Abstract: Osteosarcoma (OSA) stands as the most frequently diagnosed primary bone cancer in dogs. Maxillary osteosarcomas are rare in dogs. This case report presents the clinical findings and diagnostic approach in a five-years-old male Rottweiler that was presented in the Veterinary Clinical Complex (VCC), DUVASU, and Mathura. Physical examination revealed severe facial swelling in both sides of maxillary region, accompanied by reddish pink color mucous membrane. Radiographic images depicted extensive lysis of the maxillary bones, exhibiting a characteristic moth-eaten appearance. Cytopathological examination of the neoplastic mass demonstrated numerous moderately pleomorphic cells embedded in abundant osteoid and several multinucleated cells. This case underscores the importance of cytology in the diagnosis of Osteosarcoma in dogs.
