Our Rottweiler had rear amputation three weeks ago. After surgery vet said they found no cancer in lymph nodes for which we are most grateful. However I’m not sure what that means as far as chemo consideration. 

Here and Now

Chemotherapy is always optional, and many things factor into that decision. Most importantly, would be the type of cancer, and whether chest/body scans indicate if it has visibly spread to the lungs or other organs. For instance, osteosarcoma is much more aggressive and tends to metastasize to the lungs first. Other “bulky” type tumors like chondrosarcoma do not tend to respond to chemo.

Tell us more about your pup. Whats his (her?) name? The more details you can give, the better feedback others can provide.
