Vernon was rescued from San Bernardino in August. He had fly strike and a lump on his side, but was such a sweet boy that we could not leave him there. After a visit with the vet and better look at the lump we found out that Vernon has cancer. Due to the advanced stage, Vernon is not a candidate for surgery.
***May 29, 2014: Update on Vernon***
Vernon has been accepted to participate in a trial for a treatment for his cancer at CVS. As an update, Vernon is doing very well. His tumor has not grown but the effects of the Chemo pills that he’s been on for 9 months could start to cause problems to other organs if continued much longer. He is doing very well.
