    Osteocarcoma diagnosis!

    I am truly sad to hear this devastating news, it rings too true in my ears. My Bailey at 4 years was diagnosed in a very similar situation. I was advised and convinced to take the 'amputation' option. I did the research and Bailey's condition was worsening rapidly and his pain levels were huge...

    Bailey has been diagnosed with Osteosarcoma

    A decision was made on Tuesday, Bailey was booked in for Wednesday for scans and bloods and if clear, amputation of the forearm. All results were clear, way to go! Amputation of the forearm took place and he managed the surgery very well. Unfortunately though we lost him this morning in post...

    Bailey has been diagnosed with Osteosarcoma

    It is such a hard decision, and yes my head is spinning. I am reading as much as I can on it all and thanks for your information. I googed the Canine cancer awareness and they are no longer accepting applications as they are inundated, which is a sad situation reflecting on how many canine's and...

    Bailey has been diagnosed with Osteosarcoma

    My 4 year old boxer, Bailey Boy, was diagnosed this week with bone cancer. It is very aggressive and he is suddenly in a lot of pain. It is currently obvious in his left foreleg, where else it is, is still unknown. I have him now on pain relief via a patch on his hindquarter and also on tremol...

    Why'd you name your boxer that?

    We named our little baby Mollie when we got her at 8 weeks, and we took her home but the name just did not suit!! So we tried all sorts of names for her over a week and a bit, and no-one could agree. We had her out a sporting event in her carry bag cos she was too small to put down on the grass...

    Blayzes lump...Im worried about this one

    Very happy news, we got Bridget's results and it is not malignant, not cancer at all it would appear..Whooppeeee!!!! So relieved, so relieved! She had a fairly large area removed, large in comparison to the lump, although small in comparison to the last incisions from last time. All those...

    Blayzes lump...Im worried about this one

    Thought I'd give my 2 pence worth as well, healing vibes are sent to you from Queensland where we are going through the same gut wrenching issues ourselves. The beautiful Bridget is booked in tomorrow to have her 2nd lump removed, from her central chest area. The 1st one was back in May this...

    Well, today we have great news, the pathology tests came back all clear this time, all the great thoughts and wishes worked!! Thank you all!! Bridget looks very well, she is very energetic which is a bit of a problem because of the enourmous area they have removed. She was very knocked out after...

    Mast Cell Tumor/alternative treatments

    Thanks for your reply, I might try those tabs, little Bridget is only 21 kgs, she is a tiny little girl! I will keep the dose low to start with. She is booked in in 2 days time for the 2nd surgery, it is such a worry. They took such a large area out they needed to wait at least a week to allow...

    Mast Cell Tumor/alternative treatments

    Hi, we also are exploring this terrible situation as our Bridget has just had a tumour removed from her side. It was a category 2, and unfortunately the margins were not intact and she is going back in this week to have second removal. I am wondering with the mention of the vitamin c, what form...

    Uncontrolled peeing

    Thanks for your reply, and yes she is spayed, so that is interesting that you have seen that before. I will check it out with the vet although she is very not good with medications, particularly long term ones, so we will have to weigh up whether or not it is serious enough to treat at this...

    Uncontrolled peeing

    This is a strange problem, Bridget is 2 and a half years now and has been very healthy and active. A few weeks ago she climbed up on a chair and lay down on her side and peed all over the chair and floor, quite a lot of pee. She did not seem to be aware of it at all. Anyway, we cleaned up the...

    Escaping through front door

    Thanks for your ideas, that forum site has some good clues. I will try that method, I guess all training is time and I need to take more time I think. She generally does it when we are all busy doing something else. Thanks heaps for your support. We have sold this house and in a couple of...

    Escaping through front door

    I am having real trouble with Bridget. She has learnt to open the front door and rush out through the front yard to the street, running full pelt. She is virtually impossible to catch, she manages to duck and weave and run so fast. She snoops through all the gardens in the street and sniffs...

    Itchy skin

    My Bridget, is 17 months old and suffers from very itchy skin. She bites her legs and scratches herself so much. She has an effective flea treatment and a special wash called Malaseb twice a week when she is affected. She is really bad with it at the moment. A couple of months ago the vet...

    If your boxer takes you for a walk try this

    I was going to buy a halti for Bridget but was told by the pet shop, the vet and at obedience training that they must not be fitted to a Boxer because of the soft tissue along their nose line, and it is unsuitable and unsafe, BUT.. after reading all your reply's here, I would be tempted to get...

    Why is my pup always running to the neighbors house??

    I know how you feel! If Bridget goes out the front door without a lead on she is off and away, across the street and into the neighbours yard. She treats it like a game, and after I reach their yard, she ducks and hides in the garden, then runs past me at 100mph, no way I can catch her. Have...

    Boxer Traits

    Haven't been on here for ages and it's so good to see that this topic is still so interesting. Our Bridget is now almost 12 months old and as she has grown so have her typical traits, such as putting her paw on my arm while I am driving the car, and sitting up in the front seat like the...

    black skin

    My Bridget has some black skin, which as I understand from my vet is scar tissue, caused by having Demodex. We have been advised to use a herbal cream on it (we are in Australian and it is called "The Scarless Healer" by Rosa). She licks this area, particularly in the early morning and wakes...
