Thanks everyone! We are still waiting for the call from the vet. Looks like we may not know until Monday. On a hopefully good note I checked the nodes on her sides behind her elbows and the right side appears to have gone down. They were both almost egg size and now the right side is about half as big.

Unfortunately it was bad news from the vet. She has lymphoma and it is very wide spread

I'm so sorry I've been down that road with my golden. We kept our girl on steroids to keep inflammation and swelling down and to stimulate her appetite. It kept her comfortable and gave us a couple more months with her.
Big hugs to you!!!
Enjoy the time you guys have with her now, I hope they can keep her comfortable and happy so you have some good times with her .

So sorry. She's beautiful, and will always be a part of you. I don't know what to say, because there isn't anything that will make you feel better.

The whole family is just devastated. I was sitting on the floor crying and she came over and was loving on me. She was all happy like she was saying "hey it's ok". It is just so hard to deal with. My vet was choked up on the phone because he thinks she is such a great dog.

I'm so sorry for all of you and for poor Zelda. That is heartbreaking. I wish I had some magical words of comfort for you.

Did he refer you to an oncologist? There are many treatment options now to educate yourself about. We didn't put Hooch through aggressive chemo due to the fact he'd need to be sedated (he was abused and became aggressive at vet) but definitely consult with an oncologist about options. Praying for your baby.

I am so sorry. We got the same diagnosis for our lab mix last July with a prognosis of 2-6 weeks, but he lasted 10. It was still tough though. Many prayers for Zelda and your family.

ETA: we were told that there are two types of lymphoma in dogs (I can't remember which is which: t-cell? B-cell?) one responds reasonably well to chemo, and the other doesn't. Ours was the kind that didn't. In addition, we were told that they only give dogs a small amount of chemo, with the goal of slowing the cancer down and prolonging life -- not the large amounts that humans get with the hopes of actually killing the cancer.

I'm so sorry. Dogs are such blessings in our lives and definitely members of the family.

We discussed it briefly. At best we'd gain a couple of months and there is no one close to us that does the treatments. So it would be a significant travel time.

I discussed having the vet out today with DH and DS. I'm going to make the call shortly. The day we took her in she was was lethargic and was just laying out on our patio. She improved on Friday after the vet gave her a shot. Yesterday I was optimistically saying she was 90% of normal but the real truth is she laid out in her favorite spots on the deck all day. At times she seemed obviously stressed and has been panting non-stop. I was hopeful that she had something else going on and it wasn't cancer. This morning she came in and really didn't touch her food. We went out for our ritual frisbee throwing with her buddy Jett and she really was not into it. She has been drinking water like crazy which I'm sure is because of whats going on with her.

I just can't bear the thought of watching her suffer. I'd rather let her go now.
