Name: Dempsey

Gender: Male

Current Weight: 56.60  lbs

Date of Birth: 1/1/2012

Type of Cancer: Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Dempsey arrived at Keto Pet Sanctuary on 4/21/2016 after being diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma on 2/26/2016. The Squamous Cell Carcinoma which was located just left of the prepuce did show some decrease in metabolic activity while on our protocol, however, we needed to do a recent resection in the hopes to mitigate continued growth. It has been determined that we did not get wide enough margins with this resection, so there may need to be a future resection if this tumor shows significant growth.  He is a very happy and extremely energetic dog and he would make a great addition to  loving family who is active.
