This video is sad but inspiring because my beloved best friend Shasta the Great Dane was diagnosed with bone cancer as well. She was given 6 months to live. It is very devastating to know that she will die in 6 months or less.
That's great! Bella has an unidentified growth on one of her hind feet. It started out small – we thought it might be a cyst – but has gotten much bigger (about the size of 2 golf balls) and is causing her pain – she will occasionally go all day without putting weight on it. A biopsy came back negative for cancer, so the vet thinks it's a bony mass. He thought he might be able to just remove one toe, but x-rays eliminated that option. If we decide for surgery, it would be a full leg amputation.
Immediately after surgery she wanted to everything on her own. Aside the from the initial pain of the surgery and wound recovery, she was normal. Getting used to three legs was not an issue and within 2 months she was just as mobile as before minus some stamina. We would definitely recommend it if it is needed. What is wrong with your dog? Sissy is still with us, almost 9 now! Still loves a good run and does stairs by herself.
Great video…we have a 6-year old female Great Dane who will likely also need to have one of her hind legs amputated. How was the surgery/recovery process?
