Greetings! I am so glad to have found this site. The photos are of my dear Maggie Mae. She is an 8 year old Irish Setter. She is from the Fleetwod Farm's bloodline. I do not know if this kennel is known outside of the United States. I found this site accidently, last night while researching the association between osteosarcomas and Irish setters. On May 10th, I found a hard mass on Maggie's front right ankle joint. X-Rays have shown that it is a mass growing over the joint. She is having a biospy done right now. Please keep us in your prayers. I lost my previous setter, Brandy, to bone cancer in 2000. If I lose my sweet Maggie to this terrible disease, it will devastate me. Sincerely, Paul

Greetings Friends! I want to thank everyone for their kind welcome and their good wishes concerning my Maggie. The Vet called me late last night with the biospy results. The tumor is not cancerous. It is a benign Fibroma. We are so relieved! But now we have to decide on what course of action to take with the growth. Surgery is an option, but the growth is directly over the " ankle" joint and the Vet is concerned that in removing it, a tendon could possibly be cut. This would leave Maggie lame in that leg. The Vet is consulting with an Ortho. Surgeon today and will get back with us. Thank you all again for your kind thoughts and prayers. I'm sure that they helped. You all have such BEAUTIFUL setters. I see that some of you have more than one red head beauty. What a joy that must be to see 2, 3, or 4 setters running together in a field or splashing playfully in a pond. The one thing that I've always loved about Irish setters is that they know how to have fun. You can actually see it in their faces. Sincerely, Paul

What a pleasant surprise! Thank you so very much for the kind Birthday Wishes. I truly appreciate it. Good News......That benign growth is actually starting to shrink. I guess that the body might be reabsorbing it. My dear Mags is back to her crazy, fun loving self. I feel so blessed. Her continued good health is the BEST present that I could ever have hoped to receive. I do want to sincerely thank everyone that kept Maggie in their prayers. Please take care, Paul & Maggie Mae

Dear Paul,

I hope everything turns out ok with your lovely Maggie, but whatever results are always keep positive. My cat Ziggy had two cosecutive surgeries to remove a mastocytoma level III( cancer) last October, considered fatal on cats and so rare that there are no studies about it. I’ve looked for help everywhere and an angel fell from the sky (from the UK:-) ) and helped me finding an oncologist vet in Portugal. Against all odds and after 2 surgeries and 8 chemotherapy sessions Ziggy is very much alive, naughty, beautiful and in a great mood. I also had the help of my vet that advised me to find an oncologist. Most of the times our vets are not specialized in certain areas and the best is to find someone dedicated to a specific area.
But I sure that your Maggie is Ok and you won’t have anything to worry about.
Best of luck to booth of you.
