CT scans today.

Ok so we saw the vet today and Barney had his CT scans and unfortunately the cancer has done too much damage to his leg that they cannot save it but on the plus side the lungs have come up clear, the vet wants to get them double checked by a colleague and if it’s all good then he will book him in for the amputation next week. It’s still sad but if it gives us longer with Barney and he is happy and healthy then it’s got be done. Here’s hoping 🤞 Friday brings good news about the scans. Positive thoughts all the way.

    For whatever it’s worth, you have EXACTLY the right attitude that Barney needs surrounding him as he heals! You are mastering the art of BEING MORE DOG perfectly!!

    Continue to stay connected! Recovery is rough for the first couple of weeks. After that though, you will be amazed how good Barney feels to have that bum leg gone!! 🙂

    Let us know when surgery is scheduled….and stock up on CHOCOLATE! Barney will have pain meds to get through recovery, you’ll have chocolate!

    Sorry to hear of Barney’s cancer, but stay on this site. Much knowledge and good advise.
    Hope all goes well. Keep posting.

    I have a 9.5 year old Rottweiler who went into amputation a fluffy 105 lbs. As we left from amputation, she weighed 93 lbs. They stressed getting her weight down to help leg, and this week she weighed 78.6 at her recheck. I monitor her food and treats (breaking them in half to “give more”) very closely. She is not real active due to bad osteoarthritis in her hips and an un- repaired torn ACL , but she gradually slowing down before surgery. So, losing weight by excerise wasn’t really an option. Just saying weight lose can be done and will help.

    I am curious if the cancer sight is on the cruciate ligament repair sight. Bailey’s was and I hear this is relatively common.

    I’m sorry you’re facing amputation but you DO have a great attitude. Roll with it, like a duck in the water, and you and Barney will get through stronger and this even closer than before.

    Let us know how things are going, we are here for you.

    Thanks for the info guys,
    Jan no the cancer is in his front leg not on his old ligament op sight. He is doing well with his weight, before the vet looked at his leg he had said how well Barney was looking at the moment so we just have to not feel sorry for him and give him loads of treats, only cuddles.
