I'm not sure, at that age, if I'd have gone for amputation. But that was your decision of course. Can I ask whether they checked for spread of the cancer? And what is the prognosis? How is she tolerating her collar - that's not something any of ours would ....... had we needed to use one (not necessary with me being there all the time it would be needed), I'd have gone for one of the soft roll collars.

I would just say that losing a rear leg would be a better option than losing a front one, bearing in mind most of their weight is born on the front legs.*

I hope she has a good recovery and you have many more years with her.

PS * Sorry, I forgot I'd written in response to your earlier post about this.
