An effective treatment protocol is difficult, but radiation therapy before or after definitive surgery will substantially enhance your dog's survival. Prior to surgery, a contrast CT scan should also be done, because it has been found to result in a substantially longer time until recurrence of the sarcoma. Chemotherapy, meanwhile, has not been found to enhance survival with this form of cancer.
