Not only is she a great writer and a pawesome vet, we are thrilled to announce that Dr. Sarah Boston's new limb sparing (shortening) surgical procedure is now published and ready for prime time! 

Limb shortening as a strategy for limb sparing treatment of appendicular osteosarcoma of the distal radius in a dog.

A 14-year-old, female spayed Labrador Retriever with an osteosarcoma of the right distal radius and a pathological fracture. A previous mast cell tumor had been treated 5 years prior to presentation with marginal excision and a full-course radiation over the right metacarpal bones. The dog had received 2 doses of palliative radiation just prior to presentation.

And a video showing the patient:

Early next year we will have Dr. Boston on Tripawd Talk Radio to discuss the procedure in more detail. This is exciting stuff!

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