    • 14year old DSH. Osteosarcoma in the cat is less common overall with a predilection for older cats. They tend to arise more frequentlyin the appendicular skeleton with a predilection for the hindlimbs and are oten diaphyseal rather than metaphyseal. The average survival time in cats is 49.2 months, consistently longer than that of dogs.
