Hello Tripawds,

My rabbit recently fractured a rear leg due to sarcoma (most likely soft tissue) weakening his bone and/or tissue. He is 8.5 years old (average lifespan is 8-12) and otherwise in great health.

Does anyone here have experience amputating under similar circumstances? Other species are welcome, as this is very rare for rabbits.

I am very concerned about recurrence. The vet said it would be a 50/50 gamble, but the few studies I have found put the odds for recurrence higher.

Here and Now

With clean margins, recurrence of the cancer can be kept to a minimum, and chemotherapy may or may not be effective, depending upon the type of sarcoma – chondrosarcoma, fibrosarcoma, etc. Also check out the recent intralesional chemo and electrochemotherapy videos for other treatment options:
