Indy’s Mom recently reached out to us as her dog Indy had just recently had a splenectomy and the Dr.’s were pretty sure it was hemangiosarcoma. Never a good diagnosis. While she waited the biopsy results, she found Addie’s blog and neoplasene. Unfortunately, the diagnosis was Histiocytic Sarcoma which is actually worse than hemangiosarcoma is one can believe that! Indy just started on neoplasene and they started a blog to help others. Follow Indy’s journey here.

After crying and feeling hopeless for most of 24 hours, we decided to do some research on Hemangiosarcoma as well as any alternative options to chemo.
Rob came across a drug called Neoplasene. It reported some amazing results in dogs with all types of cancer. He made a call to Dr. Fox at Buck Mountain Botanicals to purchase some of the medicine but was told that only a veterinarian could order. On Thursday, he had our local veterinarian order it for us for Monday delivery.
I still researched all weekend. The bad news was that there was not much information about neoplasene being used on dogs with Hemangiosarcoma. There were very few cases to be found.
That is the reason for this blog.
We want to post about how we are attempting to improve the quality and quantity of Addie’s remaining time with us.
Our hope is that it will help others that follow with our same struggle.
