Onyx – the “nature boy”

Onyx is an 8 year old black lab who recently completed his chemo protocol at Southwest Veterinary Oncology.  He was born in Washington state, where he loved swimming in the Puget Sound and frolicking on the Edmonds dog beach.  He moved to Arizona when he was 2 and still loves the outdoors.  We call him Nature Boy!  His favorite activities include swimming, fetching, hiking, chomping on sticks, playing in the sprinkler, going for walks, and running races with his momma.  He particularly enjoys going on trips and adventures – he just loves to see his bag being packed with all of his things.
Throughout chemotherapy, Onyx has continued to enjoy the same quality of life he had prior to treatment.  He looks so amazing and just like his usual self that people are really surprised when we tell them that he has lymphoma.  I am ever grateful for the additional time I have with my sweet baby thanks to the wonderful work of Dr. Beaver and the staff of Southwest Veterinary Oncology.
