Without Regret Book Helps with the Amputation Decision

Read any helpful books about Tripawds lately? Well, Angel Leo’s Mom Sherry did, and she was kind enough to share her thoughts about the book “Without Regret: A Handbook for Owners of Canine Amputees.”

Without Regret: A Review by Sherry Mauritzen

Without Regret” was very helpful to us when our 10 year old yellow lab (Leo, pictured above) was first diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in his front right leg.

This book was easy to read providing information to guide us through our experience and also providing comfort in knowing we weren’t the only ones. It is written to provide information to those that are going through with a canine who has been diagnosed with cancer and needing to have a leg amputated.

The first part deals with history and reasons why dogs have an amputation done. Then it talks about all the different kinds of cancers and what to expect and how to handle certain situations. It also discusses:

  • What questions to ask your vet not only on your behalf but in the well being of your canine.
  • Going through the steps of being diagnosed, what to do next and what to expect pre and post surgery.
  • I also found it very helpful in describing different scenarios and how to deal with them.

The book also explains how to make your home safer for your Tripawd and making him/her comfortable and safe as can be. It also covers continued healthcare, nutrition, exercise and environmental needs, all which are important in caring for your canine.

Starting from the beginning to when we have to say goodbye, this book does a great job of explaining the journey you will go through in caring for your canine amputee and providing many resources of support.

I highly recommend “Without Regret” to everyone who has a canine that was diagnosed with cancer.

  1. Sounds like an awesome book. I think it should be a must read for all who face this decision. No matter how much we know we are doing for our beloved pets somehow we still feel that there is more we could have done or perhaps a different decision which should have been made. The more informed we are and the more we allow ourselves to surrender to the journey once decisions and plans have been made the more we can bask in the present moment and be grateful for the time we do have with our tripawd.
