Happy 4 month ampuversary

What a journey.  Today is a great milestone.  4 months since losing her leg.  It doesn’t seem like 4 months ago she was at the vet having her leg removed.  Sassy has recovered better than the vets ever expected.  Hopping around and enjoying life.   Doesn’t act like the cancer has spread, its been 5 days on the metronomics that we started on Sunday the 10th of March.   She seems to be doing very well with them.  No side effects that I can tell.  We are making sure that she gets out every couple of hours so there are no bladder infections which could be a possible side affect.

I did forget to add that Sassy’s vet featured her on their facebook page it was awesome.

Happy 4th Ampuversary Baby girl.  Many more 🙂


I did forget to add that we did decide to go with the Metronomic therapy vs the Padaillia as the cost of the Padaillia was $1100 plus at least $300 in monitoring of blood urine etc.  The Metronomics that we are doing is a Cyclophophamide 22 mgs (for Sassy’s weight, the chemo drug) & the NSAID is carproben (generic for Rimadyl).  total with shipping from Diamondback drugs is 97.32.  There of course will be some blood work & follow up lung xrays every couple of months.  This fits in the budget much better.  Sassy is doing wonderful on it so far.

    Yay! Happy, hoppy 4 months dear Sassy Sugar Bear! Get some Dairy Queen stuff tonight. Your mama will tell you that you only get vanilla soft serve, but tell her you want a strawberry sundae with whipped cream. That’s what a sassy dog needs!

    I am so happy that things are going well, Michelle. I know you held your breath for days, but you can’t hold it forever. Nobody knows how long Sassy will be here, so you just have to breathe again and enjoy the ride. Sassy will!
