At the time, she revealed the pet died four days after being diagnosed with lung cancer and was kept ‘comfortable’ with medication.

Amy shared: “We took her to the vet five days ago for what we thought was allergies.

“He [the vet] did an X-ray and blood work to find out she had bad lung cancer. We kept her on meds and comfortable.”
