According to our veterinarian, osteosarcoma in this young of a dog is nearly unheard of. Our hearts were aching as we discussed what the next step would be. The median survival time is 22 weeks without treatment. With her being just a puppy, radiation therapy is the best option for means of survival. Fortunately, with radiation this kind of cancer may be curative. However, treatment would have to be done at UC Davis Veterinary Hospital & costs could range from $8,000-$12,000 depending on how many treatments she'll need.
We had been wanting a Belgian Malinois for years and we fell in love with Harper from the moment we adopted her at 8 weeks old. If you know us personally, you know our dogs mean the absolute world to us.
We are reaching out to anyone that can help us save our sweet girl.
Left over funds that are not used towards Harper's treatment will be donated to Reno Veterans Guest House, an exclusively donation based program for veterans and their families in need.
