Hello!

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

My name is Heidi and I was born on 1 Jan 2009. I was the only puppy in my litter, and I was conceived via invetro fertilization. I came from the same breeder as my mate, but we have different parents. Shortly after my owner brought me home, we discovered that I have megaesophagus. After an exploratory surgery, my vets determined that it could not be fixed. As i have grown, my mega-e has gotten “better”. In June of 2010, I had a lump show up on my front left leg. After x-rays and a bone biopsy, I was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma (bone cancer in dogs). My vets gave me 4-6 months to live. I am happy to say that I am still going strong 10 1/2 months after my diagnosis. I had my leg amputated in March of 2011, and I haven’t felt this good since before my diagnosis! If you have any questions about my conditions, please feel free to ask me. I want to help as many dogs as I can! 🙂
