Casey & her friend Sunshine arrived at VPAS in April of 2012 because their owners had to move & were unable to take them along. At that time Casey was obese & needed to lose weight. She did very well on her diet, but after she began to lose some weight we discovered that the extra fat on her body was hiding several mammary tumors. The tumors would have taken Casey's life so we opted to try surgery to see if they could be removed. Sadly, once she was in surgery we discovered that she had many mammary tumors & her chances for survival were not good. We had to make the difficult decision to euthanize her so that she would not suffer as her tumors began to grow & take over her body. Although Casey wasn't with us very long we will miss her, as will her friend Sunshine.
