I am new to the forum but have been reading it for over a month.  My 8 year old beagle, Hoss started limping slightly about 6 weeks ago.  I immediately took him to the vet and medicine was prescribed.  A week late he wasn't getting any better so I took him in for x-rays.  They revealed a lesion right in the middle of his femur.  This puzzeled the vet because a) it was in the wrong spot and b) beagles aren't  known for getting osteosarcoma.  The location of the lesion made in difficult to get a biopsy and after two tries I got the results today and indeed in it OS.  I am absolutely devistated.  I was there when his mommy gave birth to him and he has never left my side.  He even goes to work with me every day.  I have already scheduled him to have his leg amputated tomorrow.  They want to x-ray his chest first  to see if it has spread.  If it has I am left with a tough decision.  I wanted to thank everyone who has posted on this board.  I have read some of the most inspirational stories and have been brought to tears many times.  I will continue to update as Hoss and I have vowed to fight this to the very end.

Thanks for joining the discussion Hoss! We understand what you're going through and send best wishes for clear x-rays, a flawless procedure, and speedy complete recovery.

The shock of cancer in our furry friends is indeed heartbreaking. The incredible speed in which life changing decisions must be made is no help either. Just remain strong, trust your instincts, and never look back.
