Spontaneous osteosarcoma in a rabbit
Osteosarcomas are very rare in rabbits but common in dogs. This recently published case report from Japan describes a rabbit with an osteosarcoma at the same predilection site as a dog. Very informative!

A 6-year-old male cross-breed rabbit ( Oryctolagus cuniculus) was presented with lameness and severe swelling from the right shoulder to brachium.

On 16-detector helical computed tomography images of the amputated right forelimb after being fixed in formalin, evident proliferative and destructive lesions of bone were observed. On histologic examination, the tumor was composed of proliferating neoplastic cells that resembled histiocytes, with abundant osteoid production.

A large number of multinucleated giant cells were found throughout.

This case was diagnosed as osteosarcoma by clinical, radiographic, and histologic findings.

This is a rare case report of osteosarcoma in a rabbit consistent with canine predilection sites.

SMALL ANIMAL PRACTICE

First description of ultrasonic bone curette in canine otic surgery
Three West Highland white terriers were presented for investigation of left‐sided para‐aural abscessation. CT revealed chronic otitis media with extensive osseous proliferation surrounding the horizontal and vertical ear canals contiguous with the expanded temporal bone, consistent with a unilateral variant of craniomandibular osteopathy. The therapy was very innovative!
