Luna, a happy ending despite an agonizing decision to amputate

Luna, an 11 year old shepherd mix, had a large mass (larger than a golf ball) between her toes in the left front leg. Amputation was the only reasonable option. After agonizing over this difficult decision, Luna’s owner eventually agreed to do the right thing for her beloved dog and scheduled the amputation. Four weeks after surgery, Luna’s owner writes: “Hi Dr Zeltzman. Just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful care you gave to Luna. She is doing wonderful and living a happy pain free life.”
