Limb Amputation Cancer Treatment

A limb amputation may be recommended as a treatment option for many reasons including trauma, birth defects and cancer. While this treatment option can improve the lives of patients, it can be a difficult decision to make on behalf of your pet. From the videos you will learn more about this procedure and what to expect from Dr. Nicole Ehrhart, surgical oncologist at the Flint Animal Cancer Center. Interviews with Berkley and Piper’s owners can give you some insight about the experience from the owner’s perspective.
