Sad news on our Max

Max has battled thyroid cancer and now he was just diagnosed with liver cancer. He has been losing weight and not eating as well as he has been. His ACL issues have been giving him some problems and we attributed the weight loss to pain. We took him to the vet, ran all the tests and all but kidney test came back normal. We took him in a week later and he lost more weight. Last week we had an ultrasound on his abdominal area and they noticed tumors (several) in his liver, they did a biopsy and they came back as malignant carcinoma. The pathologist and our vet both agree that in theory they don't think the thyroid cancer metastasized in the liver.

Since the tests, Max has been almost back to normal behavior, he's not limping, he's running around and acting like a puppy. We will take the best care of him we can and make him as comfortable as possible. It doesn't look good and his prognosis is sad for all of us.
