Thank you so much for the support, We are all just so thankful that things are actually starting to look up for us now, and now we can do the things Loki should experience.

When I said the wound, I actually meant to say incision, sorry for the confusion haha. The incision is fully healed, and closed. The hair has grown back way faster than we ever expected, however we have had to shave around the incision twice since the surgery, just so we can keep a closer eye on the site.

According to Bob Glass, who has been studying Pythiosis for over 20+ years, he said that if the original wound, (meaning Pythiosis), does not "resurface" at the site of the incision within 30 days of the first immunotherapy shot, which was 7/25, then Loki's chances of survival have almost doubled.

It has been 36 days today from his first immunotherapy injection, and there are no signs of any returning Pythium. So this is great news.

woogyboogy Hey everyone, sorry I haven't been posting on here as much, now that we feel a little more comfortable with Loki's health, we are spending a lot more time with Loki, and doing things with him that everyone normal puppy should experience.

He is doing really good, his incision looks great, and there are no signs of any returning wound. He is starting to get really feisty, and suddenly has more energy than ever before, but I'm not complaining.

We started his 2nd round of immunotherapy injections yesterday, which will be another 3 shots, so 6 shots total, and he received his 4th shot yesterday.

He also swam in the pool yesterday, it has been over 3 months since he has been in any type of water, other than a bath haha, and trust me when I say this, he will NEVER be going into any pond every again!

Thank you everyone so much for all of the support and advice, I promise you that when I say we wouldn't be where we are today without you, I mean it!

Bone cancer spreads quickly and totally sucks. Usually by the time you find it, it is way too late. Our previous dog died of bone cancer, we lost him 3 weeks after diagnosis. The pain of the bone cancer is incredible. Not that any doggie disease is fun, but things are particularly difficult when you can't do anything to help with the pain, but say goodbye.
