Yesterday was Levi's 6th and final chemo treatment - yay!
He is still so very much himself, so we are confident that we've made the right decisions. Here's a vid of him just a few days ago:
He is still getting ImYunity and eating better than us (currently Honest Kitchen meals). Happy Boy!
(more on Levi, if anybody wants to read it: http://tripawds.....awd-to-be/)
Levi was diagnosed w/likely osteosarcoma at 7.5 years old in 7/2015 and became a Tripawd on 9/11/15. Loved life until he broke one of his front legs on 2/12/17. As x-rays showed clean bone, we decided to repair the leg. He recovered well, but in June of 2017, started to limp on the same leg. X-Rays showed return of OSA in the front leg. Levi crossed the rainbow bridge on 7/20/17, after over 22 months as a happy Tripawd.

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

He looks great! And congrats on finishing chemo too, wonderful to get that done.
and eating better than us (currently Honest Kitchen meals). Happy Boy!
Same deal here! I cook chicken, eggs and burger and mix it with HK for my pups, meanwhile we enjoyed a bag of pre-prepared something out of the freezer for dinner.
