Rocko was diagnosed with aggressively malignant cancer in January 2017, along with the already suspected Inflammatory Bowel Disease which had caused ongoing problems. The internal medicine specialist started him on prednisone to help comfort and we agreed to not tell this little guy that he had cancer – he didn’t know it yet. He continued to enjoy his life and the company of his ODH family and his brother Choko. In late April he slowed down a little but the end came very suddenly – just as we’d hoped. His ODH family appreciates the support from his doctors and misses his presence greatly.
