    Thank you all for your kind thoughts and words.

    We took Cosmo to the surgical consult yesterday. We were very well impressed with the vet and the clinic. The vet spent a lot of time with us, explained options and, when she finally unwrapped Cosmo's leg, exclaimed delightedly, "Oh, this will be easy to remove!" when she saw the tumor. That boosted our confidence!

    So, Cosmo is scheduled for surgery next Wednesday. His recovery should be fairly easy, and he should be able to bear weight on the surgical leg within about 24 hours.

    The vet cautioned us that this will not cure the cancer, and it will likely come back, but should buy us enough time for him to live out his life in much more comfort.

    This is pricey, but we will deal with it.

    So, life goes on for my big fur kid!

    Peace,
    Beth.

    We'll know results by Wed. afternoon. I'll post soon as I know. Thanks for the good wishes!

    Cosmo is doing fine today, just not happy that we are going out for the day without him.

    Peace,
    Beth.

    I'm so happy that the prognosis for Cosmo is so good!!

    I'll bet after a little "paws" in the action, he will be

    out there again getting a "leg up" on the competition.

    Give him a supportive pet for me!

    Oh I thought you had decided not to. I stayed with my dog and assisted vet with removal and she did live another two or three years.

    I also wanted to say that if there is a doggie treadmill (water one) near you it works wonders for the healing. A few places have them now. Your doggie goes and walks with legs underwater on a little treadmill. The recovery is so much better.

    Love and kisses to Cosmo I know you have been up and down on what to do.

    Love Anne Crom
