert May.3rd and 4th and had arranged for a girl to come stay with Molly, but after her ugly seizure I said there's no way I feel comfortable leaving her with somebody else right now. So I planned to cancel and learned that I may not be refunded. I struggled and stressed for a week about whether to go or not. Even pondered booking somewhere else that would take dogs but was concerned about leaving her in the room or car while we went to the concert. She had no seizure activity for over a week, she seemed to be in no apparent pain, was eating and going outside for the washroom fine. Her tumour looked to even be shrinking. We could see and feel holes in it and small specs of it were appearing in her leakage. So we said to ourselves why don't we just go and we made plans for a caring, friend couple o

I'm back with more Buddy problems but this seems very serious. Last visit Buddy had been put on 5 mg prednisone 2 X daily then tapered for a month dosage. First day was OK in fact he was more his old self (this was just one pill), second day he slowed down considerably and yesterday he was just OK UNTIL last night when he began hyperventilating in the extreme after a bout of very loud cackling in the lungs for a period of time. You could hear him all over the room. He then got up and began pacing and breathing very rapidly. Nothing we did helped and he wouldn't let us do much. after about an hour of this he did ly down and seemed quieter. Thinking he had settled (usually after he lys down for the night his desperation gets more regular, but just got up to find him lying beside my bed still breathing in very rapid short, jerky, shallow breaths. Could this be a reaction to the prednisone, if so what should we do. It's 5 in the morning, Sunday when no Veternarian is available to take him to and if we did ,.... well, we simply do not know how to handle this or if it can be handled. I need your advice.
