Chemotherapy for Dogs

Through diagnosis and consultation, we can determine a tailored treatment plan for your dog.

What is chemotherapy for dogs?

Chemotherapy is a group of drugs designed to kill cancer cells in dogs.

Will chemotherapy make my pet sick?

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.

How is chemotherapy administered in dogs?

Chemotherapy is most often administered intravenously. We make an effort to rotate injection sites to avoid scarring and discomfort for your pet. In some cases, medication can be administered by mouth.

What is the cost of canine chemotherapy?

Before starting treatment, we would be more than happy to walk you through all of the potential costs associated with chemotherapy.


Black History & Veterinary Medicine - Dr. Alfreda Johnson Webb (1923-1992)

Today's medical historian of colour is Dr. Alfreda Johnson Webb. Dr. Webb graduated with her DVM with our previous blog star Dr. Hinton, as one of the first female African American veterinarians in the US. Both of these great women were also the first black members of the Women’s Veterinary Medicine Association. She also founded the School of Veterinary Medicine of North Carolina State University. In 1971, she became the first African American woman in the North Carolina General Assembly, serving on many committees including serving as the Chairperson of Minority Affairs, president of the Democratic Women of NC, and a member of the NC Council on Sickle Cell Syndrome.   So you can see despite so many obstacles Dr. Webb was still able to make history and so can we!   Written by: Ashley G, VT   Resources:
