POTP needed- Miss Snickers

We know that we have not been around a lot lately, but we have a very good reason!  Miss Snickers, our 12 year old "foster" , has been experiencing great difficulty with her nether regions when she goes outside with the rest of the pack- she has been straining and not much has come out, if anything.  There have been multiple trips to the vet for enemas, a trip to the er vet, xrays, meds, etc, and we thought that the mystery was solved when it was discovered that she had anal gland issues. Once it was expressed (only the left side was involved)  all was thought to be well.  (Have you ever seen WHN doing the Poopy Happy Dance?  We need eye bleach from the last time she did it!)  Unfortunately, the problem has returned with a vengeance and it appears that she has a tumor growing in that part of her that is disrupting her bowels.  So, tomorrow, she will be undergoing surgery to remove the tumor, or as much of it as is possible, so that she can again commence firing on all cylinders, so to speak.  The prognosis is guarded, as it is not known if the tumor is cancerous, nor if surgery will correct the problem, cancerous or not.  IF the surgery is unable to correct the issues, and/or if the tumor is cancerous (we are paying for the biopsy while DRNA is paying for the surgery), Miss Snickers will have 6 months left.  Her inability to poop will end up killing her if the surgery is a failure.  WHN and Mr Geoff are devastated by the news- Miss Snickers has been an adorable addition to the pack, and her sister Sable has bonded with Anna Rose 2, so much so that the two of them are into constant mischeif and all three of our MIssouri girls sleep uinder huge piles of blankets on the floor.  (Tasha still reigns supreme on the couch)

Please keep Miss Snickers in your prayers tomorrow- She has only been with us a few months but she has come so far from an abandoned senior.

You can bet we're still praying for Miss Snickers and we have been since we heard about her pooping issues. Please give her hugs and love from all of us.

You and Geoff are the BEST for taking such great care of her!

I cross all my paws for Miss Snickers and I hope that the surgery goes well and that the tumor is not malignant.

Kia was diagnosed with anal gland adenocarcinoma in June 2013. His surgery went well, he had radiation and chem and has since had good, all clear, checkups. He is now 12, has a well working poop shooter. On the whole he is doing well for an older pup and I plan to enjoy all the time I can with him. Here's hoping things go as well For Miss Snickers. It is an unusual ailment.
