    DefaultZack

    Zack had a round cell tumor removed in April, recovered great for a 14 year old. Since then, he has about 15 more tumors popping up all over his body. 3 are in the general area of where the round cell tumor was removed. They are starting to ooze, so we are keeping them clean and putting on Gold Bond powder for itching. Have him in a T-shirt to control some of the ooze and just don't know where to go from here. It breaks my heart to see this happening to this Stoic Oldster. He has dealt with so many issues through his 14 years and bounces back each time. We are just taking this day to day. He is eating, happy, thumping his big tail and seems to be enjoying life still. I guess all that I am asking is for a little Just Lab support. He is such a trooper, but I am having a really hard time watching him go through this. Besides the tumors, he has trouble walking and we are helping him with a leash under him for support. Here are a few pictures taken the last couple months.

    I'm so sorry he's suffering. It's awful to watch and I still remember watching my girl go downhill vividly. Many prayers to you both!
