Bailey's Misadventures

Jan 04

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

My name is Salena, and I am creating this blog to connect and ask questions regarding cancer in dogs. My almost (birthday is Jan 26th) 8 year old chocolate lab named Bailey has osteosarcoma. There have been no decisions regarding amputation, or anything yet. Although, it seems to be the best direction to go in. I welcome any thoughts, feelings, experiences, anything! I am trying to gather thoughts and everything to make the best decision for Bailey and her quality of life.


What started as a limp, in her right front paw, the vet believes to be bone cancer. We tested for Valley Fever, as the two look similar on x rays. The blood work test for valley fever came back yesterday and is negative. So, now I am left with all sorts of thoughts, and feelings, and questions. A note pas full of gibberish thus far.

PLEASE help us through this trying time.

I’ll post some photos of Bailey tonight and more when I get home. I apologize I am new at this and just thought I should get something up right away.

    We’re 3 months post-op due so osteosarcoma. My boy is a 10 year old lab-husky mix. I’d be happy to answer any questions you might have. Sending good vibes to you and your fur baby.
