    Promoting Healthy Lifestyles for Pets

    In January of 2010 I lost the love of my life – Max. In August of 2009 I began to notice that my Westie (West Highland White Terrier) was having trouble urinating. Many Veterinarian appointments later I learned that Max likely had cancer. This diagnosis was confirmed after a visit to a Tampa Veterinarian Oncologist. The type of cancer Max had was not treatable. All we could do was try to make the last months of his life as comfortable as possible. It was time to let Max go home in January and that was the saddest day of my life.

    I dove into research about Canine Cancer after losing Max. I was disturbed to learn that his exposure to herbicides and pesticides were likely the cause of his cancer. I was heartbroken to know that, had I known the dangers, I could have prevented the loss of his life.

    Join us here at the MaxMe Project where we will discuss ways to provide a healthy lifestyle for your pets. We will discuss Holistic Health Care, Natural Foods, Organic Lawn Care, Pet Loss, and more. We encourage you to contribute your story or any thoughts or ideas you have to promote a healthy lifestyle for pets everywhere.

    • Understanding TCC The transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) is a particularly unpleasant tumor of the urinary bladder. In dogs, it usually arises in the lower neck of the bladder, where it is virtually impossible to surgically remove, and causes a partial or complete obstruction of urination. The urethra (which carries urine outside the body) is affected in over ...
    • A Letter from Max to Veterinarians and Breeders Hello, my name is Max and I have an important story to share with you. It is important for you to know that I died on Wednesday, January 6, 2010.
