Wooohooo! Here’s to Ziva day! She is one amazing dog and so resilient. It’s pawesome to know she’s bounced back and is ready to get on with life as I’m sure you are too. Can’t wait to see more photos and video 🙂

Hi Steve

I am super happy Ziva is doing well 🙂

steveh said

     Pupdate: Ziva is doing well, she has her good days and some bad. Usually the bad is if she overdoes it the day before. She still tires out quickly but it’s been barely over three weeks since surgery.  Still don’t have a decisive path for chemo or if we are even going that route. Still doing the herbal holistic route which looks to be helping with her stamina and energy level. 

   So all in all no news is good news at this point. Take care all Steve & Ziva. 

 This is so true about overdoing.  Even if Arktik is doing very well when he overdoes it one day he is usually pretty quiet the next day, not bad but I can tell he is more tired.

Keep up the good work Ziva 🙂

Wow she looks GREAT! I mean the photos were awesome but in that video you can just see the joy in her expression and how she moves. Those ears flopping around just make me smile so big! smiley4What a wonderful thing to see her find her way back to doing the things she loves most in the world.

Hi all! Thank you for posting your journey with Ziva. Such a strong doggie! My 9 year old yorkie poo is set to see an oncologist on Friday about his nerve sheath tumor on his front left leg that popped up out of nowhere. I joined this group because I was driving myself crazy and crying constantly. You have given me hope. Good luck!

Hello jettjett and welcome.  Your future posts will not have to wait for approval.

Is jettjett your pup’s name?  Please consider starting your own thread maybe in Presentation and Diagnosis so you can introduce your pup and tell us more about your journey so far. 

This Blog post might help you with Friday’s appointment: “Questions to Ask Your Veterinary Oncologist.”

     Ziva Pupdate:

   Sorry for the long delay, been crazy at work and my old iPad finally crashed so I lost all my pictures and videos. Anyway here we are almost two months post op. Ziva is doing great!!! She is doing things now everyday that she used to do on all fours. She has found new ways to do all her tricks and her balance is unbelievable. Playing running are effortless, you’d never know she wasn’t born this way. 

    So I’m going to try and do some updated pictures and videos and see if I can get some posted up. 

  Her treatment so far has just been natural remedies to help build her immune system from Dr Wolf @ petsynergy.com and her primary care Vet Dr Allen is working up a chemo plan if we decide to go that way. 

  Stay tuned and I’ll do my best to update the pics of my amazing best friend. Thank you all for your help support and advise, I don’t think I could have done this without all of you. ,!!
