Polo & Rescue

SAGE Concord

Department: Oncology/Integrative

Service/Procedure: Tumor Removal, Laser Treatments, and Acupuncture

Polo, my rescue, brindle, pit mix, was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer on his ear flap in 2009. Dr. Wendi Rankin and her staff at SAGE Dublin helped Polo battle cancer successfully for over a decade. Dr. Rankin and her staff made sure I had a full understanding of what the treatment plan was and what to expect. They provided Polo with a quality of life and made it possible for us to grow old together. When we decided to stop chemo for Polo, I transferred him to the care of Dr. McCabe and team of SAGE Concord. Integrative treatments became our path: acupuncture, laser treatments, herbs, and magnetic beds. Polo and I were always treated with such care and Polo’s quality of life was always the priority. Polo lost his battle with cancer on Oct. 23, 2018. Polo was just over 15-years old. We had a wonderful life together, I miss him so much! I know I was blessed to have had the quality care for Polo from SAGE that extended his life. After Polo’s passing I was overwhelmed with support from Polo’s doctors. Flowers, cards, phone calls and words of encouragement helped me during this time of loss. Rescue, my cat who is 20 years young, is now battling cancer, an all too familiar road for us. Again, Dr. McCabe and her team are there for us. Many hugs and tears have been shared during Polo and Rescues care at SAGE. That’s what makes SAGE in Dublin and Concord unique and special! They’re just one big caring, supportive family. Please see check out this photo of Polo and Rescue, they loved spending time together.
