Ever since the FDA announced approval of the drug Palladia this past June to treat Mast Cell Cancer in dogs, many people have been looking into this as a treatment option, since mast cell tumors are one of the most common types of tumors found on dogs. But, because this treatment is still relatively new, there aren’t as many documented stories from pet owners about their dog’s personal experiences using this drug.
As most of us know, hearing firsthand from another pet owner about a particular cancer treatment can be an extremely valuable tool in deciding how to handle our own dog’s cancer.
Meet Rosie, a beautiful and sweet yellow lab who was diagnosed with Mast Cell Cancer in June 2009. She is currently being treated with Palladia and has been doing extremely well throughout treatment. She is actually in remission at the moment, with no sign of cancer. To help others learn from Rosie’s experience, her parents decided to document her journey through a blog called “Rosie’s Road.”
So, if your dog has been diagnosed with Mast Cell Cancer, check out this great blog filled with information to help you make the best possible decisions to help your best friend. Learn from Rosie and share in the trials and triumps of her journey with cancer.
