"Everyone must leave a legacy and Paws for Friendship Incorporated
is the legacy of Jennie, our beloved Founder."
I am reaching out and informing you that our sweet boy, Monte (formally known as Magic Montu born on 4/08/12), has just been diagnosed with the evil bone cancer (osteosarcoma). We are asking, on his behalf, for your prayers from pain and suffering and for positive healing vibes. We are still in shock and trying to figure out what we should be doing.
We would like to know if ANYONE has any recommendations they can make as far as a specialist in the Tampa area for treating this cancer. Since we think Monte is at the early stages with minimal pain, we would still like to weigh out the quality of life options before making any decisions.
Do you know of any other greyhound owners that have had a greyhound with bone cancer that maybe we could talk to for advice? Holistic Medication?
It only took a routine check-up and telling my vet that I noticed Monte was putting less weight on his left leg. I personally thought it was early signs of arthritis. My vet recommended doing some x-rays and that`s when we found signs of the bone cancer in his left leg at the wrist and joint area. I was told that based on the current x-ray, there were no other signs of cancer that have spread anywhere else. Right now, it looks like only the left leg has been affected. We have an appointment at a specialty + emergency facility called “Blue Pearl” on Friday, June 28th. We made this appointment so that we can receive a second opinion and weigh out quality of life options. I have a CD disc of the x-rays that were taken. We applied for the clinical osteosarcoma research trials at UF. Other than the bone cancer (osteosarcoma) diagnosis that was received today, Monte has been a very happy and healthy “retired” greyhound.
Monte is one of our dearest Members, so if anyone, anywhere has any information please email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will forward it to Monte's parents.
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR HELP!
