Thank You Dawn. I just got him up about 1/2 hour ago for the first time to go out and pee and he ate and drank and now back to recovery sleep.

So Capone is feeling much better that I've not really had to keep up on his pain meds that much in the last day....he started putting weight on his leg here and there and on bathroom breaks he's trying to run up the stairs which we have to stop him so we can lift him up them and 84lbs ugh lol 

We have our first vet appt today for a bandage change and I can finally see his paw and how it's healing....he had a lot of bruising on his belly from tumor on his side but that seems to be healing well ,just some swelling. 

I'll update later how things are looking with his paw.2016-04-04 14.18.48.jpg

Woo Hoo!  Wiggle Butts and Booty Shakes are appropriate for Capone's good news.    We're hoping the good news keeps coming.  :)

Yes he's healing well so far so good its bitter sweet though but we decide on a treatment and it's holistic I joined a facebook page for dogs with mast cell tumors and we're going to be changing his diet to Evo...I have him on 1/4 cup cottage cheese 》(contains lysine ) going to keep him on benadryl 3x daily to combat histamines from mast cell and tagamet ( actually used in chemo). Milk thistle,souerkrout, 》to alkalize the body,tumeric to name a few..anyone reading this interested it's called cleo's diet ....thousands are following this diet and it has great results dogs living 5 to 6 yrs plus with stage 2 and 3 that were given 6 months. I'm hopeful but I just want to do the best I can for him and make whatever time he has remaining healthy and happy and comfortable. AGAIN I'm beyond greatful that I got the help I did....Without it I would have lost him. He has a lot of life left in him and he's not going to go down without a fight so we're gonna fight this together :) but yes I hope the good news keeps coming....biopsy should be here in a few days.

I will post results as soon as I hear :)

That is wonderful news and so glad you are taking the route you are taking. Please keep us updated. Barley grass is also great to alkalize the body and people take it for cancer because cancer can't survive in an alkaline body.  We take it everyday and I give 2 tablets to my dog as well. When I first got her at 16 months she was always getting fleas. I was bathing her several times a week she was the first dog we ever had that got worms because of the fleas. So I knew that something was going on with her body. I was feeding her Organix (grain free organic dog food) but that wasn't enough. We were already taking the barley grass so I started giving it to Molly now her coat is gorgeous and no more fleas I truly believe in it. This is what we take green supreme barley tablets. If you call you can get it cheaper by buying 6 bottles at a time. http://greensupreme.net/products.htm.

Sending positive thoughts. Hugs to you both

Ok so sorry I haven't posted in a bit but we got some tragic news......We got the biopsy back and both tumors were mast cell high end stage 2 .....vet thinks 3 to 5 months :( Sooooooooo were doing our best to keep his immune system up and keeping histamines at bay...and trying some additional alternative medicine.

He gets his stitches out Monday ....ugh can't wait he hates the elizabath collar and I'm bandaging everyday so hope its all healed so he can get them out ....I'll keep everyone posted as usual ♡♡

Capone is such a handsome guy. :)  Sorry to hear the news wasn't better, but time limits are only a best guess. Capone may surprise you all yet!  I would look into some alternative medicine to see if there are treatments there that conventional medicine does not have. Also, don't know if this was already mentioned, but there is a great Facebook group for mast cell cancer in dogs, and the Pet Cancer Support group has dogs and cats with many types of cancer, including mast cell.

Praying for the best for Capone.

Judy is right, that time limit is nothing more than an educated guess.  My boy-pup has Wilson's disease (simply put, heavy metal poisoning, he cannot metabolize copper) and was given a 2-month death sentence.  That was three years ago and he's still going strong.  Every time my vet sees him, she says she can't believe he's still alive.  I tell her, "I guess I'm just not done with him yet."
