I had a three year old Saint Bernard who passed away from bone cancer 09/05/2010. we had her leg amputated and she was doing great for 2 1/2 months and then we found out the cancer had taken over her lungs, chest, and stomach. I was wondering how popular bone cancer is in larger dogs and if anyone has been through this on here.
I am very sorry for your loss. It is tough to lose our pets at any age but even worse when they are so young.
Bone cancer can happen to any breed large or small but it is more common in breeds like the Rottweiler and the Greyhound. How quickly they succumb to it seems to vary, even with amputation, but the majority live about 6 months after diagnosis.
