There are mixed productive and destructive bone lesions in the proximal tibia, greater trochanter of the right femur, and proximal right humerus. The lesions are mainly composed of medullary sclerosis which is progressive over time. There is also increased soft tissue opacity within the stifle joint surrounding the tibial lesion.
