Osteosarcoma: clinical trials and goofy smiles

Jabba-Bear's Blog

Hello world!

January 26th, 2011 · 5 Comments · osteosarcoma

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Jabba-Bear is a 2 year old German Shepard/Border Collie mix. He was recently diagnosed with osteosarcoma in his left rear “ankle” via x-ray and biopsy, and had the leg removed on January 21st, 2011. The next day he was already running and acting like his regular very happy self.

This blog will chronicle his path from amputation to standard chemotherapy and enrollment in a clinical trial using metronomic therapy at North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

We (his parents) are Ph.D. students at Wake Forest University in Winston Salem, NC. Luckily his mom’s parents live in Raleigh allowing us easy access to NCSU.

Hopefully many pictures to follow!

    Welcome, Jabba-Bear and pawrents!

    Sorry this happened to Jabba-Bear – he’s so young! Glad he’s recovering so well. Nothing – not even a loss of limb – can keep a good dog down. 🙂

    Looking forward to reading more of Jabba-Bear’s progress and adventures.

    Pictures would be awesome. We love pictures. 🙂
