We are currently looking at next steps in terms of treatment options. I have found a great resource online that gives different treatment options for a chance of long term survival.  

https://www.ccr.....unotherapy

this is a great resource that I wish I would’ve found before doing the amputation. Most of the immunotherapy treatments require  cancer tissue removal during surgery so they can create a personalized vaccine that will help your pet create an immune response to the cancer. It is not a one size fits all and all pets will respond differently.

 There are also many clinical trials with universities that can help cover some cost and potentially provide a life saving treatment. The results in some of the clinical trial studies really give hope .

I really hope this helps newly and existing diagnosed with this horrible disease.

Thanks so much, Andres! However, the link you sent appears to be broken. Based on what you listed I went sleuthing and found this (is it what you had in mind?): 

https://ccr.can.....ram/trials

BTW - a few days ago someone pointed out to me that the Yale vaccine trial doesn't require a tumor sample. Also, if you have a MedVet branch in your area they often host trials in addition to any being done at a nearby university with a veterinary program.
