As I reported last week, my dog Kobe has cancer. Today, the oncologist took some more ultrasounds and concluded that her tumor is inoperable.
The main possibility that remains is radiation therapy; while there can be painful side effects, it has a chance of shrinking the tumor and giving her more time, though it is unlikely to be much longer than 12 months.
I guess the big question we have to wrestle with now is if 6-9 months of additional life is worth the pain and cost (~$6,000) of treatment. I’m not sure what to do.
What would you do?
