This terrific article by Dr. Susan Ettinger, aka co-author of The Dog Cancer Survival Guide, discusses the latest chemo options and study findings for treating osteosarcoma. For example:

"At my recent annual Vet Cancer Society conference in the fall of 2012, there was a great abstract from the group at Colorado State University which looked at almost 500 dogs to compare protocols. Dogs either received doxorubicin, carboplatin, or a protocol that alternated the two. Based on this preliminary report, there were no significant differences in the protocols when measuring how long the patients remained tumor-free, and survival times. As always the case with research abstracts, we will need to wait for the published protocol to come out, but at this point, one protocol does not appear to be better than the other. So discuss the different drugs with your oncologist, with regards to your dog’s specific needs."
