Osa- help-any & all advice

my neiko puppy has osteosarcoma. he was diagnosed on his 5th birthday this year 11-5-12. it hurts me to see him this way and to know what the future holds. he is on tramadol for pain 3x a day. he is limping around as he has a tumor in his right wrist. awful! i want to keep him as long as i can but i want him to be comfortable. he seems happy with any attention he is getting. happy to be around us. i want to know when it is time i should think about letting go. what am i in for?

I am so sorry to hear this in a pup so young. We lost our boy Wolf o little over weeks ago with OSA in the exact sq,cplace. He was on tramodol and rymadyl which seemed to help the swelling and pain for about 6 weeks but all are different

I encourage you to hug him a bit tighter and love on him any more if that is possible. We had the challenge of days when Wolf felt good trying to curtail his actions to prevent fractures

I would also suggest seeing an oncologist as many times amputation is an option. Have you had chest X-rays to see if it has spread to his lungs

PM if you need to talk as this is a painful disease and again I can't say how sorry I am for this diagnosis. Reading your post took me back to the day we found out and I cry with you.

I'm so sorry. I just lost my boy, Simon, to OSA. Due to his age (about 10) and some other complicating factors, we chose not to amputate and instead did hospice care - pain management. He was on tramadol and meloxicam. We also did an artemisinin regimen. We got a little over two months before we let him go. I'm really sorry you are going through this. You might want to join the Yahoo group Bone Cancer Dogs; I found them to be wonderfully supportive and a great source of information.
