  1. My Lab/Golden has osteosarcoma n we had rear leg amputated a week ago.
    I have noticed so many pics tha show the amputation all the way up ……ours still has a partial stump ?
    Just wondering ,

    • Different surgeons will perform amputation at different locations depending upon their preference, expertise, recommendation, and/or tumor location among other reasons. Please contact your vet with any specific concerns. If there are at least two joints in the limb, your dog may be a good candidate for a prosthetic. Start here for help finding the many Tripawds resources where you will get much more help and feedback than you will on this old post from 2008.
