Sharon, just a quick note to let you know how heartsick I am about Boomer. You're in my thoughts and prayers. Sally

Thanks for the friend request! Toby was diagnosed with oral melanoma in March 2015. He began receiving ONCEPT vaccines in April and so far, the cancer hasn't spread to his lymph nodes or lungs. I believe that Toby received 4 vaccines and then booster shots. Beginning April of this year, he will only need booster shots every 6 months. So far, ONCEPT has cost us over $10,000. We have pet insurance, so they pay about 60% of the total cost. Our oncologist also wanted Toby to take chemotherapy medication, but it was too expensive for us. How is Boomer doing?

Thank you for tying the friend request, and for tying the Tail Injury posts together.
I'm glad to have a community of Doodle Lovers to share the joy and sometimes pain of loving and living with these wonderful creatures.

Yes, beef tendons and beef tracheas are good use of animal by-products and I like that idea.  Just got another package of bully sticks for my dogs and they get 20 minutes a day (takes them three days) to chew them.  Outside only!  Then I put them in a zip-lock bag and store until the next day.  I also don't use rawhide because I could see problems with that but my vet said she has never taken a rawhide out of a dog's stomach and she has surgically removed all kinds of things.  Agrees that bullysticks are a good use of animal byproducts.
