My Rottweilier has been diagnosed with neoplasia in his right carpal joint.
My vet says the only option is amputation. Stein is 9.5 years old. He is a large Rottweilier that weighs 155 pounds. I have had him since he was 8 weeks old. I don'y know what to do, I am just starting this in hopes that someone may ask some questions and get it going from there. I noticed his right front carpal joint swollen in early may. I brought him in to the vet where he was positive for Lyme. He went on Doxacyline but his joint was still swoolen. I brought him into the vets again and they X-Rayed his joint and concluded it was neoplasia. His Lungs are ok and his other leg ok
It really depends on how invasive the neoplasia is. Did they do a aspiration/cytology of the cells in the tumor? I can not tell you how bad things are on a web site, if you have any doubts please get an opinion from somoneone who works in cancer cases, but do it quickly. If the tumor is invasive it may affect other areas. It looks like Stein needs to lose weight but I have seen a lot of three legged dogs get around just fine
So sorry to hear about Buck. I will say that if you're not certain, I would get a second professional opinion to ensure he's a god candidate for amputation. Also, visit us at Tripawds again, our community is a terrific resource full of lots of helpful people who can help. Good luck.
