On a side note, with the known intra-abdominal bleeding, the vet gave me an herbal medication to give. Below is the information for those of you who may have interest.

Sarge has been the the love of my life since we rescued him in 2007. He was thought to be a carcass on the side of the road in our community park. As I walked over to look at the pitiful dead dog, I soon realized he was still breathing, barely. We rushed him to the vet and although severely malnourished and in a terrible state, with TLC he miraculously pulled through. Snap shot ahead to 6/2014, we decide to go outside to play fetch, he was so excited and full of energy, doing his typical bouncy boxer pelvic shuffle. He took a nasty tumble and the sounds that followed was nothing short of heart piercing. My heart stopped, because I knew it was bad, very bad. I am a PA, not a veterinarian, but I knew instantly the leg was broken badly. I splinted him and rushed him to the vet. What initially was going to be an orthopedic surgery to repair a broken radius and ulna, quickly turned into, "Your dog sustained a pathological cancer, we think he has osteosarcoma". I could not even hear what I was being told. How could this seemingly happy, healthy, FULL of life dog have CANCER?? The BX confirmed my worst fears. This whole process took over a week. In that time I researched every aspect of canine osteosarcoma I could find and I had already made up my mind, we were going to fight this, not for me, but I knew he was not done living!!! Making the decision to amputate was not one taken lightly. We ensured there were no macro mets and that his blood work looked stable. I also decided if we amputated we would also do chemo. Sarge had his leg amputated 2 days ago and I am amazed at his hour by hour improvement. We start chemo in 2 weeks. I will keep everyone updated and love reading stories on here that give me hope that he will be able to be a happy, pain free normal Sarge!!! This is when we joined TRIPAWDS! What a wonderful, reassuring supportive community! I love you TRIPAWDS!

  1. Thanks for taking the time to share the information!

    I have seen .members here who have used it and have had felt very positive about it. For whatever it’s worth, it’s certainly a route I would absolutely try in a heartbeat if faced with the same situation!

    Hugs and best wishes for Sarge

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

  2. I second Sally’s recommendation for the yunnan. My dog, Lucy, had hemangiosarcoma which can involve a lot of internal bleeding (and she did have bleeding) and we gave her the yunnan every day for over a year. The packets we got from the modern herb shop online each came with a red emergency pill that was tiny. The herb was used during wars originally to stop bleeds and I know our emergency vet administers it frequently. I don’t know for sure what worked or didn’t internally but Lucy didn’t have any adverse reaction.
    I hope it can help your precious Sarge. We love that boy.

  3. So far Sarge is pushing on. Eating daily and drinking, definite slowing down of activity is noted. He did have a set back 3 nights ago. Became agitated and kept looking around, seemed anxious, we gave him a trazadone for anxiety. Became clear he has lost vision on his right side. He can only see us if we are on his left. Thinking a stroke. Bless his heart, he still wags his tail and seems so happy to be with us. I backed the meds down to once a day in case it was making him prone to clot.
