Our Bo went into the emergency clinic saturday because he couldn't stop throwing up. At first they x-rayed him and said he had a foreign body in the GI track. They had to keep him and medicate him in hopes that he would pass it.

They called this morning to inform us that they need to do an ultrasound because they no longer believe he ate something. He hasn't passed whatever is causing the blockage, and they fear it could be a tumor. It could also be a GI problem, but that's not the impression they are giving us. I'm completely heart broken. We wont know until later today what is going on.

Does anyone have any experience treating or caring for their dog with cancer? Obviously I know it's only going to end one way. Just curious if anyone can offer any advice. I've lucky that all of my previous pets lived to old age. This is going to hurt.

Beauregard made it! We were prepared to loose him today, and all signs pointed to that. After a two hour surgery the doc removed golf ball size tumor blocking his intestine. They think they got it all out and will biopsy it, though she said it didn't appear to have spread. Now it's a matter of healing up.

We just called to check on him and the vet tech told us he would not eat the dog food, but she ended up feeding him her chicken that she brought for dinner and he scarfed it up. That's my Beagle. One more good night and Bo comes home.

Bo comes home today. I pick him up after work. A hefty vet bill, but well worth getting my shadow back. He is one tough beagle. Thank you everyone for your words of encouragement.

My wife and I didn't think we'd ever bring him home again.

Bo is home and doing great. He made it to monday which was the day he needed to hit without complications. He being a crazy, unruly little beagle, which puts a smile on my face. The swelling in his belly seemed to disappear over the last two days. He wants to play all the time, and we can't let him yet.

The vet is confident that they got it all out, but also confident that the tumor was malignant. The results aren't in yet, but that was thier gut feeling. We have to pray now that it doesn't reoccur.

The little guy cheated death though, and I am sooooo happy to have the pain in butt back!
