Too true. I received a text yesterday that one of my favorite adoptees went to the bridge from Osteo.

 

In 2001 a greyhound breeder took 5 males and one 14 month old female that had a simple fracture to the vet on their usual Monday Morning kill truck. The vet put down the boys but he couldn't bear to put down the white puppy. He kept saying "after this next appointment"...then at noon a rottie that had been hit by a car came in and he used the grey as a super emergency blood donor. Then he REALLY could not put her down. She came out the back door and we named her Angel for being there for the rottie. She had a great life with her Moms but the Osteo came on too hard and too fast.

 

Godspeed Angel.

I would be interested in knowing what is the breakdown in terms of age. I lost Enzo to OS and he was only seven years old. How many of them are geriatric as opposed to younger dogs?

I always knew that the odds were stacked against me - I have four greyhounds...the odds of at least one of them getting cancer are pretty high. Ace has chronic lymphocytic leukemia, and now Sutra possibly has osteo.

 

Ace has been receiving treatment for a while now and is doing well.

 

Today Sutra is very chipper and his limp is less pronounced. Thank goodness his meds are curbing the pain a bit. He happily ate his breakfast and is sacked out on a bed, just like the others are.

A cure for cancer can't come soon enough.--

Cancer does not age discrimate, one of my boys was not even 4 years old, another one was only 6, one was 8, one was 10 and two were 11. It is just heartbreaking to see so many of our much loved hounds and their people have to go through it.

Way too many, I agree. Seizures took my first grey from me, but I have 5 at home now, and I'm just waiting for the shoe to drop.mad.gif

I had 4 at home, 2 more at the Bridge. (neither of which died of OS). I did the same thing, just waited for my turn. And in Oct of this year, My turn came. Dima got it.

There is an informal greyhound survey refered to by Dr Couto in an article on the OSU website. http://vet.osu.edu/2096.htm

In that survey, 44% of greyhounds deaths are attributed to cancer and 22% to bone cancer in particular.

 

Very sad indeed.

Measure wealth not by the things that you have, but by the things you have for which you would not take money.

Does anyone know if show greyhounds have the same cancer ratio as racing greyhounds? I heard some where that racing greyhounds have a higher percentage than non-racers.
