Known to thousands on the internet and in Southern California for his therapy visits at hospitals and community events, Chopper the biker dog has been diagnosed with Cushings.
As I expected, but sit here saddened, the results of my blood test yesterday came back POSITIVE for Cushing’s
As their are two major types that affect dogs: Pituitary dependent. This form is the most common, affecting about 80% to 90% of the animals who have Cushing’s. It happens when there’s a tumor in a pea-sized gland at the base of the brain, called the pituitary. The other is Adrenal masses, a mass on the adrenal gland.
TOMORROW I am set up to spend the day, 8 hours at the Ark Animal Hospital here in San Diego for 8 hours for more testing to determine what type I have, so we can start the correct ongoing treatment.
I want to take a moment to thank ALL those who have sent in and contributed a donation to help me through this.
One of my SUPERFANS created a Go fund Me page out of the goodness and love in her heart, and although I did not request it, I do appreciate those who have contributed, as it WILL help me get necessary upcoming tests and treatment. She set up the page for the funds to come DIRECTLY to me, and not her, as some people have asked about.
As I am not ASKING for any financial help, BUT, we really do appreciate the help so much!!!!
Thank you all again for your support!!! Much appreciate. Now, onward
