The 'official' Diagnosis


Recommended Posts

The vet at the Animal Hospital just called and told me they did 2 more Xrays and it wasn't necessary to do the needle aspirate or the bone biopsy. Chance has OS.


The only thing that can be considered good news is that he is able to come home. He has a pain patch on and has had it since Saturday, so they will put a new one on since they take 12-24 hours to kick in, and only last 3-5 days. They will give me a prescription for Tramadol and Previcox and see how he does. I can take him to my regular vet if he needs another pain patch.


My regular vet called and was so sorry. Even though he did Xrays and radiographs, they were the outside of the leg and the lesion is on the inside. He's really a great guy and told me that when the time comes, he will come to the house to help Chance over the Bridge. Sigh.


Thanks again all for your love, support and wisdom.

I'm so sorry, too. It's so damn hard when you get this diagnosis. I'm glad that Chance will be able to come home to you so that you can spoil him and have this time together.
