Chemotherapy for Dogs

What is chemotherapy?

At Riverview Animal Hospital chemotherapy is an option we offer to our patients that have been diagnosed with certain Cancers. Chemotherapy is cocktail of medications given to the patient that have the ability to kill cells that cause cancer.

Will chemotherapy make my pet sick, common side effects?

Chemotherapy side effects in dogs and cats are not as evident as in humans. If side effects do occur you may notice decreased appetite, vomiting and diarrhea. Hair loss does not usually occur in dog and cat patients.

How is chemotherapy given to my dog?

Chemotherapy is given to our patients via IV catheter. Your pet will have IV fluids placed, and will stay on them for a few hours after the chemotherapy medication is given.

What is the cost of canine chemotherapy?

If your pet is in need of chemotherapy we can set up an appointment with the Doctor to discuss the best Chemotherapy protocol for your pet’s condition. Please contact us for more information.
