A seven-month-old Italian hound presented with anorexia, dyspnoea and weight loss. Physical examination showed two subcutaneous masses and radiographs revealed multiple opacities in the lungs, thorax, liver and spleen. Biopsy showed infiltrative proliferation of highly pleomorphic spindle to roundish cells indicative of a poorly differentiated sarcoma. Due to the unfavourable prognosis, the animal was euthanased and a post mortem examination confirmed a massive degree of metastatic spread.
