After going to the vet because our pitty Patches developed a minor - but consistent limp on his left front leg, Patches was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rapidly spreading cancer. Our vet informed us that most dogs only have 1-3 months after diagnosis and by the time the cancer is found it has usually spread. My husband and I are devastated; Patches, the stoic dog he is, just thinks he has a sore leg. Patches is 8 (almost 9) years old; a rescue pitbull who has lived the best life a dog could ask for and my husband and I are determined to continue providing the best care possible for him. We've opted to have a consultation with a oncologist, so we know how advance the cancer is and if it has spread. We don't know what is best for our baby and have never had to make such difficult decisions before. If anyone has gone through any similar experiences - osteosarcoma, amputation, chemo or radiation therapy- , we would greatly appreciate any advice or support.
