Bone cancer in Greyhound

How are you.
The Greyhound was diagnosed with the disease (bone cancer) and about 6 months ago another Greyhound was diagnosed with the same disease. I do not know this there is a genetic cause or what are the reasons?
I lost my 11 year old (retired) bitch about 6 months ago to Osteosarcoma. At the time the Vet commented that they rarely saw bone cancers in Greys years ago but after discussion with other Vets they believed that it was possibly due to most hounds not having a long lifespan in the “old days”. It maybe due to more now getting to full life expectancy could be the reason maybe that it’s more common. Not backed up by any research yet of course but a relevant point.
