We often rescue dogs with tumours, as we know many are treatable. This is what we hope for Khaleesi, who we rescued in December 2022. She was also malnutritioned and had bad mange, but despite all that, we hope we can restore some degree of health for her.
On 13 December 2022, we took in an older dog who was reported in a very poor condition. no hair, and a clear case of cancer. We believe it to be a mast cell tumor. Her case is treatable with chemo, medication for her skin and a lot of food and love, which we have in abundance.
We called her Khaleesi which means beautiful queen. We started chemo when we believed she was strong enough to handle the treatment. It is still early days, but we are hopeful she can fight the tumours and respond to the treatment. She is a very gentle soul that we hope will pull through.
Khaleesi's Latest News...
It was with tremendous sadness that we made the decision today to let Khaleesi go. Her cancers were only getting worse, and different treatments were having no effect.
We rescued her just a month ago as she was reported with terrible wounds all over her body. When we brought her to the Sanctuary and had her assessed by the vet we found out that she had multiple mast cell tumors. Unlike TVT tumors, mast cell is extremely difficult to treat. It responds best to a chemo called vinblastin - which luckily we had in stock. After two sessions there was no improvement and there were new tumors popping up.
We switched to another type of chemo and that also had no effect. Her cancer was particularly aggressive and there was no way to treat it so we made the decision to end her suffering. Its always such a hard decision but definitely the right one for poor Khaleesi - its just always difficult to make.
We gave her a lovely service and told her how much she was loved. Run free Khaleesi.
