Kugel found us or we found Kugel only a few years ago - not sure how the story starts. But, since we first got Kugel she was very sick. The fabulous Dr. Kim Alexander helped us determine it was gastric lymphoma.
Thanks to Dr. Chick Weisse, Katie will turn 3 this October. Katie was diagnosed with a liver shunt at 3 months old. Dr. Weisse put her on medications till she was old enough to have the surgery correct her problem.
Read the 2013 UPDATE! Two years ago Sandy, my 10 year old Beagle began drinking excess amounts of water. Concerned, but not thinking it was life threatening, I brought her to my local vet. The doctor ran some blood tests. Then he told me it could be a sign of cancer.
