What is the MIMIC study for Minimally Invasive Metastasectomy in Canines? And what does Whiskey the Tripawd have to do with it?
In this episode of Tripawd Talk Radio, we’re going to share all the details about Whiskey’s osteosarcoma metastasis surgery victory over lung mets. Whiskey thrived for over 18 months after surgery. It was only recently when she got her angel wings on May 3, 2023. We dedicate this episode to her life and legacy.
Her story and her legacy lives on through the many dogs that are being helped by this new procedure.

Whiskey and the MIMIC study for Minimally Invasive Metastasectomy in Canines
Dr Thomson is working on the MIMIC clinical study for Minimally Invasive Metastasectomy in Canines. That’s a mouthful, but it means making advances in resection of lung metastases in dogs, with quicker recovery, some surprising results, AND more data toward finding curative treatments for metastatic cancers.
And that’s Where Whiskey comes in. We recently profiled this canine cancer hero in the Tripawds News blog. She received treatment for lung mets from osteosarcoma in the MIMIC trials. Whiskey’s mom Eleni Merkh joins us now us to tell us how that went.
