Robi will be on medical hold for the next 2 months in which time it is our hope that her tumor issues will be resolved. They are numerous and yet she seems to deal with all of this and is a happy dog.
About this Pei :
Robi is a sweet young female who needs a lot of medical attention. She is loved by her vets and allows them to accomplish the many tests that we hope will give her a better life. Please stay tuned and check the website or our Facebook for updates.
Update February 2022:
After many diagnostic tests and procedures including four tumor biopsies, lymph node aspirations, ultrasound, and exhaustive lab work, Robi was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer called canine cutaneous Langerhans cell histiocytosis. The diagnosis was made at the University of Florida school of veterinary medicine by the derm pathology department. She was given supportive care and love but continued to deteriorate and waste away. A difficult but humane decision was made to end her suffering and euthanize. Thanks to all the medical personnel for their care and to those who so kindly donated for her care. Our director and her husband stayed with her while she crossed the Rainbow Bridge and brought her cremains back to their home. She did not die alone. We hope to never see a case like this again.
