I'm used to posting lousy news in the FU forum, but I figured I'd post some happy news for a change. My English Bulldog was in the vet's today for an ultrasound so they could check his insides. He's 7.5 years old and he's lost about 20 lbs over the last few months, and although he's eating and pretty active (for a bulldog) we were afraid that he might have the Big C and we would have to make a tough decision right before Christmas. He had some blood tests a few weeks ago and the results were inconclusive. So the vet wanted to do an ultrasound and possibly a biopsy of any masses found. Well he is 99% sure there's no cancer there, and thinks the problem is an inflamed bowel/intestine. This is a chronic/heredetary condition that's not curable, but can be controlled with diet. So my buddy will be around a little longer and won't need to be put down right before Christmas. Thanks for letting me share my "Anti-FU" with everyone!
