Trying to keep it together. As I know our lil furries pick up on our moods. 3 pages of a very detailed report came in from the Pathologist. Below is copied from the summary comments☹️
While the tumor is predominantly chondroblastic there are some regions producing osteoid-like trabeculae in the center of the medullary cavity which is consistent with a chondroblastic osteosarcoma. Mitotic index is the best predictor of behavior. In this case the mitotic index is high, and therefore I suspect aggressive behavior in this tumor. Nevertheless these tumors are less aggressive than dogs. The overall metastatic rate is about 10%. 1 year survival can reach up to 50%.
