Galgo Beatrix Has Osteosarcoma


Recommended Posts

I'm very sorry that this disease has chased you into another breed. :( So unfair. I know you will spoil that sweet girl for what time she has left, and help her to leave this world peacefully and surrounded by love.

I am so sorry to hear about your girl. Having lost my beautiful Primetime to osteo in 2012 at age 8 was crushing, (he was the picture of good health and great personality until he got the dreaded disease). That's the crappy thing about cancer--it is unpredictable. It can effect any dog of any breed and at any age. I have known people who lost 2 year old dogs to cancer (and the same applies to humans). I too live in fear of osteo, any time one of my guys limps I have an anxiety attack. Gentle hugs to Beatrix.


I'm truly sorry that this has happened to you and Beatrix. I know of at least 1 case of osteo (verifiable) in Spain and with the importing of dogs (Ireland) to beef up their galgo lines, it may only be a matter of time before the rates of osteo are relatively equal.

I had no idea! Are they mixing in Irish greyhounds with galgos?

I am so vey sorry Laura. This is devastating news and so very heartbreaking to face it again. You have given Beatrix the best years of her life and she is forever grateful by the love she shows you. Give your special girl a hug from me.

Yes, they used to mix galgos and greyhounds. My understanding is that it isn't done as often anymore.

No, he was having issues getting x-rays in the format he needed from the specialist vet. I sent another request to them yesterday.

 

Two vet friends agree that it's osteosarcoma based on the x-ray I posted on Facebook. :(
