New here and looking for support and advice on the cancer my lab was diagnosed with yesterday. He has osteosarcoma (bone cancer) of the jaw. It is high grade. Today we will see the vet and discuss the future.
I would love some encouragement.
We have a member on this forum: kassabella if you contact her she can help you. Her Kassa had bone cancer of the jaw. I am so sorry your boy has this, please contact kassa she can help.

I am so sorry you have received such sad news. I will keep your dog and you in my thoughts and prayers. Please take the advice from sophiesmama, I am sure you will get great advice from kassabella and tons of support from many.
I am so sorry. I replied to your message. Check my siggy and the BCD organistation for some info in the mean time. Please ask any questions and no question is dumb.
Most of all don't give up hope. As I said..I was going to fight until the fat lady sings, and Kassy and I fought like heck. Post in Lab chat as the thoughts and prayers help.
Good healing thoughts.
Hi! Welcome to the forum! I hope you like it here!
I am so sorry that you recieved this bad news. I hope that the vet will be able to help you extend his life. We will all be thinking of you both.

Jen I am thinking of you and a little worried as you haven't come back. I know this is devestating. When Kassa was diagnosed no one knew much. Not even the vets who said she would be dead in a month...Noo...No... I can't give up..I can't... I couldn't find anyone who had been there, or knew anything about bone cancer. It is a devestating hole with so many questions, guilts, should I have seen it earlier, why me,,why my dog... We all go through those horrible thoughts, then what is the best thing to do. There is no right or wrong decision.
I haven't checked the BCD, but if I am not here please go there. We are also on f.b. so if you need anything someone is there for you.
You are not alone, so any time you need someone we are there for you.
Kassabella I think I send you a message.
What forum on here is about cancer?
We are doing fine. On Monday we see an oncologist.
You did send me a message and I answered it. If you didn't get it the answer to your question will I be your mentor...certainly. Please bombard me with questions, vents, or just I need a shoulder any time.
The forum is yahoo bone cancer dogs. If you go to the link under my siggy it will take you to the organisation site and if you click on the link at the bottom left it will take you there.
I am bumping this up in case Jen comes back.
Jen your boy is adorable. Good luck and thinking of you on the 7th.
