As far as the study / clinical trial she was in for the amputation:  They said its is still an open study and they do not have any results yet. I do not have anything to compare it to,  but she did not seem to be in  pain and recovered fast and well!

Yes that is the study. She is going to do Chemo on Monday, at UC Davis. I hope that goes well. 

I have not taken here swimming yet.

Nice! I just got contacted by the lead researcher for the study and hope to have an interview with her published soon. Thanks for the tip!

UCD is such an amazing place, they're literally the #1 vet school in the world. You are so lucky to be working with them! Don't worry, she's in great hands.

Way to go! That's such a relief! Cheers to more easy peasy chemotherapy sessions. Thanks for the pupdate!

P.S. Be sure to spoil her with some extra smooches from all of us 🙂

Sadie has been doing really good. But on Tuesday after her walk she started limping on her left rear leg (same side as amputation) 🙁

Hopefully it is just a sprain. She is going in for her second Chemo on Monday. I informed the Doctor and she said they will defiantly check her leg.
