Dr Sue is a boarded veterinary medical cancer specialist, book author, radio co-host, lecturer, and Certified Veterinary Journalist. Veterinarians and pet owners know Dr Sue for her positive approach to cancer in pets. Cancer is not a death sentence. While we all want a cure for cancer, Dr Sue encourages veterinarians and pet owners to think of many cancers in pets as chronic conditions that may require chronic therapy, like kidney disease or heart disease. As an oncologist, she recommends treatment when the pet is likely to live longer with treatment than without. And thankfully most pets feel good, if not great, during treatment. Her motto is “live longer, live well”.
Dr Sue’s sessions provide practical cancer information and an inspiring approach to treating and diagnosing cancer. Treating cancer does not have to be depressing. There is hope. Dr Sue’s sessions are engaging, educational and incorporate her fifteen-plus years of clinical experience with case presentations from her practice. Dr Sue is also an advocate of early cancer detection and raising cancer awareness with her “See Something, Do Something. Why Wait? Aspirate ® .” lumps and bumps detection program.

🔹Osteosarcoma Spotlight: Diagnostics 🔹
🔬Cytology, or looking at the cells aspirated from a tumor, can be one of the diagnostic tests used for a pet with suspected osteosarcoma. It is not as definitive as some of the more invasive tests, but a few cells from a fine needle aspirate can be enough for veterinarians and cancer specialists to help distinguish malignant vs non-malignant tumors.
🔬The accuracy rate for obtaining an osteosarcoma diagnosis on cytology is about 70-85%, but other tests may be needed to confirm.

🦴 However, each patient is different. Talk to your veterinarian or cancer specialist to determine the best staging plan for your dog, your family, and your budget.
🦴 Ideally, these would include a combination of an orthopedic exam, a lymph node fine needle aspirate (FNA) of a local lymph node near the tumor, and then 3-view chest radiographs (x-rays) or a CT scan to check for metastasis and any other disease.
