Story

In October this year (2016) our gorgeous boy Kasper was diagnosed with type T lymphoma cancer just weeks before his sixth birthday.

Unfortunately we don't have any insurance and have been paying his vet bills for the last month and a half, currently totalling just over £2000.

His cycle of treatment is a weekly dose of chemo, coming in the form of an injection at our local vets, chemo tablets at home the following week, another injection the week after and then a chemo infusion (drip) at a specialist cancer Vets, who are some 60 mile round trip from us.

His whole course is set to run for six months and so far his lymph nodes have reduced massively to there original 'golf ball' sized lumps and he's doing really well.

On top of the vet bills and time off from work, which myself and my partner share. My partner has also been coming home at dinner times from her work place to feed Kasper, white fish, chicken breasts and sardines for a mid day meal, to try and build his weight back up, as he had lost around 4-5kg before his treatment began.

Due to these extra efforts and his continued treatment I'm happy to report he's almost back upto his previous weight of a lean and healthy 37.5kgs ! Which is great news, as things are all going in the right direction !

Currently were a quarter the way through his treatment and current costs, minus extra cancer fighting foods, time and travel etc stand at just over £2000. At this rate it's going to cost us in the region of £6000 to complete his course.

I know everyone loves their pets, but Kasper is such a great boy, he's so clever and gentle and really doesn't deserve this (no one does!) but he has met the treatments with his usual bright personality and has so much more life to live.

If you are an animal lover, or have had a pet or family member suffer from this horrible disease, I'm asking you to please help us continue his treatment and help kick cancers butt.

Thank you for all donations X

    take him back for the last time. He's fought it bravely all the way and is reasonably perky after his chicken tonight but has now gone straight to sleep not long after. Hardly surprising after being poked and prodded for the last few days. So from now on well not bombard him with anymore chemo, as we've been informed it may only extend things a further week or two at best, but make him feel crappy. So well keep him comfy till he lets us know he's ready. Thank you for everyone's support over the last five months X

    So I'm afraid it's bad news from the vets tonight, Kaspers levels of calcium are still high as his creatine, despite being on fluids for the last 24 hours at Pride park vets. He has come home tonight and has had a steroid injection to help him in the short term and has also managed some chicken, having not eaten anything for the last three days. I'm off tomorrow to our vets at Pets at home in Derby to test his bloods again and arrange his Palatable Care drugs (end of life) to ease him toward the end and make him more comfortable before we take

    So the last week hasn't been good I'm afraid, Kaspers cancer has returned again and his lymph node on his neck is quiet large now. Furthermore his undercoat has shed and he's lost 2kg as he's stopped eating and is only managing some milk and water. This has given him a little dioreah, with what little poo he is producing. He's now currently at Pride Park vets undergoing a 24hr flush of his blood to try and make him more comfortable and get him back eating with the hopes of him being strong enough to look at another rescue treatment.
