Meet Max- 5 year old Rottweiler

Max Hoogerheyde, a 5-year old Rottweiler, was diagnosed with Lymphoma in May of 2002. He was losing weight and having trouble breathing. Ellen Hoogerheyde, Max's owner and Dr. Don Costlow discussed the various treatment options and prognosis for Max. They both agreed that chemotherapy would give Max the best chance to beat this cancer. Dr. Costlow constructed a chemotherapy regimen to be performed at our hospital that included both injections and pills. The injections were given weekly for four weeks then monthly. Max responded to the chemotherapy and began to improve immediately. Max continued to gain weight and was as active as a puppy. Max lived cancer free for several years. This success story shows how the modern technology of veterinary medicine and a dedicated pet owner can combine forces to save a loving pets life
