imageimagesorry to report my very special Izzy the 11 1/2 year old beagle  Tripawd has developed a new  bone cancer in her remaining front  “shoulder”. Her original amputation was in December and we were all looking forward to some rehab and another summer trip to Colorado for some gentle hikes.  Initially her recovery was strong but over the last few weeks she just didn’t seem to progress.  Now we, sadly, know why.  She is on increased pain meds Continue reading “Izzy’s final lap”

Izzy post 12/20 front limb amputation

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

imageIzzy is a wonderful 11 1/2 year old beagle I adopted 2 years ago when her family moved out of the country.  She has fit in with my other rescue beagle and a rescue malanois like they were litter mates  She is smart, sweet and has been very active.  She hiked in Colorado last summer like she was born in the mountains rather than the Gulf Coast. In late November she began to limp and on December 20 2015 she had a front left limb amputation for osteo sarcoma.  She has been doing real well in recovery— now really ready to play and is barking her head off just like she did before all her pain and trouble started in November. I was not sure what to expect and was really anxious about her  but am now also having a good recovery after help and support from the people at Tripawds!

Izze has gotten a little acupuncture  and the acupuncture vet saw her this morning and is concerned she may be developing a seroma.  Yikes! and I am leaving for vacation tonite.  But the acupuncture vet will make a house call to check her while I am gone. How amazing is that??  I need to figure out how to post her picture as she is beautiful.  Thank you all for your help.
