Found out today my black lab who is 8 has bone cancer. We have 4 other small dogs, so he is our only big guy. I’m losing my mind. I just can’t handle this. He loves to play ball and go on car rides, this isn’t fair. I suffer from anxiety so handling something like this isn’t in my wheel house.
I don’t want him to pass and I don’t feel qualified to know when his time is up. I don’t want him to suffer at all but I don’t want to let him go too soon. Life is hard.

Dear Stefanie, I’m so sorry! I’m so glad you posted here. Many of us have had pets with cancer so we can relate to the terrified, sickening feeling of finding out that your Hank has been diagnosed with this rotten disease.
A couple of things to keep in mind are that he should have really good pain meds as bone cancer is painful. As long as Hank seems to be enjoying his life and doesn’t seem to be in pain try to enjoy every minute with him. It’s so hard not to let him know you’re upset but if you can do it for him you’ll be so happy that you did. Just come here and vent your sadness and anger that this has all happened. It’s so unfair! He should have had more than 8 years. One thing to remember is how much you loved him so those years have been happy ones for him and you. That’s a huge thing!! Enjoy the time with Hank but be watchful because it’s hard to tell when our pets are in pain. They’ll hide it. I hope you post again. It’s a great place for support. I remember being exactly where you are with that horrible diagnosis and I remember being so overwhelmed. It’s so painful and so exhausting! Please some back with an update. Hugs to you!
