My Rottweiller, aged 10, has been diagnosed with a tumor on the right shoulder! As coincidence would have it I lost my 10 year old other bitch to shoulder cancer on Sept 29, 01. I was wondering if you could recommend a drug to help her through this time, or recommend any websites for trial drugs or treatments!, as it will break my heart to sit and watch my best friend suffer and die!
Any information you may think relevant I would appreciate.
If your pet was diagnosed with an osteosarcoma her prognosis is very poor. Amputation is the treatment but it does not prevent it from spreading b/c it usually has by the time you have it diagnosed. You may want to see a vet oncologist( cancer specialist) and you can ask your vet for a referral. For now, I recommend pain killers ( anti-inflammatories) such as Rimadyl or prednisone. vetcare
