We noticed Gully was limping about 2 mos ago. We immediately had him checked out by the vet. The vet said he probably had a sprain but just to be safe to take him to an orthopedic vet. Well we did and at first he too thought it was a sprain. Well after further examining the x-ray they thought he might have a tumor. Well we got the biopsy results today and it is for sure a cancerous tumor. There is nothing that can be done for him and he will only have about 2 mos to live. We are controlling his pain with meds and the inflammation with steroids. We are just heart broken. Gully is the sweetest dog and everyone who knows him loves him. He is 2 years old this month. He is a 200 pound English Mastiff(for those of you who dont know him). This is just one of those freak things you dont expect to happen. We are all taking it hard but most of all we just dont want him to suffer.
