|PLEASE... make sure your vet does the complete body scans prior to amputation. My friend's GSD has his leg amputated, the biopsy report was very good (slow growing tumor, amputation should cure it), BUT, it was already in his lungs and liver and he died within a few weeks of the amputation. My own shepherd went thru a difficult spleen removal for a bleeding tumor and was also not properly scanned prior to the surgery and he was diagnosed with lung, liver and stomach tumors just five weeks later. In both cases these surgeries should not have been done, they only added further stress and agony to an already dying dog. Had we known these cancers had already spread we would have never agreed to the invasive surgeries. Good luck with your boy!!!|
