… 

I realise that this thread is over a year old, however I'm very interested in finding out if you ever figured out if any centers in Europe offer cyberknife treatment? 

….  Zolendronate has a small risk of side effects.... I think because simon plays so hard that this can benefit the weakening of the area that the cyberknife radiation caused..   thoughts?   I read that dogs can stay on this indefinitely  and that it might kill cancer cells locally and prevent mets to

…)

Nevertheless if it was now I might have considered cyber knife radiation.

I am not sure if I would have gone for it in the end because with cyberknife you keep the leg which means primary tumour is still there albeit being zapped with radiation.

Luke went for cyberknife so he’d be the right

…dogs (within what is acceptable to share because of confidentiality clause, of course)

Regarding Simon, he said if he had been in his hands for cyberknife he would have offered to extract 5mm of the affected bone whilst he was under anaesthesia for radio.

His opinion is there is virtually no chance

…that part of his life to be behind him now?

Another idea: are there any clinics nearby that can do stereotactic radiation therapy (SRT i.e., "cyberknife")? SRT cuts the usual radiation treatment times by more than half, which means less visits and less anesthesia.  

This is a good thought. I

…read on a post in this tread that some dog had cyberknife when mets spread to the lungs?  on the lungs?  How did that turn out?  I ask bec I'd like to be prepared.  Simon had cyberknife on the knee…

…instead of amp... He should soon get the vax off trial. Since I'm experienced with cyberknife already, I d like to know this option.  anyone done this?

…heard from the vet?

What kind of radiation therapy is available in your area? If you have access to stereotactic radiation therapy (aka SRT or "cyberknife"), it's a relatively quick, targeted treatment that has little impact on quality of life. If you don't have any clinics with SRT and your vets

…hrs  is far,,, but it is 3 consec days,  a few hours each day,,, . I had no biopsy done..  just  x rays that are clearly suggestive... cyberknife doesn't cut, its just targeted strong radiation,,that zooms in on one targeted area and spares healthy areas  ,, I am unsure of the needed quality of

…for Sure? Did they do a biopsy of the bone? 

She has to work tomorrow can't go.

There has to be a certain quality of bone left for the cyberknife right?

The closest place to us that does it is 10 hrs away by philly.

…you bring mom to the vet appt?.. she would quickly join your team,, I suspect and would be honored to attend?   I didnt do the amp.. I did cyberknife radiation as my dog has hip dysplasia on the rt rear and osteo is in the left rear.. It is more expensive... after consulting with the onco vet,…

…. we agreed that even though he recommended the amputation,   my choice,, the cyberknife radiation.. was  ALMOST equal in doing the best for my dog. and he was fine with that choice. ( I do have pet insurance which makes this easier

…radiation oncologist suggested amputation,,,,when I asked about the cyberknife  ( 3 treatments done in 3 consecutive days) he agreed that the outcome would be quite similar to amputation,,,, this is what I did... left rear…

…femur..(  interestingly enough,.. I believe I read that 15 radiation treatments are equal to 3 cyberknifes?  )  cyberknife is expensive  aprox 11-12k

…that my specialist didn't do a cytology or biopsy because the x rays were so clear that the diagnosis is osteosarcoma..  I didn't amputate,, I did cyberknife radiation that hopefully killed all the cancer,,  My problem:  to get the vaccine,, even off-trial, you either need a cytology or biopsy.showing

…ve been advocating that my dog get many zolendronate treatments.in addition to 6 chemo sessions. His left femur was heavily radiated via cyberknife for osteo sarcoma of the distal femur..  A second opinion oncology vet.. part of the vaccine study. wasn't so sure about many zoldendronate

…was the easiest course, and he could knock it out quickly vs. a more involved surgical limb spare.  He also said he wasn't impressed with the cyberknife radiation and bisphosphanates were not impressive either.  I don't know, does he fear for his future with new advances?  :).  I understand the

…amputation and Taylor lived another 23 more months and was a very active dog even on the day Mark chose to say good bye. 

A coworker of mine did cyberknife 14 months ago on his husky mix and the tumor started growing again 2 weeks ago so they amputated last Monday.  Lungs are still clear and other limbs

…and welcome! 

I am not really all the knowledgeable with cyberknife but in terms of amputation: 

it is pretty standard to have x-rays taken before surgery. Usually they check the lungs and maybe the spine. I…

…have not heard of checking the other limbs but maybe that's specific to cyberknife

We did chemo after amputation because I was told then that it would better the chances of a longer survival. We didn't run into any problems
