About two months ago, we discovered that Maisy had a high grade soft tissue sarcoma. Cancer. We were sent to the University of Guelph for more tests and to speak to an Oncology team. While University of Guelph is the best place for treatment in Ontario, we were told that our only curative treatment option for Maisy was in Madison, Wisconsin. We were recommended to take her for a month long radiation treatment at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We made up our minds pretty quickly that we wanted Maisy to have the best care and the best chance possible. We packed up the car and drove out to Wisconsin within a few days. We had absolutely no idea what to expect from this trip. Our month in Madison was heartbreaking, fun, sad, quiet, tiring, full of discovery, love and adventure. I will never forget all those days we were able to spend together as a family.
I think the photos tell the full story best. The entire Madison photo set is here.
The UW School of Veterinary Medicine is an incredible facility that is highly regarded for a reason. They are the best. We are so thankful to them for their loving care of Maisy while she was with them. Maisy has pet insurance and we know now that it is the best one out there. Trupanion.
We are back home now in Toronto. Maisy’s next stages of treatment will continue back at University of Guelph. It’s good to be home.
