We saw the veterinary oncologist today, had an OMG!long talk about everything one could ever possibly want to know about canine cancer, but the long story short:  we've decided not to pursue radiation or chemo or vaccination.

His lungs are clear, which is one saving grace.  Severe metastasis has not happened yet.

The median survival rate with all available measures is no greater than 18 months, and the median for the recommended treatment is only 8 months.  With aggressive treatment comes sick doggie, and neither I nor Mr. K. are willing to put Bernie through that, only to lose him anyway.

Best to let him live out his life as happy and healthily as possible, then let him go when he's ready.

In happier news... )
