🔹Osteosarcoma Spotlight: Treatment 🔹
🦴 Amputation is a shocking thing to consider for pet owners for their pet. Many owners are reasonably overwhelmed thinking about removing a pet's leg.
I have a VLOG on YouTube where I break it all down for you, including what to expect at surgery, the recovery, and how well dogs recover and adapt. And I will go over high owner satisfaction rates.
I know it's not an easy decision, but I hope this information helps.
📹 Check out the full Vlog here:

💯 Belle’s family did the right thing. They noticed she was limping and quickly took her to the vet for X-rays.
😊They also thankfully got her pet insurance as a puppy.
🦴 Remember that if you have a large or giant breed dog with lameness and swelling on a limb, take your dog to a vet for X-rays as soon as possible because they are at increased risk for osteosarcoma. Early diagnosis is so important!
☢️ Like Belle’s veterinarian, your vet will take X-rays which often confirm the suspicion for osteosarcoma, the most common primary bone cancer.
👩⚕️Today, when I met sweet Belle, I ran blood work, did 3 view chest X-rays to check for metastasis spread, and got new limb X-rays to double check about whether she is a candidate for limb spare surgery.
🦴 Her tumor is in a location (distal radius) where we can consider limb-spare surgery instead of amputation. And the awesome surgeon where I work at does them. Then we follow surgery with chemotherapy with me.
