A Year After Her Amputation
Wiggles the dog was diagnosed with a bone tumor in her front right leg last year. When we were researching whether or not we should have her leg amputated, I saw a lot of web pages devoted to how dogs can do well and live fully after having a leg amputated; however, I didn't find many videos or stories that talked about dogs surviving from bone cancer over a year after their amputation. Therefore, I am sharing this story and video about Wiggles. Her front leg amputation was almost 13 months ago. She is doing extremely well! We think she is 12 or 13 years old, and she is still running and playing. She is loving life. And, knock on wood, she seems perfectly healthy.
