Bio:

Lucy is our 6 year old lab/border collie mix. She is always so full of life!! Around the first of Nov 2011 Lucy started with a slight limp. On 11/11/11 she had her first visit to the vet where she was given rimadyl and tramadol. Tramadol knocked her out so we slowed down the dose but the rimadyl didn't seem to make a difference. After an MRI it was recommended Lucy have her front right leg amputated, it is believed a nerve sheath tumor is causing the limp. The MRI was inconclusive but 10 yrs of experience this vet is sure it's there and undetected. Oh so hard for us humans. We think Lucy is a trooper. On 12/19/11 Lucy's front right leg was amputated. No tumor, no cancer, degenerative nerves. Amputation was still the only option. After three years Lucy is still going strong!

Lucy's front right leg was amputated 12/19/11. Thankfully there was no tumor, but her nerves were found to be degenerative.  Life as a tripawd is Lucy's new adventure!!
