Chihuahua treated for cancer at UC Davis veterinary hospital

We are so grateful to the generous grant from the Blue Buffalo Foundation’s support of the Petco Foundation pet cancer treatment program at the UC Davis veterinary hospital. The grant helps pay for treatments of domestic companion animals suffering from cancer. The project is designed to support pet parents of modest means or pet parents whose pets provide a service to others.

Pixie, a 12-year-old Chihuahua, is one the latest pets to benefit from this program.

“We were devastated to learn our beloved Chihuahua Pixie, had leukemia," said Pixie's owner. "Things did not look good, but with the help of the doctors at the UC Davis veterinary hospital, we decided on chemotherapy treatment. It was a very long process, several months of chemotherapy. The expense was adding up each month, but we could not stop treatment when she was getting better. Finally, we found out about the PetCo grant, and we were awarded it. We are so thankful for that grant – it helped us continue treatment for Pixie, and I am happy to say she is leukemia free now, for 9 months! We are very grateful to all the help of the doctors at UC Davis, and to PetCo for the great gift of the grant we received.”
