Re: SCC/Stomatitis update-new diagnosis:parotid gland tumour

Thanks again to everyone who has followed Lulu’s story...it’s already been a week since we helped her cross over the Rainbow Bridge and I’m missing her in so many ways...I miss being woken up by the feeling of her breathe on my cheek and the tickle of her whiskers on my face, which was her way of te...

Re: SCC/Stomatitis update-new diagnosis:parotid gland tumour

Thankyou to everyone who gave me support over the past couple of weeks. Lulu was released from pain on Friday, 5th October...she passed peacefully in my arms, at home. Her tumour was invasive and aggressive, visibly distorting the right side of her face at an alarming rate. It was shocking, the spee...

Re: SCC/Stomatitis update-new diagnosis:parotid gland tumour

Tumour originates from salivary gland, so not SCC, but something just as bad...think it’s adenocarcinoma...vet advised euthanasia within 24 hours, so she’s doing a home visit tomorrow and helping her soul move on to ab better place.
Thanks to everyone for the good thoughts Xxx

Re: SCC/Stomatitis update

Thankyou Kay. We have an appointment this afternoon where I will ask the vet if she agrees that it’s time...I’ll ask if she can give her something to make her comfortable, prior to scheduling a home visit later today or tomorrow...Lulu had a good night, most of which she chose to spend cuddled into ...

Re: SCC/Stomatitis update

Thanks for the support and hugs everyone...I kept checking on Lulu during the night and she seems more settled, sleeping on the spare bed, so I managed to squirt the vetagesic into her mouth (I haven’t been able to get it into her the past few days, so she’s just been having gabapentin, which may be...

Re: SCC/Stomatitis update

I think the time is quickly approaching when I’ll have to let my sweet Lulu run free across the bridge...I’ve been unable to get her to take pain medsthis last 24 hours and she hasn’t eaten. She been sleeping mostly, though varying her sleeping places...under the bed, windowsill and favourite bed, b...

Re: cat not eating/drinking since 8/30, at ER since 9/2 - please help!

Hi. I’m just wondering what the outcome was with your kitty...I have a cat that’s just had biopsies taken from her throat, which the vet is sure will show she has cancer...my cat had similar symptoms to your cat, coughing, gagging, not eating, plus pawing at her face and making weird jaw movements. ...

Re: SCC/Stomatitis update

Thank you so much Ruth and Lil for the reassurance that I’m doing the right thing by Lulu. Her tumour is incredibly friable, plus it’s affecting her ability to fully open her mouth, so my vet has recommended a liquid diet of watered down a/d or other puréed food. I’ve got a baby blender so I’m going...

Re: Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Hi. Sorry you and kitty have had to go through this awful experience. Can I ask you for an update please? Was the biopsy positive for scc? How have things been since you last posted? I hope you’re ok xxx

Re: Stomatitis or oral cancer?

Thank you so much Ruth for your reply and good wishes. I’ve left my furbaby with the vet this morning, so now the waiting begins....The new vet is lovely and I know she will do her best to get to the bottom of what is going on. It may be that several concurrent issues are masking whatever is happeni...

Re: Stomatitis or oral cancer?

Thanks for your response. I only noticed her bleeding yesterday, although she has been having symptoms of stomatitis for a few months. Also, her eye has started weeping over the past week, on the same side of her face...I know enough about oncology and anatomy to know that scc can rapidly invade the...

SCC/Stomatitis update-new diagnosis:parotid gland tumour

4th October: biopsy results are back and it’s not good news. Lulu has a malignant tumour in her parotid gland(adenocarcinoma I think).. It’s already spread beyond the parotid, causing pressure behind her eye and limiting her jaw movements...she lost 250grammes in the last week, so now weighs 4.65kg,...
