Chance is gorgeous!  She is sitting in the same spot of the lounge that my Magnum claimed for herself on our lounge.  Good luck with the trial.  It sounds like it has lots of promise to buy you and Chance precious extra time.

Magnum: 30th May 2002 to 5th May 2012. Lost her back left leg to osteosarcoma on 5th Sep 2011. Lung mets found on 20th Mar 2012 but it was bone mets in the hip that ended her brave battle. Magnum's motto - "Dream as if you'll live for ever, live as if you'll die today" (James Dean). Loyal, loving, courageous and spirited to the end. My beloved heart dog, see her memoirs from Rainbow Bridge ...... http://princess.....pawds.com/

Glad you were able to find another option for Chance if amp was not possible. I hope she'll have the same response as Sadie. It's great that you have hope again.

All the best and keep us posted on how it goes,

Jackie, Angel Abby's mom

Abby: Aug 1, 2009 – Jan 10, 2012. Our beautiful rescue pup lived LARGE with osteosarcoma for 15 months – half her way-too-short life. I think our "halflistic" approach (mixing traditional meds + supplements) helped her thrive. (PM me for details. I'm happy to help.) She had lung mets for over a year. They took her from us in the end, but they cannot take her spirit! She will live forever in our hearts. She loved the beach and giving kisses and going to In-N-Out for a Flying Dutchman.

Sorry you find yourself with us.  I hope this trial works very well for Chance since he isn't a candidate.

Good thoughts coming your way.
