Last week I found out my dog Saci was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a very aggressive form of bone cancer. She developed a bad limp, so we had taken her in for hip and knee x-rays to see if she was a candidate for ACL surgery and to our surprise the results showed something far more unfortunate. She has a large tumor that has fractured the top of her femur--the actual reason for her limp. Over the past few days she has been to two specialists and the prognosis has been to amputate not only her leg but part of her pelvis as well as the tumor is located so high up her leg. After that, she'll be receiving six chemo treatments to hopefully subdue the remaining cancer cells. My main concern when making the decision to go ahead with this was providing her with a quality of life going forward. Even after the invasive procedure, her pain level will drastically decrease, and her spirits will remain as high as ever.
For those of you who haven't met her, Saci is one of the most fun loving dogs you'll ever meet and those of you who are her friends, you can absolutely attest to this.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Matt and Saci
