Rhabdomyosarcomas in dogs present a problem in veterinary medicine primarily because they are so rare. We have much to learn about them to help us guide our therapy. Rhabdomyosarcomas will be compared between dogs and humans. Clinically in veterinary medicine, they are approached like other soft tissue sarcomas but that might not be the most appropriate. A comparison between rhabdomyosarcoma and other soft tissue sarcomas will be discussed as well as the impact it might have on the future of the therapeutic approach.
