Tune In Here: The Tale of Three Tripawds


Join us for a conversation with three Tripawd Dog Moms as they share their unique experiences with amputation surgery, recovery and cancer care for their three legged dogs.

Meet Lori, mom to Chuck, a 175-lb Saint Bernard diagnosed with osteosarcoma in June 2013. Lori will call us from her home in Illinois and talk about the factors that led to choosing palliative pain-management care over amputation.

Read about Chuck

You'll also meet Linda, mom to Tucker, a handsome young Chocolate Lab from Ontario Canada who lost his leg last September from an invasive but localized sarcoma on his front right leg.

Read about Tucker

And last but never least, Tripawd Mom Karma will join us from her home in Georgia to discuss what it was like to make the amputation decision when her 12-year old Brendol was diagnosed with osteosarcoma.

Read about Brendol
