3 Responses to “Ouch.”

  1. We have a golden retriever, who has had a xrays, blood report and biospy done to confirm/eliminate bone cancer. He had no other signs, than sudden pain in leg when he took off running one day. The distal tibia xrays showed a lytic bone lesion, suspected of osteosarcoma. However, a week after the biospy, there is a slight, but painful fracture of the leg, the biopsy came back inconclusive – “some spindle cells atypia and some bone matrix, possibly osteosarcoma, but it is not definite”.
    We’re in a Jam and need to make a decision urgently, vet says better to amputate now, as bone may not heal. Though they’re not conclusive it definitely is osteosarcoma. We did the biopsy to hopefully avoid amputation if it wasn’t osteosarcoma. Now, we’re faced with having to certainly amputate because of the fracture.
    Would appreciate any thoughts/suggestions..

  2. I have a quite large male tripawd whippet. Back leg amputated. Could you please advise as to which harness would be most suitable. He wears a soft coat when it’s cold so would a harness fit on top of this?.

  3. Hello. My dog Santo just got diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on his front leg. He is 6 years-old, it seems that he is a good candidate for amputation.
    My biggest concern is the overall cost. We may be able to difficulty manage the amputation cost. But there’s no way we can do chemo and amputation.
    I read everywhere that if don’t do chemo right after it most likely be a “waste” of money and trauma.
    Any thoughts?

    • Azul and Santo, welcome. We’re sorry about the diagnosis but please don’t listen to the people telling you that amputation only is a waste of time. It is most definitely NOT and it’s one of the best things you can do to help Santo. Amputation gets rid of the pain and gives him a chance at a good quality of life. Chemo is OPTIONAL, never forget that. Our own dog Jerry (founder of Tripawds) lived TWO YEARS with amputation only and we’ve seen many other dogs who also didn’t have chemo go much longer.

      Santo doesn’t want you to be stressed about money. If amputation is what you can afford then that’s OK by him. All he wants is to feel better and for you to be happy.
