I had a talk with the folks at Modiano labs and she is putting me in touch with the people at the Broad Institute doing DNA research. She says www.modiano will be updating their web page soon but still finding no correlation with finished PVC toys, plastic dog bowls, nylabones etc.

I am doing what I can to put any samples into the hands of the right people if he is positive. Honestly it is all I can DO to prepare myself for the visit (and spend time wiht Grim; I took the entire day off of work)

This is so important. I'm thinking of you today.

Boy that Morris page has a LOT of links. Not sure I can get into them all today. WOW. Do we HAVE a hemangiosarcoma sticky (not about individual dogs but about research, testing, etc?

Rushing around no time to look

Nancy, I'm so very sorry

The day we found out that Max had *extensive* metastasized hemangio, I had the VDI test taken. They reported back, from their reading, he was okay. The number they report back to the owner was a bit elevated, but their second marker that they test but do not report, a measure of inflammation perhaps (I want to say it's the c-reactive protein, but am not sure), well, that was normal, so he went into the non-cancer category. I know you went through this with Cyra

Have no idea about the oncopet linked above: ONCOPET - Dogs

I firmly believe that Max's hemangio was held partially at bay by the doxy, which inhibits blood vessel growth that feeds tumors.

I will be thinking of you guys in this very difficult time.

There's this:
Health Topics: Collective Wisdom

The Morris stuff is good/too much.

Are you saying you need information on making an accurate diagnosis?

Those links in the sticky no longer work, you have to scroll down to the right section...

I am betting that the u/s will give you information. I am hoping it is good news, I am the eternal optimist...
