🔹OSTEOSARCOMA SPOTLIGHT: DIAGNOSTICS 🔹
🦴The majority of dogs with leg osteosarcoma will have no visible signs of metastasis when they are first diagnosed to the lungs on chest X-rays before surgery. This is what we want to see.

💊What is the easiest way to give your dog a pill? What foods in your kitchen are most helpful to get those pills down? Here's a sneak peak to my new vlog on how to increase your success of getting medications into your pet.
💊Giving oral medications to your pet can be a challenge for many pet parents. Fortunately, pilling a pet is not an impossible task once you learn a few tricks.
💊Plus, when your pet absolutely won't take a pill in food, we show you how to pill your pet.
- PLEASE never try to administer a pill forcefully to a dog or cat with a painful mouth or neck.
- If your pet is growling or becomes fearful, STOP and abort the pilling mission.
- Even if the medication is important for your pet’s health well-being, it is best to use good judgment and avoid getting bit.
- Please contact your veterinarian who prescribed the medication for additional recommendations about what to do if you cannot get the medication in.
💊Good luck! Thanks for watching. And please let me know if this was helpful and do not forget to subscribe on YouTube. xo
