Oliver's Human Mom.
Ollie has been with me since he has been 8 weeks old. He is now 7 yrs 9 mos old.
Up until July of this yr Ollie has had no problem, but During 4th of July picnic celebrations Ollie got ahold of a corn on the cob and ate the whole thing.
In straining to poo he got what looked like a tiny pea size hemorrhoid. He did have to be hospitalized and have an endoscope with the removal of the rest of the cob.
About 10 days ago Ollie started straining again then started vomiting so back to the Emergency Vet.
After exam they found that the little pea size looking hemorrhoid was attached to a tumor, the tumor was now quite big taking up approximately half the lumen size of the anus, with just the little pea size looking hemorrhoid part exposed on the outer portion of his rectum.
After Chest and Abdominal Xrays, Blood work up and cytology aspirate.
Chest and Abdominal Xrays came back clear with no mets.
I recieved his cytology report thursday evening and got an email from his primary vet.
She said that the cytology showed what looked to be early stage cancer, and he should have it removed as soon as possible and she sent me a couple of names.
After calling multiple vets, I finally got an appointment at a vet surgeon and have an appointment Nov 12th and possible surgery booked for the following Friday to remove the tumor.
They know it’s some type of carcinoma but the exact type won’t be known until after it’s removed and tested.
We live off of a fixed income as I am disabled an am on SSDI.
I know this is a hard time for many, and really have a hard time asking for any help but with these 2 costly events happening to Ollie. I have not had a chance to rebuild any saving. I would appreciate any and all donations no matter how small. Many small donations can do big things and go along way.
If you can not donate at this time, can you please send up prayers for my boy
Please Help Ollie
I will post Drs information if you would like to donate Directly to the vets office.
Also if there are any funds available that are not used for Ollie and his care, they will be donated to rescue. With pictures of everything.
I want to be very transparent and will be posting his vet bills.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
