    Definitely some muscle atrophy.
    I'd say most likely due to favoring the knee, but it could be from hip or low back.
    I'd get the dog to K State, because it sounds like your Vets are still stabbing in the dark.
    Be sure to ask the K State Vets about using Cold Laser.

    Waiting on the pathology to come back but everything points towards cancer.

    Sorry about the diagnosis.
    However, you can definitely make your dog's remaining days much more comfortable (and probably live longer) by giving your dog a QUALITY
    CBD Oil.
    Check out this link for a scholarly journal research study concerning Canine Osteosarcoma and CBD. https://www.researchgate.net/profil...e_A_review/links/5721c02708aea92aff8b32fd.pdf

    My choice for CBD would be King Kalm (made by king kanine)

    Also go to www.scholar.google.com and use the search words
    Canine Osteosarcoma and CBD for the latest information.

    It seems to be progressing quickly. Wish we wouldve caught it earlier. She has trouble walking on our vinyl plank floors. The kids are putting welcome mats in front of her so she can get to and from the food bowl, water dish, and outside. Going to get a chest xray to see how far it spread and figure out a timeline. One thing I dont want her to do is suffer.

    Ive got the King Kalm coming for her. Went to the vet today. She talked me out of the chest xray. She said that if we were not doing chemo or radiation the xray was for info only. She said its already in her lungs whether we can see it or not. She also said that she had never seen a case of osteosarcoma in the pelvis that typically it is further down a limb. It appears particularly aggresive since the xray from mid feb when she first had symptoms doesnt show anything like what now exists.
    We are going to keep a journal and when the good days outnumber the bad it will be time for Molly to cross the rainbow bridge. A pic from her last hunt.
