I had 2 years old girl sweetie she had yellowish on her fur on top of her head I thought it was just dirt or a bruise ( she could open gate using her head/nose) I thought it was from that…. She had that yellowish fur on her maybe for a month. She was fine happy and hyper until one day she peed dark…threw up twice,,, won’t eat,,, but was very thirsty… Couldn’t walk good ,,,she was weak couldn’t stand up we had to carry her to go outside and in car ..her gum turned white in the car on way to ER .it was so sudden. So we took her into ER vet said she had IMHA anemia and said her liver was high and low red cells her PVC was 24%
She stayed overnight at ER on IV …they said she had bloody diaherra gave her meds for that. We picked her up her PVC was 20% next day so we took her to our regular vet and she said she needed blood transfusion she may have 50/50 chance but vet said to bring her home if we wanted but didn’t think she will make it and maybe will have hard time breathing but other option vet said put in sleep ,,,we made the hardest decision to put her in sleep I couldn’t stop crying it’s been two months she passed. So I wonder why she had jaundice and she was fine for s month ( if I knew I would’ve took her in early) I had no idea about dogs could have jaundice or I have never heard of IMHA ever before I’m at loss and feel guilty I’m just heartbroken.

But let’s talk about Squamous Cell Carcinoma. It’s a type of cancer...
Everyone with a dog or cat has dealt with it at one point. It’s never pretty.
Of course, I could write pages and pages on this topic.
Our focus here: when do you start to worry?...
