Osteosarcomas in cats
Osteosarcomas are neoplasias which are commonly especially in young or middle-aged dogs of large or giantt breeds, and their prognosis is guarded in most cases. In cats, osteosarcoma (OSA) is a rare tumor but it is worth to have some additional informations regarding localisation and prognosis!

Ninety (62%) of feline OSAs detailed in this study arose from the skeleton, and 55 (38%) arose from extraskeletal sites.

Fifty OSAs originated in the appendicular skeleton, and 40 OSAs originated in the axial skeleton.

Extraskeletal OSA sites included subcutaneous sites (n=44), with an apparent prevalence for sites commonly used for vaccination.

Other locations included ocular/orbital (n=4), oral (n=3), intestinal/omental (n=3), and mammary sites (n=1).

Survival data was available for 74 cases.

When considered as a group, cats with either appendicular (mean, 11.8 mos) or extraskeletal (mean, 12.67 mos) OSA survived longer than those with axial (mean, 6.07 mos) OSA.

Regardless of the type of feline OSA, aggressive surgical excision with or without ancillary therapy appeared to be the most effective form of treatment.

Radioactive iodine uptake in hyperthyroid cats after rh-TSHmembers
Radioactive iodine therapy is considered the treatment of choice for hyperthyroidism in cats, but the availability of this modality is limited by costs and hospitalization requirements. Administration of recombinant human thyroid stimulating hormone (rh‐TSH) to humans with thyroid neoplasia or nodular goiter can increase thyroidal iodine uptake, thereby allowing the use of lower radioactive iodine doses for treatment. Veterinary studies of this subject are limited, and results are conflicting. Thus, the objective of this study was to investigate the effects of rh‐TSH administration on thyroidal iodine uptake in hyperthyroid cats.
