Ruby was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in December 2016 after we noticed she was favoring her back left leg. Ruby’s veterinarian at the University of Missouri told us about the ELIAS trial and it was an obvious YES. Her care team told us Ruby tolerated the treatments well, although she was an escape artist getting out of the cone!
Today, Ruby is alive and thriving. She turned 12 in August 2020 and has more energy now than ever before. She loves to run, chase birds and rabbits, and going on walks. We recently moved from MO to MI and when it snows (which is often), she loves running in it. Ruby is a gem and we are so happy those years with her have been extended.
*As of November 2020, Ruby is still alive and thriving – nearly 4 years after her diagnosis!
