Chemotherapy medications are often recommended to treat patients that have been diagnosed with cancer. Some cancers are very responsive to chemotherapy (lymphoma, mast cell cancer). Chemotherapy may also be recommended for cancers that cannot be removed completely with surgery or in cancers that have a high likelihood of spreading to other organs.
Most canine and feline patients toleratate chemotherapy well, and our goal is to minimize side effects such as vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite or weakening of the immune system.
Most chemotherapy medications are administered by injection but some are given orally.
Recommendations and chemotherapy options will be outlined at your consultation visit.
