Osteosarcoma is the most aggressive form of bone cancer in dogs.

Main image

My best friend Buddy has been diagnosed with Osteosarcoma - an aggressive bone cancer.

To date our costs are $5550. We have been referred to a specialist oncologist in Auckland for further treatment which includes amputation of his left hind leg followed by chemotherapy.

Our first oncology appointment was on Thursday 18th April, which involved setation, CT scans, bone marrow biopsies and full blood work. We are waiting on official results from the radiologist and lab, but indications are that the cancer has not yet spread meaning Buddy will be a good candidate for amputation and chemotherapy. The cost associated with this treatment is approximately $10k.

Please help me to give Buddy every chance to fight this aggressive cancer. He loves everyone and everything and has been by my side through the hardest times in my life and brings a smile to the faces of everyone he meets. He is only 7 years old - far too young to be facing this battle.

I can't face a future without him, please help!

You can follow Buddy's progress on instagram using #buddyscancerjourney.

Use of funds

$1000 has been spent so far.

Oncology appointment is $230. At this stage I will have a clearer idea of costs.

If the target is exceeded I would like to send a small gift to each of our supporters as a thank you.
