Name: Brenda Ketner
Bio: My husband and I only have fur babies...our dogs (and cats) are our children. We adopted Bella 7 years ago (she's 10) and she is my heart. She was horribly abused when she came into our lives and has the most gentle, loving personality. We lost our first rescue to stage 4 lymphoma 4 years ago, and this diagnosis of osteosarcoma with Bella is breaking my heart.

  1. Tomorrow is Bellas (Great Dane). 1 week post op . Front leg amputation , she has been doing amazing until yesterday . She started with a yelping pain when she puts her front paw down . I sent pics to her vet of the incision, he thought it looked great. I dont know if that is phantom pain or what it is. She wasnt doing good on both Tramadol & Pregablin . They took her off the Tramadol .
