Has soft tissue sarcoma in his front right leg. We are thinking of amputation as the tumor is growing quickly. According to our Vet our dog presents as a younger dog and Cancer is confined to leg only. He's already gone through radiation about 1 1/2 year ago. Thoughts?

Hello and welcome. Your future posts won't require approval so post away.

What's your dog's name? While we wait for Dr. Pam to give her input, be sure to  check out the Size and Age Matters Forum where there are many stories of senior dogs. 

It sounds like your dog is a good candidate for surgery according to your vet, which is terrific. If you are still concerned, getting an opinion on your dog's situation from an orthopedic surgeon may help put your mind at ease.

Sorry to keep this short but I have to run. We look forward to learning more about your dog.

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

As long as pre-op blood and chest xrays are normal I would go ahead.
