we are so bummed right now, especially my dh......our dog has had a large tumor on her front left leg.......we chalked it up as a fatty tumor for most of this year...I took her to our vet a couple months ago & he referred us to a specialist.......wellllll, I saw a doggie Oncologist yesterday & we went back again today for a biopsy....they won't have the results until the end of next week to tell the degree of the malignancy, but, because of the size, they are already suggesting amputating her leg......welllll, she is my dh's baby, he's had her for 15 years...so we are probably going to put her down instead of putting her through an amputation or radiation ....we're still going to wait until the test results are in......................but, needless to say, it's a sad house here right now

thanks for letting me ramble

Oh Sara, I am so sorry. I know what you are going through. My dog has cancer of the nose. We caught it early and now he is on prednazone. Dr. thinks that will take care of it. So we'll see. I hope things go well for you. I'll keep you all in my prayers.

Poor puppy. I'm sorry for you guys... Pets are part of the family and it's hard to make a dicision like this when you love them so much. Big hugs to you girl!
