We are looking for dogs that were diagnosed with cancer (based on cytology, biopsy or a presumed diagnosis of cancer based on anatomic site and radiographic findings) in one of the front legs and received a recommendation for amputation as part of their cancer treatment.
We cannot include dogs that are unable to walk before amputation.
To see if your dog can take part in the study, we will need to run blood and urine analyses to ensure that your dog can receive a NSAID following amputation, orthopedic and neurologic exam to make sure that your dog is a good candidate for amputation and will have a reasonable quality of life following amputation, and a one minute video recorded walking test.
