By analyzing body mass, long bone length and genetics, researchers at the University of Bristol have revealed breeds with increased and reduced odds of osteosarcoma (an aggressive bone cancer).

The study, published in March in the journal Canine Medicine and Genetics, confirmed that dogs with large body mass and long bone length were more likely to develop osteosarcoma, with Rottweilers and Great Danes at highest risk. The Rhodesian Ridgeback was also identified as being at higher risk.

At lowest risk were Bichons Frises, French Bulldogs and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.
