Huck and cancer

A few days ago I heard Huck rattling in his kennel and a few seconds later he appeared dangling his back right leg.

After sedation, X-rays, and a splint he was sent home with a “simple” fracture and instructions to have splint changed in a week. The next morning we were called by the University of MN stating the radiologist saw an “aggressive lesion” at the fracture site and to return to surgery department for further testing.

Yesterday he was sedated, needle biopsied to r/o osteosarcoma, chest X-ray for metastasis and resplinted.

Today came the news:

Still waiting on some results but what we do know is that it’s cancer. Initially they thought it would be a osteosarcoma but they are having difficulty determining if it’s that or another type of cancer.

They see evidence of osteosarcoma but also an even more aggressive Hemangiosarcoma. So they are sourcing his slides out for third and fourth opinion.

If osteosarcoma and no metastasis,
then amputation and chemo with life expectancy about a year. If metastasis then amputation and six months.

If Hemangiosarcoma without metastasis then amputation and chemo for 6-8 months expectancy. If with metastasis then comfort care which could include amputation and only a few months.

It may be next week before we know which cancer and what stage.

He’s scheduled for amputation on 12-5, if we decide to proceed with that.

Tough diagnosis--any kind of bone cancer hard on the dog--bone cancers are VERY painful. Makes the decisions hard too.

So sorry to hear about this--good luck to you and Huckelberry on this one.

I’ve had to make many of decisions for many pets, but all of them had lived a very long life. I never expected to have to make this for him at six years old. The albinos, maybe, but not him...

C-Berry --- This has been hard for to read - I look at the picture of Huck and it just rip's my heart out - But I put up a tread on Ali , Our 11 year old girl - The tread title is Need your thoughts-- Ideas --- Ali had a non aggressive type cancer - It was a very difficult decision on post opp. treatments or if to do any This also covered radiation treatments - I got to thinking about your situation and thought - it might help you in your time of need - I leaned hard on the posters of this site - of ideas - thoughts - what they would do and so on - They did not fail us and lots of great advise - I think if you read our story - and all the replies - it may help you some - I hope anyway .
