Cassie

In the summer of 2008, while fishing near Juneau, Alaska, Dave and Eddylee Scott found a lump on the top of their 7-year old Golden Retriever’s head. They made a quick call back home to their veterinarian, Dr. Lance Campbell (’99 DVM), who advised them to take “Cassie” to a clinic in Juneau and have the lump removed. The Southeast Alaska Animal Medical Center removed the tumor- a benign multilobular tumor of the bone- but within 3 weeks the tumor returned. On the advice of Dr. Campbell, they traveled to Washington State University’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital in Pullman, Wash.  [read more]
