Maggie Doesn’t Have Cancer!

Maggie Doesn’t Have Cancer!

Yay! I know this seems like an odd post, but I received a text from Maggie’s sainted owner, Julie Meyer, who said they were waiting on biopsy results from some large lumps/sores on the inside and outside of Maggie’s jaw. Maggie suffers from Canine Leproid Granuloma syndrome which just won’t permanently go away! Julie has Maggie on “cytopoint” injections to help with her allergies, but Maggie still has outbreaks of the CLG which cause very ugly lesions to grow on her face. Well, Julie just let me know that the biopsy came back “NO CANCER”, but rather a hypersensitivity allergic reaction in her lymphatic system. We celebrate this good news because Maggie is probably the best dog in the whole wide world. She has the best temperament I’ve seen and is so loving. She came into Rescue a mess, we thought we cleared her up (many vet visits, amputating her ear and part of her tail, months of different antibiotics, etc.) only to find out after Julie adopted her that the CLG was still hanging on. Julie has been dealing with this for years and just loving her Dane and not blaming us!(although we feel VERY guilty). So today is a day to celebrate a wonderful Dane and her wonderful owner and wish them many years together. Thank you Julie!

Maggie and her latest CLG bump on her lip and the photo below is a recent swelling of the right side of her face. The fun never stops!
