It's Sissy's last day of cancer treatment (3 of 3 days in a row). The tumor has already decreased from the size of a large gumball out of a Quarter machine to about a peanut M&M. What a miracle stereotactic radiosurgery is. The side effects have been minimal so far. I want to give a big shout to the staff at Arizona Veterinary Oncology. Their staff from front to back made me feel in incredible hands. Dr Eric Boshoven is great at making u feel at ease and explaining the process to not leave you guessing or frustrated. Communication has been the key for every step.
Sam is on his way to get his orthoscope diagnosis in Mexico City. He is originally from Mesa, Arizona and has lived the last 3 years in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. He started snoring louder and sneezing more often. When he started bleeding from sneezing we looked into follow-up with vets here in Cabo. No vet in the whole Baja, Mexico had an orthoscope to see what an X-ray could not identify.
We flew him to Mexico City to find out he had a massive growing tumor. The only treatment for him at 8 yrs old was radiosurgery. The vet in Mexico City recommended Arizona Veterinary Oncology because it was one of four in the USA that had this treatment. So when he returned from Mexico City we flew to San Diego through Alaska Airlines, which was the only one that flew dogs of this size. I didn't want to change to another plane and put him through more trauma so I rented a Nissan Versa hatchback which held the large kennel and all of our stuff. $100 for car and gas to get us to Phoenix. Our first treatment was yesterday and no issues. He actually started breathing a little more easily through his nose later last night. Today is second treatment. After speaking to a few pet owners there with their pets I feel much better about my decision to do this.
Now I am more hopeful about him living longer and having the option to treat again if the tumor returns again. The side effects are minimal without notice. This is a common tumor for dogs and the SRS radiotherapy has been used in humans for some time. This clinic has one of the first like this which is also a great deal of thanks to vet Eric Boshoven. Thanks so much!
PetCure Oncology's Cincinnati location was nothing but sheer kindness, knowledge, and the perfect blend of love and professionalism while my dog, Sunny, received Stereotactic Radiosurgery in February. Kelli Sloane, the radiation therapist, has in particular been integral in helping us get through this process. She takes my calls at any moment, answers questions, coordinates with Dr. Mauldin -- who gets back with her in a matter of moments. I can't imagine having to face my dog's cancer with any other group of humans.
I would encourage ANYONE facing canine or feline cancer to explore PetCure Oncology as an option -- particularly SRS -- and don't give up! PetCure will give you all the options possible and speak openly about what they feel they can achieve with their state-of-the-art technology and expertise. Thank you all so much for all you have done for Sunny.
Everyone was so wonderful. They all really cared. They wanted to do the very best thing for Samantha. [Radiation therapist] Kelli Sloane is just a lovely person. She explained everything about how the procedure would work and she was very caring. Kelli Sloane was so wonderful. She called me within a day or so after taking Samantha home. She called several months later. She called a year later because it was anniversary. All the doctors were wonderful!
The staff at Petcure made a very tough situation much better for me and my special cat, Attu. Everyone took the time to explain what was going to happen and the techs always took the time to tell me how he did. They told me that he was a pleasure to work with and I could tell they were sincere. The place is very comfortable and I always felt like he was in good hands.
Being a vet tech myself, it was hard to turn him over to go to "the back" without me, but Dr. Simko and Mike Jones and everyone else I talked to made me feel at ease. I am so glad that this treatment existed for him. It has only been a short time but I swear he is feeling better already. I am glad that Petcure is there and able to help so many special pets!
Hearing that our cocker spaniel, Lucky, has nasal cancer, was the blow of all blows. We spent the holiday season with the wind knocked out of ourselves. Frantically searching the area for an affordable CT scan and discovering PetCure’s Clifton, NJ location so close to home was nothing short of divine intervention. Who knew making a 'cold call' could bring such hope? We know, without a doubt, that Lucky was in the best hands during his sessions there.
A month and a half in, Lucky’s improving every day. He’s a young 12 year old boy (almost 13) so seeing him gaining weight and continue to be his happy self has been a blessing. He’s gone through a lot but you wouldn’t know it by his joyful demeanor. Robin and I just want to reach out to everyone at PetCure and thank each of you for your professional expertise and compassion. The care, concern and respect you showed our boy did not go unnoticed.
Here is Gus, one year after his treatment. Looking good and doing well - his face has turned white but it makes him look more distinguished!! We are thankful for every day we have with him.
We are blessed every single day to have Liza with us and we have all of the PetCure Oncology and Care Center team in Cincinnati to thank. There will never be enough words to express our gratitude. Just keep doing what you are doing. It is making a difference. God bless all of you there and peace.
Cera came through the radiation treatment with flying colors and has had no side effects from the chemo. And now, 6 months after treatment began, we were able to see on the follow-up CT Scan that the lymphoma is virtually gone! We were worried when we started this journey that our feisty girl wouldn't feel well during the treatment, and that it might somehow affect her quality of life. Nothing could be further from the truth! She has taken it all in stride and is just as bossy and opinionated as ever. We are so pleased that we could take advantage of this treatment option and help this amazing cat remain a part of our family for years to come.
We are so grateful to Dr. Boshoven and his staff for taking good care of Maximus during his Stereotactic Radiosurgery. We are proud to announce that Maximus graduated and is now ready to return to his home in New Mexico.
