welcome!! poor oscar, having to go through all of that pain and such, when that leg was obviously wanting to be gone. he will do fine on three legs - although we'd recommend you keep him a little confined/controlled for the next two weeks until the incision is healed and sutures are out. the pain meds can make our pups loopy, and it takes a (More)

    This just shows how lpving and forgiving dogs can be REGARDLESS of what cruelty they endure at the hands of sickos!

    Darla and son, you have shown River what it feels like to be loved and to be safe! Yiu are Saints!!

    Thanks you so much for sharing this inspirational story with us. River has touched our hearts forever. I do hope you’ll come back and continue to share more pictures and stories of this resilient special soul!

    Love and hugs to all!

  2. Our black lab Coalie just recently had her front right leg amputated 5 days ago and she has some clear drainage. It doesn’t have a terribly foul odar but it does smell like a fresh wound. She licks the site constantly! She will not eat, bark or even make a sound. I’m concerned since we have a hard time getting her to even take her meds. I worry about her getting depressed as well as getting an infection. The only thing she will eat it ice (which I think is crazy but at least she is not dehydrated) I thought about freezing pedialyte in icetrays for her and maybe even putting chicken or fish in them so she will maybe eat the frozen cubes with food. She broke her leg on the 8th and it became so inflamed and infected under the bandage that they wanted to either put her down or take her leg. We couldn’t even bear the thought of putting our girl down, she’s our 8 year old fur baby.

    • Jackie, we’re so sorry to hear about Coalie. It sounds like a normal drainage, but let your vet know. Dogs love the taste of the stuff, which is probably why she’s licking. Gross, I know!

      It’s a great sign she’s eating ice cubes, lots of people have a hard time getting their dog to do that, so yay! You could definitely freeze the pedialyte or gatorade in there, and heck why not try the fish? I think others have done similar things, freezing cooked food, etc. so let us know how it works. And please, come to the forums where lots more of us can better help you OK? See you there!

    Wondering if I can talk with Murphy’s mom or dad or anyone else with a beloved dog with Histiocytic sarcoma. My sweet Buggs is scheduled for surgery in just three days. He has apparently Histiocytic sarcoma on the top of a paw and at this point the vets don’t think it is anywhere else. The plan is to remove the tumor and as much around it as possible and take the lymph node out above it. A needle aspirate from that node was negative for cancer but they explained a needle aspiration can miss cells so they will remove it and examine it further. They felt amputation was perhaps not necessary at this point but in reading about how aggressive this cancer is and its prognosis, I am having such anxiety thinking this is a one shot thing and maybe the planned surgery is not enough. This surgery will be $3,000 to $4,000 dollars which I gladly will come up with. But I also don’t want to put him through a second surgery a couple weeks later. Just so torn. Don’t want to have his leg amputated if it really is not necessary but don’t want to risk losing him either. Want him to have the best chance possible…Just need to talk to someone who has been there. Soon. Thanks. So need of help ASAP. Ellen

  4. Today Andy mowed the fields in prep for all the doggies . Four and a half weeks and counting………

  5. Wow, what a great idea. I had no idea you guys were doing this. I’d like to help but I wasn’t a tripawd pawrent very long so probably have not accrued as much wisdom as others. I can remember when my Maggie was diagnosed I called Rene and I think Michele with Bruno. It helped so much to talk with someone. Great idea Tripawds Nation.

    • Penny I think there are many ways you can help people. You’ve dealt with the shock of a diagnosis and you’ve dealt with end-of-life situations, which are the two areas where we’ll probably receive the most calls. If you want to give it a try I know you’d be great at it, you’re so easy to talk to.

  6. I can’t wait to help! If I can offer only a tenth of the kindness and compassion offered to me, then I will feel that I have honored my Spirit Shelby!

  7. Stellar roll-out! Great way for the Tripawds Community to support those facing the uncertainties of this journey.

    Gratefully,

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle too!

    PS…love the pics! :-)

  8. Can’t wait to help out. :)

    Hugs

  9. So excited that this service is finally here! The link to the forum post for info on being a helper isn’t working though. :(

  10. Samson got some extra bonus time to soak up the sun rays and get snuggles and chin scratches. Yeah, it was quality time that he wouldn’t change for anytime!

    Samson and Cleo are together now frolicking at the Bridge.and lazing the sun…..and enjoying being your Guardians!

    They both had wonderful loves with you and knew what love felt like as a result.

    Love

  11. I went to give my 8 year old Snorkie a Benedryl 2 weeks ago and found tumors in her mouth. Vet gave us Prednisone to see if it would shrink them. So far I can’t see any changes other than the weight gain and non stop urination. She is still as sweet as ever. He didn’t give us much hope, so I think the medicine was to give us time to come to terms with losing her. I still can’t believe it. I was counting on another 10 years with my baby.

    • Ruth,
      Please take your Snorkie for a second opinion…Maybe you did not include a lot of detail in your letter here – and I don’t know the whole story, but, just in case, I would take her somewhere else just to be sure. Best of luck.
      -Kat

  12. Jerie I hope your pup has many good days ahead. Treasure each moment and love him up. Give him a smooch from Tripawds.

  13. Yes our 14 year old min pincher has been diagnosed with lymphoma 1 week ago. He has been very sick. Not himself at all. The vet put him on pregnasone and is doing better. Drinks a lot and urinate non stop. The vet explained to us that there is no cure, but might extend his life a bit longer to give us time to prepare for the good byes. It has been the most difficult decision to let him go. We lost another dog 3 months ago. After reading the comments I reliazed now it is just a matter of time before we loose him. It is so sad!
    My heart goes to anyone else going thru the same. Stay strong!

  14. CANNOT WAIT!!! The effort put into this is super duper exceptionally generous of all the behind the scenes people!!

    I’m glad you mentioned those “pens”.My dogs have never been in a crate before, so I’m going to start practicing now!

    Mich love to all!

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and wild and crazy Frankie!

  15. Good news indeed!! “Independent Charlie” is made of some pretty strong stuff!!
