Soft Tissue Sarcomas in Dogs
Soft tissue sarcomas are common in dogs.
Surgical therapy is the mainstay of treatment, and wide margins of 3cm laterally and a deep fascial plane are recommended where anatomically possible. As some reports suggest that local recurrence may be less common in low-grade tumours of the distal limb, marginal excision can be employed in areas where wide resection cannot be achieved. Radiation therapy and/or metronomic
chemotherapy can be used as adjunctive therapy where there has been marginal excision and/or dirty histopathological margins.
