Dogs and humans get osteosarcoma (OSA) and their diseases are almost identical.  We have learned so much in the last couple of decades.  The standard of care; amputation and chemotherapy for dogs with appendicular osteosarcoma (OSA) can provide good results.  However, the diagnostic and management pitfalls are important to know.  Then there are those cases with axial skeleton OSA or primary tumours in uncommon locations.  These cases are often problematic.  Complexity also increases when considering palliative care, limb-sparing surgery, stereotactic radiosurgery, amputation techniques and hemipelvectomy, endoprostheses, bio-integrated prostheses, combination chemotherapy, antimetastatic drugs and immunotherapy.  There are now many options for clients with dogs with OSA and this cancer in dogs provides the opportunity for clinical trials where results translate to the human clinic.
