The management of a large rib osteosarcoma in a two-year-old neutered male Golden Retriever is reported. The tumour was initially misdiagnosed as a chondrosarcoma following incisional biopsy. Extensive en bloc resection and chest wall reconstruction with propylene mesh was performed, and carboplatin was administered postoperatively. Approximately 270 days after surgery there was no evidence of tumour recurrence and the patient was disease free.
