Louise Sarasota, Florida 4/12/2015 9:07:21 PM My rescue Rottie, Buddy, aged 8, was diagnosed with hemangiosarcome shortly after I became his Mommy. The oncology vet said that she would not operate on him - that this type of cancer is not painful - to take him home and make him comfortable until he passes. She said he had days to live. 18 months later, I took Buddy back to the vet. She was amazed that he was still alive and told me the same thing - take him home and make him comfortable...2 and a half years later I finally decided to euthanize Buddy after he could no longer walk and I realized that he was becoming uncomfortable. My precious Buddy lived over 4 years with hemangiosarcoma. He loved his life and really wanted to live. I've never seen anything like it. He still had a heart appetite on his final day, It was one of the hardest things I have ever done and my heart feels like a rocket blew threw it. I'm so devastated at the loss of my sweet Buddy.
