Surgery for Bone Cancer?
A cheery Wednesday to you all!!
I came back from vacation to a pile of work, including having to amputate a dog’s leg due to a tumor.
It was a type of bone cancer, and Jack was no longer able to walk.
He was an older dog (10 years) so the decision to remove his leg was a difficult one for his guardian….and controversial.
What would you do?
It’s not an easy decision..
Anesthetic and surgery has risks, although Jack did well with surgery.
Then there is the recovery time after having a major surgery.
The Cost is another factor.
Would you put your dog through this?
If Jack had not had surgery, then he would likely have been euthanized later this week.
My point of all of this is that it is NEVER a black and white decision, and you have to weigh in all of the factors.
Is this the BEST choice for Jack?..I don’t know, and it ultimately depends if the cancer has spread, and he has is able to live the remainder of his life pain free.
I would love to hear your comments on this.
P.S. Clearly the BEST thing is to do ALL that you can to AVOID cancer.
