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.

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