Osteosarcoma

Osteosarcoma (OS) is the most common primary bone tumor in both dogs and people. While the disease incidence is relatively low in people (800-1000 cases/year), over 25,000 new cases are diagnosed in dogs every year. Most dogs develop OS at approximately 7 years of age, with a smaller early peak in younger dogs.

Spinal Cord Injury

Intervertebral disc herniation (IVDH)- associated SCI is the most common cause of SCI in pet dogs, with upwards of 20,000 cases managed by veterinary spinal surgeons in the United States every year.
