Hey guys!

Glad I got to listen in the other night to see what it will be like! Maggie's cancer is(was?) soft tissue sarcoma - never got exact type after many special stains/tests.  (I don't believe it's classified as osteosarcoma?  Am I wrong?)

Gina is my sister...who I am VERY grateful was there to help me get thru the first day seeing Maggie after amputation and helped me get thru the 2 weeks of HELL recovery(albiet from long distance).  If it weren't for her, I think I might have gone off the deep end!

oh and PS...Maggie no longer competes in traditional agility as it's too physical for her now but she plays in Rally and downscaled agility obstacles in the Wag It Games, which suits her "tripawd-ness" now 🙂

Talk soon!

Tracy & Maggie

Osteosarcoma (prefix osteo refers to bone) is a bone cancer.
Soft tissue sarcomas are cancers in connective tissues, muscle, nerves, vasculature, etc

Many thanks to Gina and Tracy for an excellent program! Here's some highlights from the show and a widget for streaming the audio or downloading the podcast...

Maggie had her rear left leg amputated due to soft tissue sarcoma on October 20, 2009 and Gina is a licensed veternary techncian with 20 years of experience, working in the holistic vet field for the past nine.

Always consult a professional holistic veterinarian when considering homeopathic treatment for your dog.

Learn about holistic veterinarian Dr. Charles Loops

Maggie did not receive chemotherapy, and took belladonna to reduce fever after her amputation.

Gina discusses various homeopathic pain relief remedies for dogs.

Tracy shops for homeopathic supplements by searching Amazon here.

Read Maggie's canine cancer nutrition plan and her guide to naturally fighting cancer.

Thanks guys!  That was fun!  Both Gina and I enjoyed it! 

I should point out that Maggie is also being treated by Dr. Charles Loops(recommended by Gina as he is a cancer specialist in homeopathics) and has been treated by him since December 2009.  She takes 3 remedies that he chose for her case, rotating with them every day, taken 2X a day.  With each refill, he increases the potency of her remedies.

Directly after amputation, Gina (I refer to her as Dr. Gina even though she isn't, she should be!) is the one that helped me get her through her acute issues with post surgical difficulties by prescribing homeopathics and a supplement to rid her of the ill effects of anesthesia, etc.

Thanks again!

Tracy & Maggie

Good show today everybody- lots of good information.

And Tracy- thanks for speaking for Maggie. When I saw the original post that we would be hearing from Maggie and Gina I thought there would be Gina talking and a lot of barking in the background  big-grin.

Too funny Karen!  Actually, Maggie DID bark prior to going live on the radio and Jim and Rene heard her and asked if she could do that during the show...Gina said that could easily be done by Maggie!  LOL!  little-devil
