my 8 year old Doberman had his leg amputated early October 2018. He is healing and getting along nicely. I noticed him excessively itching at his face with both paws and he whines while he does it; as though he’s in pain. It’s weird, he’s never done it before. Should I be concerned? We switched his food so maybe it’s an allergy thing because he does have food allergies, but I’ve never seen him do this face thing before. Just wondering if the bone cancer in his leg could have spread to skull. Does anyone have this experience?

That’s wonderful that he’s doing so well overall, but I think anytime you are concerned about a behavior it’s time to see the vet. This could be any number of non-serious things that your vet is probably familiar with and able to treat.

And in my non-vet opinion it’s highly unlikely that the osteosarcoma moved to the skull, I don’t believe we’ve ever seen that happen here. But again, let your vet know what’s going on so you can rule this out OK? And keep us posted.

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