When Shortbread was rescued in August 2020, she was found to have multiple lumps all over the body. Biopsy samples were taken and sent to the lab. In Sept 2020, X-rays were taken and no cancer spread to the lungs was noted.

Unfortunately, the lab report diagnosed Shortbread with high-grade mast cell tumour. The estimated survival time is only 1-2 years.

Shortbread also has a grade 4/6 heart murmur, and arthritis with Grade 4/4 loose kneecaps (luxating patellas). She has a condition called “dry eye” (keratoconjunctivitis sicca) in her left eye, which will require lifelong eye medication.

However, Shortbread is active, eating and drinking well, and still has a good quality of life. Thus, we are looking for an adopter to provide palliative care so that Shortbread can enjoy her remaining time.
