Confessions of a Dosing Specialist: Osteosarcoma
Susie is a 6 year old Lab who was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, found in one of her hind legs. Her family was devastated, especially since Susie was not very old. For many dogs who get this type of cancer, the prognosis is not very hopeful. For many dogs, Osteosarcoma can be a death sentence. It is not uncommon for dogs to require a leg amputation, in an attempt to keep the cancer from spreading.
