Final update folks! Dexter just had his second and final electrochemo treatment and is back home and resting. The total cost of his treatment ended up coming up to just over $5K which, with the funds you've all generously provided, the amount covered by the pet insurance, and the generous donation received from a family member, means we succeeded in covering the full cost of Dexter's treatment!!

Thank you so much to you all. I can't tell you how much your support has meant to both Dexter and his human, Sam. All of our best wishes to everyone who helped make this happen <333

More Info

My friend Sam is going through a very tough time. COVID has been tough for everyone, but after his dog Dexter had a mass cell tumour imperfectly removed from his leg this fall, testing has since shown that this poor little 5-yr old pupper has an aggressive form of cancer. Sadly, the funds provided by Sam's pet insurance would barely cover the scans, let alone the chemotherapy and possible amputation.

When the pandemic first hit, my friend was laid off from the job he's had for 10+ years, and the following months of lockdown and social distancing have aggravated his anxiety and depression. Dexter is his one comfort and support, and the thought of losing his best friend is more than he can cope with. Any help you can give would be enormously appreciated. Every donation counts! Dexter is a young and energetic dog so he's got a fighting chance at beating this, but we can't do it without your help ♥

Update #6

So the test results are in and the news is reassuring: The cancer hasn't spread to the liver and the spleen!! The oncologist says that two sessions of electrochemotherapy would be the right course of treatment for Dexter's cancer. This would leave him with only a 30% chance of reoccurence at the site of the tumour and a very low 3% chance of spread!

All in all, good news! His treatment will begin in early February. ♥

Update #5

Hi folks! Dexter had his first oncology appointment yesterday!

The poor little dude was poked and prodded mightily. He was sedated, and they drew blood for blood tests, performed an ultrasound of his liver and spleen, and took samples of his lymph nodes (although they ultimately were unable to find his lymph nodes because they were too small).

We're cautiously optimistic following the discussion with the specialist. The test results should be in soon, and we'll have a far better idea of what precisely the course of treatment will be at that point.

Huge thanks to everyone again! We'll keep you all appraised of the situation in the coming days and weeks.

Quick update on the funding goal: It's $12K not $12 million (!)
Sorry for that very confusing typo on my part :)
