Calcification of bones

We have a 13 year old neutered male whom we were just informed has extreme calcification of his rear legs. I know that this means he is in pain and the vet is sending him home with medication to ease his pain. I’m interested in just what bone calcification means.


You should call your vet and ask him to explain exactly what he means by "calcification".

Typically this term is used often with bone cancer conditions or Chondrosarcoma, a type of cancer that affects the cartilage of the body; the connective tissue that is found between the bones and joints.
