This cancer is somewhat common in dogs and more so in certain breeds including German Shepherds. The tumor most often appears on the spleen or the heart although varieties also appear on the skin or in other locations.

Lymphoma is the third most common cancer diagnosed in all dog breeds. It is a cancer of lymphocytes (a type of blood cell) and lymphoid tissues. Lymphoid tissue is normally present in many places in the body including lymph nodes, spleen, liver, gastrointestinal tract and bone marrow.

Osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer, may be on the rise in Irish setters. It commonly is found in the dog’s limbs, although it may also be found in the shoulder, and secondary tumors may appear in the pelvis and other bone tissue, as well as the lungs. Most Irish setters who are affected develop the disease between seven and ten years of age. In some early cases, metastasis may be slowed by amputation of the affected limb and following with a course of chemotherapy.
