My cat has lung cancer.

I have a 10 year old Himalayan female that I love so dearly. She began coughing continuously, so we took her to our vet to get xrays. The xrays showed a tumor in her lungs, which was soon removed in surgery, along with her entire lung lobe (that was the only way to remove the tumor). After the surgery, the follow up xrays a couple months later showed two more lung masses. Where do we go from here? Some oncologists we have talked to said that chemotherapy will not work because her cancer is so rare, and will only make her quality of life worse. Others say to give it a shot. She is also taking "Life Gold" cancer support, its a herbal supplement and we give her Buprinex to help with the pain. Has anyone heard of any treatments, experimentations, research, anything on how we can save her life. I would do anything for her, she is a huge part of the family.

hi Julia....welcome, but not good news that leads you to our cat community, we are only pet parents here and not Vets..so unfortunately all I am able to do is give you links to some info that may lead you to some answers you are looking for.
I am so very sorry for the diagnosis and truly hope you can find something that will be helpful to your dear kitty.
I love Himmies too, I have had two that passed on a few years ago both in their teens. the Himmie I now have the pleasure of sharing my life with is Sami he is 8...I wish you all the luck in the world, and would appreciate any updates...they indeed are a huge part of our family‚ô•
