Canine Osteosarcoma

We recently received this Infographic created by Orvis in partnership with the Morris Animal Foundation. Given our Maggie’s diagnosis and our interest in this topic, I thought it appropriate to share with our readers. We were particularly heartened to read that Morris Animal Foundation has committed $5 million in new research, funding the next five years in the battle against osteosarcoma in dogs.

  1. That was sobering. However, more dogs live 5-6 years past their Dx than I expected. I’m so glad that the Morris Foundation is working on OSA.

    Unfortunately, when Shyla arrived with us, she had a blunt force fracture of her ulna (she was clearly kicked or hit in some other way). I fear that her fracture site will be an OSA site later. I know I’m being crazy but my last Lab died from OSA in her left ulna, exactly where Shyla’s fracture was.

    I hope that Maggie is still a happy girl!!!

    • Keep that sweet SHyla well exercised and fed and maybe you can stave off the arthritis and OSA! Maggie is doing great – our miracle Lab.

  2. Those are quite formidable numbers, thank you for sharing.

  3. Great information. I’m curious as to what age it usually develops in dogs, and/or what age it is usually detected. Hugs to Maggie.

  4. We are supporters/frequent donators of MAF. In fact, Morris Animal Foundation is my favorite charity to support. I give to them as often as I feel we can afford it. I saw the infographic previously, but I’m not sure where.

    Glad to hear that Maggie is doing well!! Give her a virtual hug and kiss for me since she’s not fond of the real thing.

  5. This was very interesting, thanks for sharing it. It’s nice to see how much money is being put into research, hopefully can find a cure.
