Title: Urgent Prayers for Ellie please.!!!!
Post by: HehiAset on October 11, 2013, 03:21:04 am
Em Hotep,
 I rarely ask for prayers but this is a dire and exceptional situation.
 Ton save those who know from reading the heart rending story, my puppy (which we have only adopted from rescue several months ago and is only 5 months old and a real "person loving dog" appears to be suffering from OSTEOSARCOMA.

Our vets have treated her for several weeks thinking her left join above the "writs" was badly swolen - X-ray showed nothing. Yesterday we took her back as all treatment hed failed.

The vets are fairly sure of diagnosis but last night sent all info and X-rays to eminent Spanish Specialists for "guidance - we should know the worst by say Wednesday

If they are correct this will mean the almost immediate amputation of her right foreleg, followed by a biopsy of the bone to confirm beyond doubt (done in reverse would cause great pain to the dog).

Basically she will lose the leg I think as it has been and will continue to be eroded and weakened by the disease. She can only walk a max. of 10 minutes a day and must not jump as the leg could . Play fights with her older placid sister are a great fear!

If that were not bad enough if the diagnosis is correct this cancer is very deadly and aggressive so she must then have an expensive and very nasty course of chemo therapy. It will within a year or less get to her lungs and kill her.

We are heartbroken and Elaine is "in bits". I am unsure whether to proceed or if it would be kinder for her to have her already terrible life brought to a painless end. Comments welcome,


ASIDE
Her first months were "difficult". She and 3 siblings were found on the lower slopes of a mountain, blind and motherless. All were totally blind. They were nursed back to health and an eye specialist restored their sight.During much of this period they were fostered by a couple who have a smallholding in the hill,but kept outside.
Cruelly the couple and friends had a barbecue in the ground and apparently did it on the ground or tipped out the hot ashes. Nothing seems to have been used to put out the heat safely. Next morning Ellie and some other dogs had burnt "pads". In her case the flesh had been burn off the first bone underlying the claw. Several claws were actually badly scarred bone. Even the vet will not cuts these when they become too long and the dog seems to have pulled on out of position yesterday and then pulled it out herself.I think that was more than any animal should face in her first few months, she should not now need to face these new trials.

Thank you all!

Oh no, praying.  What a sorrowful and tragic little animal, poor Ellie and poor all of you having to make these decisions.

I'm not a veterinarian, but I do know that dogs can adapt very well to having 3 legs, and for a young dog like Ellie an amputation itself shouldn't prove a problem in the long run when all is said and done.  I don't have any insight into dog chemotherapy though--a coworker's dog had something similar and she eventually opted to euthanize him, but Junior was also 16 years old and geriatric already when his leg started to blow up and they patently *couldn't* do any extensive treatment on such an elderly dog so she just let him live out for another year or so til 17 years, it's apples to oranges with a puppy.

Praying for sure, good luck.

Em Hotep!

Grateful thanks to everyone who answered my request for prayers for little Ellie !! The experts in mainland Spain decided there was no evidence of the dreaded cancer.They asked for a third set of X-RAYS and discovered that the damaged leg, had begun to produce growth nodules and plates. She has to have splints day and night, no jumping, or running free.
The X Rays are being taken monthly for comparison purposes and it is hoped the next one will confirm the beginning of re-growth. THis should save her leg -failing that there is an op to strengthen the currently very weak bone at her "wrist". Nektet! to you all and to your parents from Ellie for the gift of her life!

Wow, that's wonderful news!  An extra prayer for many more cancer-free years for Ellie, and that's even better than amazing that her leg is healing itself on it's own, too!

Again, thank you all for your prayers for Ellie.!!!!!

The vet thinks she is now cured and is doing yet another X_RAY to confirm the joint has successfully healed.
