My Dog Has Been Diagnosed With Bone Cancer?

Postby Andonis » Fri Jun 23, 2017 12:33 pm

I just got home from the vet today to find out that my dog has been diagnosed with Bone cancer. He gave me two options. 1 was to amputate which will only give her roughly 5 to 6 months of extra life. Or the other which was to put her down. I have had her for almost 10 years and I am finding it extremely hard to have her go through so much pain and to let her go. Is there anyone else out there that has been through and similar situation? If so how much extra time did you have with your best friend? The last thing I want is for her to suffer. She is my best friend and I don't know what I'd do without her in my life.

only you can know what you think is best for her.
Does she have more good days then bad? does she seem happy? Do things that use to interest her still interest her? As long as she is happy and not in pain, i would say euthanasia is not the answer.
As for amputation, dogs do great with only 3 legs, so do not let that stop you.

This is what happens with pets. Sorry. Dogs usually only live 10-15 years if you're lucky. My cat just died a week ago at 11 years and it was pretty sudden. If you don't want her to suffer, just make the most of your time with her. Never expect a dog or cat, or bird, etc, to outlive you though. It's just the ugly truth, they don't live as long as humans.

I'm 51 and as a kid, had a Beagle that lived to be 16 and she wasn't fed all that great back then.
I had a cat that passed going on 7 years ago that a cancer attacked her aggressively and poof she was gone.
All the pets I've ever had growing up died on their own from age.
Only 2 were ever put to sleep & I won't get into that..

You need to ask yourself this "if you have the leg amputated what quality of life will your dog have? What meds will you need to give your pup for the next 5 to 6 months? Yes, your dog should adjust with only having 3 legs but, you need to ask yourself this, the cost of the amputation and the fact that your Vet said you'll only have 5 to 6 months.
It's a Catch 22 situation here.

You could see if there is a reputable specialist in your area & look for a 2nd opinion.
I myself for the age of the dog would probably elect to have her put to sleep.
Your Vet should allow you to be in the room with her if you want.

I am so sorry to hear about your dog my heart goes out to you .

You have to look at your dogs quality of life ,How is she doing at the moment .Is she managing to cope .Is she needing pain relief .

You need to look at quality of life and be guided by your vet .

But my heart does go out to you .

My Dog Has Been Diagnosed With Bone Cancer?

We adopted a 3 year old great Dane knowing he had cancer in his throat. When we got him he still had his stitches in from the surgery he had to remove the cancer in his throat. We had him for about at year year and a half and we noticed he wasn't gaining much weight and we wasn't like himself. So we took him to the vet and he was diagnosed with cancer in his intestines, I cried. We had him for about 4-5 months before we decided to put him down. He wasn't eating even when we fed him with an injector. We knew we had to put him down when he couldn't walk anymore. It was so sad. I think it depends on the size of the dog on how much time it has left the larger dogs may last longer then a smaller dog. 2 months later another one of my dogs past away within 2 months from I'm pretty sure it was cancer he had the same symptoms as my other dog and he was a smaller dog a cattle dog and he past away in about 2 months. So sad. Spend as much time with your dog as possible and spoil her.

Please don't give up!

I have had great success with a natural approach to eliminate cancer in several dogs. It's very reasonable and easy to implement. Please contact me as it's well worth trying. Just so you understand I don't charge for this. All I want is to collect and document the the results.
