In June of 2006, our cat Tang was diagnosed with Vaccine-Associated Sarcoma, a really nasty cancer caused by a vaccine he received. The tumor formed on his right rear leg (where the vaccine was administered), so the best chance to save him was to amputate the leg. A year later, he’s still doing great!
Here are some videos of Tang only two weeks after his amputation surgery. As you can see, cats get along fine with just three legs!
Here’s Tang’s normal walking pace. (download)
