Sensitivities to chemotherapy can vary from patient to patient. Our team of professionals are equipped to help with any gut upsets that your pet may experience throughout treatment.

What are some common side effects of chemotherapy for dogs?

More common side effects are gastrointestinal and/or bone marrow issues. Regular blood work is run before each dose to catch any changes. We can discuss your pet’s tailored protocol with you.
