Name: Amy
Bio: I live in Michigan, have rescued 4 French Bulldogs since 2008, 3 with very little to no problems & now I just rescued little Neuman in July, he was 6 months old. He has to have his left front leg amputated. His previous owners, thought he was limping around due to one of their bigger dogs stepping in his paw. He really had a 4-6 week old fracture & his leg stopped stopped growing. (Really, they never took him to.the vet, EVER 6 months old, limping in pain, grr) He has a a 2 year old Frenchie sister, Stella & thankfully she likes him.

Yes that is him & today its a good thing he is so cute, both my dogs were so naughty. Stella is teaching him bad habits. (My mom laughed & said "just like you did to your brother"lol). The vet said to stay home for 2 weeks with him. That's a long time with basically 2 puppies (Stella just turned 2). I've been dropping not suttle hints to m (More)

  1. I have a quite large male tripawd whippet. Back leg amputated. Could you please advise as to which harness would be most suitable. He wears a soft coat when it’s cold so would a harness fit on top of this?.

  2. Hello. My dog Santo just got diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on his front leg. He is 6 years-old, it seems that he is a good candidate for amputation.
    My biggest concern is the overall cost. We may be able to difficulty manage the amputation cost. But there’s no way we can do chemo and amputation.
    I read everywhere that if don’t do chemo right after it most likely be a “waste” of money and trauma.
    Any thoughts?

    • Azul and Santo, welcome. We’re sorry about the diagnosis but please don’t listen to the people telling you that amputation only is a waste of time. It is most definitely NOT and it’s one of the best things you can do to help Santo. Amputation gets rid of the pain and gives him a chance at a good quality of life. Chemo is OPTIONAL, never forget that. Our own dog Jerry (founder of Tripawds) lived TWO YEARS with amputation only and we’ve seen many other dogs who also didn’t have chemo go much longer.

      Santo doesn’t want you to be stressed about money. If amputation is what you can afford then that’s OK by him. All he wants is to feel better and for you to be happy.

      Please join us in the discussion forums for help from members OK? We are here for you both.
