Gizmo is an 11 year old terrier mix who has been with our family since he was seven months old when we rescued him. He was unfortunately diagnosed with a left side malignant anal sac apocrine gland adenocarcinoma. However, his staging for the cancer all came back negative including his bloodwork, chest X-ray, and abdominal ultrasound, which is positive and exciting news! He was started on Piroxicam to help slow the growth of the tumor. The next step for Gizmo is surgery to remove the mass, followed by radiation treatment after healing is complete. Gizmo’s favorite pastimes are sunbathing, running along our backyard fence barking, wrestling with his Shih Tzu brother, and snuggling up for naps with his momma and human baby sister. We are extremely grateful for a foundation like this to help take away some of the burden, and show us we are not alone in this process.
