BONE tumours in the dog and cat are usually malignant and, although they display a spectrum of behaviour, many are very aggressive. Middle-aged to older animals are generally affected. Tumours may arise from any of the tissues comprising the bone, including the periosteum, endosteum or medullary cavity. In addition, tumours arising in adjacent soft tissues may invade bone directly, and tumours may metastasise to bone from distant sites. This article discusses the management of tumours of the appendicular skeleton in the dog and cat.
