I took Bubbles to the vet today because he's been loosing weight and seemed to be breathing very fast. The vet took some x-rays and he has a large growth in his body cavity. His lungs also look abnormal. It is the opinion of my vet that the growth is cancer and that it metastasized to his lungs. We are doing further tests to confirm the diagnosis.
As you can imagine this is devastating news. Of course I hold out some small hope that we will find with the further tests that there is something to be done. At the moment I'm concentrating on giving him as much love and attention as I can.
