Brando is probably one of the nicest dogs you will ever meet!  This sweet red teddy bear was rescued from a City shelter in seemingly good health but we quickly realized that he had numerous medical issues. 

First were the seizures/tremors/collapsing episodes.  We consulted with a vet who diagnosed Brando with a heart murmur, so off to the cardiologist he went for further evaluation.  The cardiologist confirmed a high level heart murmur with some changes to the overall function of the heart but luckily the condition is currently stable, it is unlikely the cause of  Brando's seizures/tremors/collapsing episodes.  Brando probably has a  seizure disorder (like epilepsy) and may at some point do a trial anti-seizure medication. 

Then two growths suddenly appeared (one on his leg and one on his neck.)  A preliminary biopsy was done which confirmed a high grade malignant (cancerous) mast cell tumor.  Brando will have surgery to remove both lumps which hopefully will remove all of the cancer. 

Please keep Brando in your thoughts.

Brando update! Surgery complete - both tumors were removed. There is some concern that the cancer might have spread prior to removing the tumors, but everyone is thinking optimistic and just carefully watching for changes or developments.

Brando is recovering well from surgery, wearing his donut collar proudly (mostly) and being the joyful sweet boy that we know and love.

Thanks to everyone who is sending positive thoughts and donating to help with Brando's vet bills.
