Zuki is a 9.5yr old 100lb White GSD. He has endured 2 cruciate ligament ops, 1 in 2013 with a TTA repair and the other leg in 2015 with a TPLO repair. In May 2016 he was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in his hind left leg. We opt’d for amputation in June and will start Chemo with Carboplatin next week. I was really concerned that amputating his leg to leave him holding his weight on the TTA repair would be too much of a strain but we plan to start physio and hydrotherapy in the next few weeks to help maintain his strength and endurance. Please read my blog to follow our journey. I hope it helps you with the situation you find yourself in. Its hard to believe there is so many of us going through similar things, but the experience and support in this site is invaluable
