Hi all,

I wanted to share some very good news. Toby has a rear amputation back in November of 2018 for likely osteosarcoma. They never were able to be 100% on the diagnosis even after running multiple tests so it may have been a more rare sarcoma. We chose not to do chemo and have been working with Dr. Loops with the homeopathic remedies. I am pleased to say that Toby is doing great! He is a happy dog. He’s 6 years old and not super active but he goes on short walks and runs in the yard but never for long stretches. We are so happy that he is still with us and enjoy him every day! Thank you so much to this website. You helped give me strength when I was so scared and worried about what choices to make. You also helped encourage me during his recovery which was rough. I actually think it’s harder for us pet parents than the pets. Anyway, I just want to say thank you! smiley4

WOWWWW! Toby, you are amaaaaazing! I'm so hoppy to know that life is good and you are rockin' three legs! sp_hearticon2smiley_clap

You have no idea how much we needed this good news to share, thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking time to post. Toby's pupdate lit up our day and we are elated for you both. YAAAY! 

Dr. Loops is incredible isn't he? If you feel like sharing the protocol Toby is on, we would love to know more about what is keeping your boy going so strong and happy.

Give him some extra belly rubs from us, we are thrilled for this great news!

YAAAAAAY FOR THE ADORABLE TOBY!!!  It just lights up my world to hear how well he is doing!!

Toby is an inspaw for some many reasons.  As you know, some do chemo and some don't.   We always like to share stories of the pips who beat the odds without  chemo.  Toby just became  a Tripawd Legend around here!!!

You know we jave to jave pictures, right?  We'll be waiting.😉
